San Antonio Spurs. TONY PARKER. B+. Tony Parker had a full 360 on Friday night compared to his pitiful performance against the Trail Blazers. The French guard stuffed the box score against the Kings, finishing with 19 points, five rebounds, and four assists. Another big stat from Friday night was that Parker had zero turnovers. Defensively, Parker could have played better and tried to slow down Sacramento guard Ray McCallum who scored 20. Still, you can’t really knock Parker too much for that especially considering that San Antonio came away with the win.. PG
