The San Antonio Spurs Tony Parker made a breathtaking pass during several unforgettable moments in Game 2 of their second-round series on Monday.
Through all of the hoopla that happened during the final minutes of the game, the most impressive play to emerge from the rubble came with 26 seconds left in a five-point game. Looking to make something happen, Tony Parker darted into the paint, spun around Steven Adams, and just as he appeared to be off balance with nowhere to go, made one of the most breathtaking passes you’ll ever see.
Parker has proven to be an excellent floor leader throughout his career with the Spurs. For him to make the move to make a brilliant pass to LaMarcus Aldridge from behind the arc, it stands for what Parker can still do at this point in his career.
Parker is only averaging 8.0 points on 40 percent shooting in these playoffs, but he’s a perpetual threat to burn a big man off the dribble, get to the rim and force a defensive rotation.

San Antonio has always displayed what it is like to play team basketball. How did Parker know Aldridge was going to be on the top of the key to receive the pass? These players know each other’s tendencies and understand where they need to be on the floor in certain situations.
Understandably, Aldridge may not be the perfect example for being in the right spot, as he did not make a single 3-pointer during the regular season and was on the end of hitting one that brought the Spurs to within two.
We all know how game two ended, but you have to give credit to Parker for making such an unbelievable play down the stretch for his team.
