San Antonio Spurs: Tony Parker's Biggest Game
Only four Spurs have ever scored 55 points or more in the history of the team: David Robinson (71), George Gervin (63 and 55), LaMarcus Aldridge (56), and Tony Parker. On November 5th, 2008, Tony simply couldn't be contained in a road game against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
In an absolute thriller that went into double overtime, it was a three-pronged attack of Parker, Tim Duncan, and Roger Mason that led the way in a narrow Spurs victory. In the 129-125 win, Tony put up a staggering 55 points, 10 assists, and seven rebounds on a 22-of-36 shooting night.
Parker's shot chart in the game is a sight to behold, as all but three of his total shots came from inside the arc.
When it came to crunch time, Parker made three buckets in the fourth, two in the first overtime, and three more in the game-deciding second overtime.
Rounding out the Spurs' offensive attack was Mr. Consistent himself, Tim Duncan, with 30 points and 16 boards. A surprise performance by Roger Mason of 26 points also contributed to the win.
Tony Parker retired with six NBA All-Star appearances, a Finals MVP, and four championships and will be eligible for the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2023.
