San Antonio Spurs' point guard Tony Parker came up with another epic performance last night to guide his team to a 101-95 victory over New Orleans Pelicans.
It's not just his points scoring ability that is impressive, with 27 on the night. It's his link-up play skills that make him the most valuable player at the Spurs disposal.
Time and time again Monday night he came up with the clutch lay-up that bemused New Orleans, and delighted his team-mates.
Speaking to Gulfnews after the game, Parker admitted that after fellow team-mate Tim Duncan fouled out in the game, he had to up his responsibilities.
“When I saw TD [Duncan] go out, I knew I was going to be aggressive and try to create for myself or for my teammates,” Parker explained.
Duncan had scored 18 points before he left the game, which was a tense match-up throughout. The Pelicans (15-22) are certainly struggling this season, but they put up a good fight against a Spurs (30-8) outfit that is leading the Western Conference.
Next up for Parker and the mighty Spurs is the Utah Jazz at home Wednesday night.
