Tony Parker to be more aggressive against Mavericks

Tony Parker isn't happy with his San Antonio Spurs side dropping a game at home against the Dallas Mavericks. 

And the Frenchman knows exactly what he wants to do to rectify the situation in the NBA playoffs.

The loss and general nature of the Spurs' play hasn’t set well with the team, who after being expected to sweep the Mavericks with relative ease, find themselves trekking across Texas with the series tied at 1-1.

Looking to improve on offense, San Antonio point guard Tony Parker says he is putting it on himself to be more aggressive offensively, in an attempt to stamp their dominance on the series.

"Tony Parker: “Today, Pop told me if I have to shoot 25 times, I have to shoot 25 times.'" Brad Townsend of the Dallas Morning News tweeted out earlier today.

The French point guard was nowhere near his best during San Antonio’s Game 2 loss, only shooting ten times, down from his season average and considerably down from his Game 1 attempts, and only picking up a handful of assists on a quiet night that fans will be hoping was just a blip.

It sounds that Parker will be a bit more selfish and look to drive into the paint a bit more in Game 3 tomorrow, so look for him to lead by example against the Mavs at American Airlines Center.
