Game Story

PHOENIX (Ticker) -- The Phoenix Suns guarded Tim Duncan a little too well, and that allowed Tony Parker to get the last shot. Parker's 21-foot jumper with 3.8 seconds remaining snapped a tie as the San Antonio Spurs pulled out an 86-84 victory over the Suns. Duncan had struggled to get open looks due to tight defense by Jake Voskhul and was not open on the final play. The Spurs were trying to get the ball to Duncan, but Parker was free. With five seconds left on the shot clock, the point guard hit a 21-footer over Howard Eisley to give the Spurs the lead. "I had no clue who was going to take it, I had no idea," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "I just wanted anybody that might make a shot to take it. With our team, we've had a tough time field goal percentage wise and free throws wise, so I really don't have any preference right now to tell you the truth." "They tried to double team, so I kept the ball and let the clock go down and I was confident to take that shot and make it," Parker said. "They doubled Timmy every time and we had some pretty good wide open shots and some pretty good penetration so we just tried to get something going." Parker's clutch jumper capped an otherwise poor shooting night for San Antonio, which shot 40 percent (37-of-92). Parker had missed 12 of his first 16 shots before giving the Spurs just their fifth regular-season win in the last 25 visits to Phoenix. After a timeout, Phoenix had once last chance to tie and intended to give Casey Jacobsen or Joe Johnson the ball. But Voskhul's pass was deflected by Hedo Turkoglu and resulted in a jump ball with 0.1 seconds left. "Obviously we had a chance to win," Suns coach Mike D'Antoni said. "I am proud of the way the guys fought. We did not play well all the time and we made mistakes, but they kept fighting and fighting and that is all we can expect out of them right now." The dramatic ending was nothing new for these teams, who met in San Antonio on opening night with the Spurs posting a one-point win. But before the season-opening win, the teams played a grueling six-game playoff series in which three games were decided by two points or less and five were decided by less than 10. Although the Suns dramatically have changed their roster since last season, neither Popovich or Duncan were surprised that the Suns kept the contest close. "Typical, Suns-Spurs game," Popovich said. "They are always tough on us. They spread the floor. It always seems like every game is like this." "It's always like this," added Duncan, who collected 25 points and 12 rebounds. "These guys really get up for us. They have a great game plan to counter what we do and it always seems to end up that way." The Suns faced a 69-62 deficit through three quarters but took a 78-77 lead with just over four minutes remaining on Johnson's jumper. But after Shawn Marion's basket gave Phoenix an 84-80 edge with 1:25 to play, Duncan scored his first points of the quarter with 68 seconds left. A penetrating Parker found Rasho Nesterovic for a tying dunk 32 seconds later.
