Parker's postseason experience, however, has been evident, and he's been the team's second-best player in the 2017 playoffs.
San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker will miss the rest of the playoffs after rupturing the quadriceps tendon in his left leg in Game 2 of the Western Conference semi-finals against the Houston Rockets.
Parker left the game with 8:43 remaining after he missed a floater in the paint and fell to the floor awkwardly. Spurs officials said Parker will undergo an MRI on Thursday morning and update his status after, but Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said following that game that "its not good". Houston demolished the Spurs with a 27-point victory in the opener before San Antonio returned serve with a 25-point beat down of the Rockets in Game 2.
Parker scored 18 points on 61.5 percent shooting in Game 2, and he's second on the team with 15.9 points per game in the playoffs.
Parker, 34, is a four-time National Basketball Association champion and longtime leader for San Antonio - which many believed could be Golden State's final hurdle for a third-straight Finals appearance.

Keiynan thanked his fans for their support the following day on Twitter , writing, "Nothing better than happy tears". The actor said it was not until recently he was able to accept his sexual orientation.
San Antonio's victory celebration was tempered, however, by an injury to guard Tony Parker. They lost Tony Parker, as the point guard suffered a awful knee injury during the May 3 showdown with the Houston Rockets. He says he's fine, but he's shooting only 31 percent from the field in his last four games (9 for 30 so far in this series), and a really troubling 19 percent from 3-point range in that span.
In Cleveland, James became the NBA's second all-time leading scorer in the postseason with a 39 point performance as the Cavaliers crushed the Toronto Raptors in game two. To a man, they expressed concern for Parker's health and his future. Although he only had seven points for the night, it was when he provided offense that mattered, making sure the Spurs kept their lead. "It's tough. We say a prayer for him". Mills should start game three in Houston. Parker averaged 3.1 assists in eight playoff games this season.
"We just didn't to it tonight". This is weird, not just because we didn't expect it, but because the regular season couldn't have played out any differently than this. Parker and Ginobili won their 131st postseason game as teammates, matching the league record held by Parker and Duncan. Toronto was blown out for the fifth straight time in Cleveland in the playoffs, losing each by an average of 24.2 points.
"Tony is a huge part of this team and we all know that", Gasol said.
