SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- Spurs guard Tony Parker says his sore right hamstring can tear "any time now" heading into Game 5 of the NBA Finals against the Miami Heat.
Parker said Saturday he would take about 10 days to rest if this were the regular season. But with the series tied 2-all heading into San Antonio's final home game Sunday, the All-Star says, "If it gets a tear, that's life."
Parker strained the hamstring in a Game 3 blowout victory for the Spurs. He returned with a dazzling start in Game 4 on Thursday night, only to not score in the second half. Parker says he grew tired as the Heat pulled away to reclaim home-court advantage.
Despite the blunt assessment of his hamstring, Parker says he feels he's getting stronger.

Spurs, your turn.
If only it was so easy for San Antonio. The elementary analysis of the 2013 NBA Finals says the Spurs are due for a victory in Sunday night's Game 5. Through the first four games they've gone back and forth with Miami, winning then losing to give us a 2-2 deadlock.
But the Game 4 setback opens up a whole new round of issues, with the least troublesome...
We’re not sure what restaurant made this monstrosity of a pizza, using some olives, meats and some green peppers to make the team mascot, Larry O’Brien Trophy and Spurs logo on this table-sized delight that could feed a small village.
Questions: Do they deliver, and is there a f–king box for that?

The enemy of my enemy is my friend. The San Antonio Spurs are not the most interesting or exciting NBA team around (and Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich likes it that way). They’re not polarizing like the Miami Heat. People tune in to see them fall. And one of the keys to making the Heat fall is Spurs forward Danny Green.
