If the Spurs want to take two more games from the Heat in the NBA Finals to win their fifth championship, they may have to do it without their star point guard. Tony Parker tweaked his hamstring in Game 3 on Tuesday night and now his status for Game 4 is up in the air. "We'll see," Parker said after the game, reports the San Antonio Express-News. "I felt something on my hamstring, so I don't know, I have no idea. We will do an MRI tomorrow. Hopefully it's nothing big and it's just a cramping, or got tight on me. I don't know, it was just a weird feeling. I just wanted to make sure the doctor said I was okay and then I played tow minutes in the fourth quarter and we were up big so Pop didn't want to take a risk. We will see tomorrow" Parker left the court midway through the third quarter to be examined. He started the 4th quarter for the Spurs, but after San Antonio broke the game open, Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich pulled his veteran stars to get them some extra rest. If Parker ends up sitting out for Game 4 in San Antonio on Thursday night, it could leave the Spurs lacking offensively. Parker's improbable jumper sealed the win in Game 1 in Miami, but managed just six points and eight assists in 27 minutes in Game 3.
