Report: Tony Parker’s injury not serious

Tony Parker left the Spurs’ Game 5 closeout win over the Trail Blazers last night with a hamstring injury.

Spurs dispose of Blazers

In the end, this was not much of a game. Or a much of a series really. Portland was not really in the same league as San Antonio.
