San Antonio Spurs' Tony Parker and ASVEL-Villeurbanne lost their second consecutive game this time falling to Le Havre and former Spur Ian Mahinmi, 77-68. ASVEL and Le Havre were close throughout the first half. After the first quarter, ASVEL was behind 20-18 heading into the second quarter. Again, Parker and ASVEL kept the game close as both teams went into the half with the score, 39-36, Le Havre with the lead. The second half is what doomed ASVEL and in particular the third quarter. Le Havre scored 24 points in the third to take the lead for good as ASVEL would only muster 16 points in the pivotal quarter. Poor shooting on ASVEL's part didn't help as the team shot 38% for the game. It also didn't help ASVEL shot 48% and missed 14 free-throws (13 for 27). Le Harve converted 75% of their free-throws (12 for 16). Le Havre also outrebounded ASVEL 43 to 35 led by Mahinmi with 14 along with 10 points. Parker, who was recently voted October player of the month, finished with 21 points, 50% shooting (7-14), shot 60% from the three-point line (3-5), three rebounds, three assists, two turnovers in 32 minutes. Parker and ASVEL will next face Valencia and Spurs draftee Nando De Colo.
