Spurs point guard Tony Parker is done for the remainder of the playoffs after he ruptured his left quadriceps tendon late in Wednesday night's Game 2 victory over the Houston Rockets in the Western Conference semifinals, the Spurs confirmed Thursday morning.

The Spurs said a timeline for Parker's return would be determined at a later date.

Parker, who scored 18 points, was clutching his left knee as he lay on the floor after missing a short shot.

Parker's teammates spoke somberly Wednesday night when they addressed Parker's injury with the media. James also became the fourth player in National Basketball Association history (Ray Allen, Reggie Miller, Manu Ginobili) to make 300 playoff 3-pointers. Patty Mills was the primary point guard without Parker and Ginobili served as the lead backup. Parker averaged 3.1 assists in eight playoff games this season. Mills was more than ready to lead the San Antonio Spurs as a point guard.

"No excuses, we're just going to go complete and play our best game in Houston", he said. After the Spurs were blown out in Game 1, Parker responded with 18 points in 25 minutes before getting injured.

More than seeding or home-court advantage, Popovich said, the Spurs needed Parker in order to stay competitive against the other heavyweights in the Western Conference playoffs.

"Nothing they did should have bothered us, we just didn't play good".

James Harden led Houston's surges in the third quarter and finished with 43 points on 14-of-28 shooting. Like the San Antonio Spurs and Tim Duncan, I keep hoping this will be the year they finally fall off.

Budenholzer will remain involved in personnel decisions, but principal owner Tony Ressler stressed the new general manager will be in charge. "But what he brought to that team, I think it's unmatched".

After the Wednesday game, before the diagnosis was even out, San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich already said Parker's injury is "not good", according to NBA.com. Pop will first need to decide what to do with the 26.4 minutes Parker was playing per game in the playoffs.

Through all of Harden's hell-bent conducting in Game 1, the Rockets accrued 27 fast-break points.

"You find somebody to stop LeBron in these moments, I'll give you $100", Toronto's DeMar DeRozan said.
