Parker’s Crazy Dagger Leads to Spurs Win

The first pick-and-roll didn’t work for San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker. The second pick-and-roll didn’t work either. Finally, with the shot clock running down, Parker needed to make his move.
“Tony did everything wrong and did everything right on that possession,” (LeBron) James said, chuckling at the absurdity.
In time either way — the referees double and triple checked — and Parker’s 16-foot shot hit the backboard and went it, giving the Spurs a 92-88 lead, which turned out to the final score in Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday.
“It felt like forever, too,” Parker said. “It was a crazy play. I thought I lost the ball three or four times. And it didn’t work out like I wanted it to. At the end I was just trying to get a shot up.”
