Spurs point guard Tony Parker said he’s approaching full strength after playing the first two games of the Western Conference Finals with a Grade 1 hamstring strain.
Based on his production and the Spurs dominance over the Thunder thus far you wouldn't even thought Parker was dealing with any type of injury. Surely the extra days of rest have helped Parker too as they last played on Wednesday and Game 3 isn't until Sunday night in Oklahoma City. ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Marc Krauss went 1-for-4 with a solo home run on Thursday in Toronto.
Krauss is hitting only .150 with a .350 slugging percentage after launching his first home run of the season. It was just his seventh game of the season, but there’s no doubt he’ll need to cut down on the strikeouts if he’s ever going to be able to showcase the decent pop he has. The left-handed hitter was called up from AAA to try and infuse some offense in Anaheim and was slugging .639 over his past 10 games. With Matt Joyce really struggling, expect Krauss to steal some of his at-bats over the next few weeks. Analysis: Kevin Luchansky
