Aging Parker Still Productive 

The 33-year-old Parker has missed just five games this season due to injury or rest, and he was averaging 12.4 points and 5.1 assists coming into the game, which the Spurs eventually lost, 99-91.

Although Parker is past his prime and his numbers are down from previous years, he is one of the veteran leaders on a San Antonio team that is nipping on the heels of the Golden State Warriors for the top spot in the Western Conference.
