National Basketball Association Playoff Game Capsules

San Antonio, TX (Sports Network) – Tony Parker poured in 30 points on 13-of-20
shooting from the field as the San Antonio Spurs held off the Cleveland
Cavaliers, 103-92, in Game 2 of the NBA Finals. Tim Duncan added 23 points,
eight assists and nine rebounds for San Antonio, which leads the best-of-seven
series 2-0. Manu Ginobili scored 25 points and was 11-of-11 from the free
throw line for the Spurs, who are going for their fourth NBA championship in
nine seasons and look to take a commanding 3-0 lead as the series shifts to
Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland for Game 3 on Tuesday. LeBron James, who was
hampered by foul trouble early in the contest, netted 25 points for
Cleveland, which trailed by as many as 28 points in the first half and could
never recover despite a late surge. Drew Gooden contributed 13 points and
six rebounds for the Cavaliers, who outscored the Spurs 30-14 in the fourth
quarter to make a run, but it wasn’t enough to overcome their poor performance
the rest of the contest.
