OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - The San Antonio Spurs are suddenly the team with a relaxed point guard who can dominate, and the Golden State Warriors are back to worrying about theirs.
Tony Parker cracked jokes and declared he would "definitely" remain in the starting lineup before he rested on a table and had his bruised left calf massaged during San Antonio's practice at the University of San Francisco on Saturday. Stephen Curry never surfaced during the portion of Golden State's practice open to reporters at the team's downtown Oakland headquarters, going through treatment on his nagging left ankle behind closed doors.
The Warriors said X-rays on Curry's ankle were negative, no MRI exam is scheduled and he's officially a game-time decision for Sunday's critical Game 4 tilt. The Spurs lead the series 2-1.
