Tony Parker took his share of the blame for the San Antonio Spurs' recent struggles, which includes a four-game losing streak.
“It’s tough right now," Parker said. "It’s tough. Since I’ve been with the Spurs, I’ve never experienced that in a 3-game, 4-game stretch. We’re not making shots. It starts with me. I’m not making shots. Our 3-point shooters are not making shots, and everything is tough. We just have to stay positive."
Parker believes finding his midrange jumper again is at the core of his offensive struggles.
“That’s the whole key. I had great looks tonight, shots that I always make. That’s why it’s like … it looks good. It feels good when I shot it. But I miss my first 5 or 6 shots, and then you know the defense, waits until I make that shot. Once I make that shot, everything will open up. The last three games, I haven’t been hitting that shot.”
