"Tonight he played his best game in a while," said Popovich.
Spurs point guard Parker wasn't 100 percent because of an injured hamstring but the former Finals MVP astonished everyone with a team high 26 points, including a crucial basket after the Heat cutting the gap to nine with two minutes left.
