07:12 AM ET 06.21 | Seconds away from winning a title in Game 6, it all came crashing down for the Spurs in Game 7. Arguably the finest season of Tony Parker's career ended in horrific fashion, with a 3-for-12 performance following his 6-for-23 in Game 6. Parker made no excuses, and defended [Gregg Popovich's] decision to sit him for an extra shooter on the key late possession after the Spurs fell behind by four points. "I have no excuse," Parker said. "I'm not going to put it on my hammy and stuff like that. I just didn't play well." ... Danny Green, whose blistering shooting made him a Finals MVP candidate through five games, was even worse, missing 11 of 12 shots overall and 1 for 6 from 3-point range. Manu Ginobili had a solid overall game (18 points, five assists) but withered badly.
