Tony Parker carves up the Grizzlies’ defense (VIDEO)

May 20, 2013, 1:02 AM EST

When Lionel Hollins and the rest of the Grizzlies coaching staff put together the new game plan for Tuesday’s Game 2, job number one has to be stop Tony Parker and his penetration. Parker carved up the Memphis defense Sunday, as you can see in the video above.

Hollins said after the game the Grizzlies over helped on these drives, and you can see that here, too. Watch four Memphis players collapse into the paint, then Parker kicks out to the open shooter. That’s how you get 14 threes from the Spurs. And an easy Game 1 win.

    The Spurs are so deadly because if it is not Tony Parker being the primary ballhandler and playmaker, it is Manu Ginobili. They both can do it all as points. Pick and roll, create own shot, finish at the basket in traffic, draw and dish, make circus shots, make clutch shots in crunch time. These guys are adept with the basketball, iq off the charts and have a decade of experience with Pop and his evolving system all while playing into late May or beyond every year.

    Parker is unstoppable when he’s hitting those quick jumpers after going around a screen. That forces the big man to step up on him, and Parker is way too quick and too good of a decision-maker for bigs to handle.
