The Spurs thoroughly outplayed Houston in the latter stages on Wednesday but will be without point guard Tony Parker for the rest of the postseason after he suffered a ruptured left quadriceps in Game 2.
"It's not good", Popovich said of Parker, who scored 18 points in the win. Here's what he had told the Associated Press about his future Hall of Fame guard before the playoffs began: "If we don't have him, it's going to be a lot tougher to hang with teams like Houston and Golden State, the Clippers, that kind of thing".
He rose to his feet but was unable to put any pressure on his left leg, so he was carried off the court by rookie guard Dejounte Murray and center Dewayne Dedmon.
Manu Ginobili, who formed the infamous Big 3 in San Antonio with Parker and Tim Duncan, hinted that Parker could struggle to return from his injury.

"I said , if it's possible would you let me know, "Am I under investigation?'", Trump said of one of those phone calls". But Trump's own history of self-surveillance invites the possibility that these "tapes" could very well exist.

Rockets: Houston had scored 100 points in every playoff game this season.
Now the team will have to do precisely that, tied 1-1 with Houston and heading into a pivotal Game 3 on Friday night. He's fifth in total playoff assists with 1,137 and ninth in total playoff scoring with 4,012 points. James (5,777 points) now only trails Michael Jordan (5,987), the player to whom he has been compared since he was a teenager. For the postseason, he was averaging 15.9 points, 3.1 assists and 2.5 rebounds per game. It certainly wasn't a pretty game to watch, as the Spurs shot 45.3 percent from the field and won thanks to the Rockets' 36.4 shooting percentage. He also became the fourth player in National Basketball Association history (after Ray Allen, Reggie Miller, Manu Ginobili) to make 300 playoff three-pointers.
"You never want to see a teammate go down", Mills said, adding that the Spurs had a "sunken feeling" when they saw Parker go down.

But Horgan would not make a commitment to working with the Green leader in a minority government. Asked several times if she accepts personal responsibility, Clark avoided a direct answer.
James Harden held up his end of the bargain with 43 points, but he received no help from his teammates.
San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich had given a grim assessment of Parker's injury following his team's win.
"I don't know what it is but I just like playing here", he said.
The Spurs in my mind were at least going to make the series interesting between them and the Warriors after they beat the Rockets.
