Besides that question, the other factor that will determine how much the Spurs miss Parker is how they fill the minutes Mills can't play.

The San Antonio Spurs and Houston Rockets Game 3 kicks off at 09:30 p.m.

San Antonio and Houston traded blowout victories to open the series and one of the teams will take a 2-1 lead when the Spurs visit the Rockets in Wednesday's Western Conference semifinals. The 34-year-old was injured in the fourth quarter of Game 2.

"You can't replace Tony Parker. You don't worry about it, you don't cry about it, you just play". While the Spurs on't be able to replace his veteran leadership and savvy, playing without him won't be foreign territory for them, Parker missed 19 games during the regular season.

"I hate it for Tony", he said. "Tonight this was needed and I did it".

Game 4 is on Sunday.

James Harden exploded for 43 points in a losing effort for Houston. But he had only five assists and complained about the officiating all night.

The Rockets didn't have their same shooting touch in Game 2 as they did in Game 1. "We're all ready to step up and make an impact".

And the injury left the Spurs feeling the same.

"It sucks to see somebody go down that way especially for what he brings to their team", Ariza said. "Nothing they did should have bothered us". "We just had to weather the storm". Both Harden and Patrick Beverley picked up technicals for complaining about calls. Leonard made the free throw to make it 78-72.

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.

The team said a timeline for his return will be determined later. Green had 11 points. The Rockets scored just 92 points, a season low. The Houston Rockets are allowing 31.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44 rebounds per game. He's fifth in total playoff assists with 1,137 and ninth in total playoff scoring with 4,012 points.

Spurs guard Jonathon Simmons, right, puts up a shot over Rockets forward Ryan Anderson in Game 2.

Houston Rockets Game 3 (live stream online & score below) of the Eastern Conference semifinals gets underway. "It's not an easy task, but I think he got a little more comfortable as the game went on".

Aldridge also notched four of San Antonio's eight blocks.
