Mario Chalmers (who has struggled these Finals) was driving the lane when he elbowed Tony Parker in the gut. After the game LeBron James and other Heat players tried to say that the elbow was inadvertent, it certainly didn’t look like that to me. That was intentional and deserved a flagrant. Tony Parker went to the line and missed both. “(Pain from the blow) definitely affected me but I’m a little frustrated, should have made them,” Parker said after the game. NBCSports.com

After being called for a flagrant foul for an elbow to the Spurs' Tony Parker in Game 2, Miami Heat guard Mario Chalmers said after the game he didn't "remember throwing an elbow." CBSSports.com

Late in Game 2, which the San Antonio Spurs lost 98-96 to tie the series 1-1, Spurs point guard Tony Parker caught this elbow on a flagrant foul committed by Miami Heat point guard Mario Chalmers. Parker stayed down for quite awhile. Shortly thereafter, the internet took advantage of the situation like the internet is wont to do. And thus, #Parkering was born. #Parkering is even simpler than #LeBroning.

Chalmers says there's a reason for his sub-standard play, but it doesn't seem like enough to explain the sharp drop-off from a player who commonly boosts Miami. "I'm just dealing with different things, trying to fight through it as much as I can," Chalmers said. "Nothing injury-wise, nothing personal, just trying to figure out where I fit in. "I don't think I'm handling as much as I was in previous playoffs. But it's something coach made an adjustment to. I've just got to figure out a way to be effective." ESPN.com

Later, it was Evan Turner, the trade deadline acquisition, who delivered two of Indiana's biggest baskets of the night. The first came after James' final turnover, on a breakaway layup. The second came courtesy of Mario Chalmers' turnover out of bounds. When the middle of the court opened up, Turner bolted through a clear path for an 81-80 lead with 90 seconds to go. "I know how to get my space, I've been doing that forever, you know what I mean?" Turner said, likely adding another spark to a rivalry that needs none. "Some of my moves I've been doing since I was a little kid, so I can walk a pretty fine line when it comes to that." ESPN.com
