June 9, 2014 Updates

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

Dime: How did it feel when President Obama made the joke about you last week at the White House about how your teammates scream at you on the court? Is he really as cool as he seems in person? Mario Chalmers: Obama is really cool. He knows a lot about basketball and as you seen with the video he said he has my back. Dime

Dime: Can you talk about the team chemistry? You guys are always having the most fun it seems whether it is with the nickname the Heatles, spending holidays together, the epic Harlem shake video.

What is the funniest thing they did? MC: We are all funny but if I had to say someone it would be James Jones. He is always cracking jokes on someone. Dime

The Miami Heat again will be without two starters when they face the New York Knicks on Thursday night at Madison Square Garden. Small forward Shane Battier will miss his fourth consecutive game with a strained left quadriceps, with point guard Mario Chalmers out for a second consecutive game with Achilles tendinitis that has had him sidelined since halftime of Sunday's victory over the Toronto Raptors at AmericanAirlines Arena.

Pat Riley: We don’t like to build through the draft. If you’re going to do that, then you’re probably going to have to lose for two or three or four years in a row, and get high lottery picks. In my 19 years here, we’ve been in the lottery three times. We ended up getting three good players out of that. But it’s not much fun to go through. And so picking a late-round pick, somewhere between 22 and 30, wherever we are, you try to do the best homework you can on those kinds of draft choice. Norris Cole is a perfect example of a guy that we picked very late and is in our rotation. Mario Chalmers was a second-round pick. IndexUniverse.com

The Hawks just couldn't close in regulation, not with James knocking down two three-pointers and dunking over Millsap in the final 1:49 of regulation, before driving and finding Ray Allen in the left corner, which led to a foul and Allen making three free throws. Nor could the Hawks complete the task in the overtime, with Korver and Millsap both missing three-pointers and Korver—with Mario Chalmers under him—unable to convert an inbounds lob from Pero Antic. "They made a bunch of really clutch plays tonight," Korver said. "We should have won that game a couple times. That's why they are champions. They've been through a bunch of these games, and we're still growing." "We were just one play away every time from putting them away and we couldn't do it," Horford said. "Credit to them."
