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

So I’m very confident, you know, for Game 2 that my ankle will hold up.” San Antonio Express-News

They're used to playing without air conditioning. After the AC went out in the AT&T Center, and temperatures rose over the course of the game, the Spurs' players said it didn't effect them, because it was normal going for them. "Me personally, it didn't bother me," Tony Parker said. "Felt like Europe. We never have AC in Europe, so it didn't bother me at all." "For sure, I've played more years in situations like this than with AC on the court. Not a big deal in that case," Manu Ginobili said. CBSSports.com
