Don't Touch the Mic, Baby Don't Come Near it

Parker converted 11 layups and scored 28 points in San Antonio’s 93-83 win over Memphis on Monday. Parker, the NBA leader in points in the paint, shot 12-for-13 from the field and rebounded his only miss for a layup. He also hit all four of his free-throw attempts.
Parker is shooting 54.4 percent from the field and averaging a career-high 19.4 points per game. His output against the Grizzlies was his best since a 30-point effort against Dallas on Dec. 1.
Parker has 488 of his 736 points this season in the paint, a place where centers and forwards, not point guards, usually thrive.
“When he’s got his mind made up that he wants to get to that paint, he gets to that paint,” said Memphis guard Bobby Jackson. “I can see why he leads the league in points in the paint because he’s fast, he’s effective. He knows how to score and how to finish at the basket.”
I forgot that on his only miss out of 17 shots (including 4 free throws, which he usually struggles with), Le Pénétration pulled down his own board and laid it in.
You can’t stop the pénétration. Bobby Jackson knows it. Eva Longoria knows it. Now you know it.
