Chandler Parsons, who has been a game-time decision for the last three games and has missed the last two, started on Friday night against Golden State. He played 34 minutes, had eight points, five assists and four rebounds.

“I was so glad to be out there and to be playing,” Parsons said. “Obviously, I’m still a little rusty. I missed a lot of easy ones that usually I am going to make, but that’s going to take some time with coming back. I’m definitely sore but it felt good to be back out there.”

The forward, who has been battling back spasms for over a month, tried something new in the last couple of days to help with his ailments.
