Throughout the playoff series, Spurs point guard Tony Parker has downplayed his matchup with Clippers point guard Chris Paul.

Things were no different Saturday after the Spurs' 96-86 comeback victory, as Parker reiterated that he was not focusing solely on shutting down the Clippers star.

But Parker's teammate Tim Duncan did say that the tough defensive assignment makes Parker "even better."

"He couldn't find a rhythm on the offensive end, but he was playing defense really hard," Duncan said. "He got up into Chris and made some things happen in that respect, and I think that really got him going."
