Parker fades after strong start in Game 4 loss

SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- Tony Parker was back. Maybe the San Antonio Spurs don't need to worry about his health.

But they can start fretting over other problems: the Miami Heat tying this series.

Parker started Game 4 of the NBA Finals looking spectacular and showing no signs of a mild hamstring strain that put his status in doubt until Thursday morning. But he didn't score in the second half and took just four shots, finishing with 15 points and nine assists.

The Spurs faded along with their All-Star point guard, losing to the resurgent Miami Heat 109-93.

Now the series is tied 2-all heading into the final home game for San Antonio on Sunday night. Parker appears OK to play, but the Spurs might need him to be spectacular again to win a fifth championship.
