Tony Parker in surprise comeback after injury

Latest update : 2008-11-29

French NBA star Tony Parker made a surprise comeback against the Miami Heats after his right-ankle injury back on November 7th. Initially expected to return in December, he came off the bench during the second period in Friday's game.

(AFP) - The San Antonio Spurs made Tony Parker's return from injury a triumphant one Friday with a 109-98 National Basketball Association victory over the Memphis Grizzlies.

The Spurs won their fourth straight game and had six players in double figures. Roger Mason's team-high 20 points included 14 in the third quarter.

France's Parker, who missed the last nine games with a sprained left ankle, came off the bench to start the second quarter for San Antonio.

He came out strong, hitting his first two shots, while handing out three assists in less than four minutes.

He finished with 15 points and seven assists in 17 minutes.

The Spurs led most of the way, and took a firm hold midway through the fourth quarter. Memphis had narrowed the gap to 82-79 when San Antonio's Manu Ginobili hit a 3-pointer, and George Hill converted a three-point play that gave San Antonio an 88-79 lead.

Ginobili finished with 14 points, and Tim Duncan posted a double-double with 11 points and 12 rebounds.
