He probably would have had even better numbers had he played down the stretch
I never said Steve Nash had a poor outing in game one, but isn't an MVP in the postseason expected to produce MVP-like numbers while limiting the production of the opposing player? Like Shawn Marion managed to do last night against Tony Parker?

Coming into last night's game, Parker was averaging 29 points per game this season against Phoenix, which is nine points above his season average. In every game this season against the Suns that Parker has managed to score over 20 points per game in, San Antonio has won. When Parker is held to his average or lower (like last night), the Spurs have lost.
