Other than Lebron James, no one is playing better right now than Tony Parker
 

Over the last 13 games dating back to January 13th, the Spurs have only lost once (@ Detroit this past Friday). During this stretch Tim Duncan has sat out 8 of these games, and in the 5 he has played has only averaged 27 and a half minutes per game. Manu Ginobili has also missed 8 of the 13 games, and has only averaged 16 minutes in 5 contests. Out of the past 13 games, Manu and Tim have only suited up together once and that was Jan. 13 against the Timberwolves.

Tony Parker has primarily led this shorthanded team through this stretch flawlessly with solid averages of 24.2 points, 9.3 assists, 2.8 rebounds, while shooting 52% from the field and 82% from the free throw line. The most minutes TP has played in any game this stretch was 37 minutes once.

In the month of February (4 games) Tony has averaged 28 points, 9.8 assists, 3.5 rebounds, and shot 56% and 93% from the field and free throw line respectively.

Parker has carried the team on his back all season, but specifically the last month or so. He is not only playing like the top point guard in the league lately but arguably playing the best basketball in the league right now, south of anyone named Lebron James.

James Harden is pretty close too.

Harden.
Last five games he has been averaging 26 points per game. Shooting nearly 60% from the field and 63% from 3.
Been dishing out 8 assists a game along with 7 and a half rebounds a game. With 2 steals a game.
