The Utah Jazz flew back to Salt Lake City after Sunday's 106-91 Game 1 loss at the AT&T Center, ostensibly hoping an answer to their Tony Parker problem would arrive out of thin mountain air.

Apprised after Tuesday's practice of the solution put forth by Utah's Devin Harris — "Maybe give him a hard foul or two" — Parker did his best to stifle a yawn.

"It's not the first time somebody has said that," Parker said.

Indeed, it isn't a playoff series until some opponent offers to deposit the Spurs' All-Star point guard on his French derriere.
