The last time Tony Parker shared the floor with the Los Angeles Lakers, he didn’t last the night.

The Spurs’ All-Star point guard missed nine of his first 10 shots, scored four points and was thoroughly and inexplicably outplayed by Lakers’ backup Steve Blake before coach Gregg Popovich had seen enough.

Popovich yanked Parker from the fourth quarter of what became a 91-86 loss to the Kobe Bryant-less Lakers on Sunday at the Staples Center and later didn’t sugarcoat the reason why.

“He was playing awful,” Popovich said.

Redemption could come quick for Parker. Sunday afternoon at the AT&T Center, a week to the day, the second-seeded Spurs open the Western Conference playoffs against the same Lakers.

“I’m pretty sure I’ll play better than last game,” Parker said Friday.

It is a guarantee, but not a boastful one. Parker realizes he could hardly play worse than the day he was outdueled by Blake, who scored 23 points.

“Last time we played L.A., it was maybe the worst game of my season,” Parker said. “I had a rough shooting night, and everything was hurting.”

Up until March 1, when Parker sprained his left ankle landing awkwardly on the foot of Sacramento guard Isaiah Thomas, he was playing — as Popovich wasted no opportunity to note — like the best point guard in the NBA.

He averaged 26.1 points and 8.3 assists in February after being named the Western Conference’s Player of the Month in January and led the Spurs to the top of the NBA standings.

At the time, Parker, 30, was generating buzz as perhaps the league’s Most Valuable Player not named LeBron James or Kevin Durant.
