SAN ANTONIO -- Following Saturday night's 92-83 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers, San Antonio's French players Tony Parker and Boris Diaw shared their thoughts on Friday's terrorist attacks in Paris.
Prior to the game, the spectators and players in the AT&T Center paid tribute to the victims with a brief moment of silence. The Spurs also played the French national anthem before the game.
"It's unbelievable. It's hard to just ... just right now it's hard to understand what's going on. I'm still in shock," Parker said. "All my prayers go to the families of the victims. It's tough. It's not just France. It's the whole world. It's tough. Actually, the game was [a] good [respite]. It helped me to think about something else. For the past 24 hours, I've just spent my time calling family and friends to make sure they're OK."
Diaw said the moment of silence prior to the contest was touching.
"It's nice for sure to see the solidarity. It's all around the world from stuff like this happening. Everybody feels touched by it. My friends and family are fine. But for sure we all know friends that did lose some friends, too. I got lucky enough that it didn't happen to me."
