SAN ANTONIO Spurs guard Tony Parker says his sore right hamstring can tear "any time now" heading into Game 5 of the NBA Finals against the Miami Heat.

Parker said Saturday he would take about 10 days to rest if this were the regular season. But with the series tied 2-all heading into San Antonio's final home game Sunday, the All-Star says, "If it gets a tear, that's life."

Parker strained the hamstring in a Game 3 blowout victory for the Spurs. He returned with a dazzling start in Game 4 on Thursday night, only to not score in the second half. Parker says he grew tired as the Heat pulled away to reclaim home-court advantage.

Despite the blunt assessment of his hamstring, Parker says he feels he's getting stronger.
