|Parker Splits from Longoria, Then Keeps Spurs Hot
|SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- Tony Parker scored 21 points, hours after his Hollywood actress wife filed for divorce, to lead the San Antonio Spurs to a 103-94 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday night.
The Spurs won their eighth straight and improved to 9-1, tying a franchise best start that even Tim Duncan never saw during any of the four championship runs for the Spurs.
But when Parker arrived at the arena, none of that seemed to matter.
Actress Eva Longoria filed court papers in Los Angeles earlier Wednesday to divorce Parker, citing irreconcilable differences between the "Desperate Housewives" star and the point guard. A swarm of media before the game waited for Parker, who called the divorce a private matter.
Derrick Rose scored 33 points for the Bulls, whose win streak ended at four.
