Gregg Popovich and R.C. Buford can exhale now.

After tweaking his right knee playing with the French national team against Spain in preparation for EuroBasket (the European championships that start Sept. 7), Tony Parker got an MRI on his knee Monday.

It’s was nothing, the French team announced, via Basket USA. Nothing to see here, move along.

“The tests have confirmed this morning that there was nothing serious at the knee of Tony Parker,” said Patrick Beesley, director teams France.

Parker will continue to train with and play for France in the upcoming tournament.

Of course, that makes the Spurs brass a little nervous as Parker is the lynchpin of the Spurs current success. Yes, Tim Duncan has had resurgence and Kawhi Leonard makes things happen, but Parker is the point guard that directs it all.

San Antonio needs him and needs him healthy to make another deep playoff run. Of course, with Popovich at the helm you know Parker will get plenty of rest during the season. No matter how much that pisses off David Stern.

If you’re a Knicks fan, the positive is that at least Kristaps Porzingis tried to make a play.

But he was not going to stop the athletic Bradley Beal with a full head of steam, and the result was a Beal dunking over Porzingis as he tries to block the attempt.

Beal wasn’t sharp, scoring 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting. The Knicks has an efficient Carmelo Anthony and that got them the win.
