Chalmers will draw the initial assignment on Tony Parker, though Norris Cole and perhaps LeBron James also will chase the Spurs’ point guard at times. The key?

“Keep a body on him,” Chalmers said. “Try to match his speed and not let him get any open looks. He never gets rattled. It’s going to be my job to make it a tough series for him.” Chalmers has always been disruptive in passing lanes, but he said his individual defense “is a lot better. I keep getting wiser and wiser.”

Parker was fast then, and he’s even faster now. He consistently beat the Grizzlies’ Mike Conley and Tony Allen on the dribble, which means Miami’s Mario Chalmers and Norris Cole will need to have their spikes on. He will force James and Dwyane Wade into lots of chases.

Parker is most dangerous when threading through a thicket of screens. The Spurs are a precision team that has this down to a science. Should Heat defenders go over or under those screens? And when Heat players shift and swipe, rotate and help, shooters Danny Green, Kawhi Leonard and Matt Bonner will be ready to catch and shoot.

Parker is a master of misdirection. He cuts the corner and penetrates the lane as well as anyone. His quickness and agility make him underrated on defense, where he will frequently match up against Chalmers’ pugnaciousness and Cole’s speed.
