Apparently no lead is large or satisfying enough when you’re Gregg Popovich.
The San Antonio Spurs just crushed the Dallas Mavericks in Game 7 of their first-round playoff series on Sunday and were up by nearly 30 points early in the fourth quarter. Tim Duncan exited the game a minute into the fourth with his team up by 28 and got a standing ovation from the fans, but he got no such reaction from Pop, who was still busy coaching as if it were a nail-biter.
A few minutes earlier in the game, the same thing happened with Tony Parker. Parker came out with 1:56 left in the third and the Spurs up 89-65, and Pop just stonewalled him, too:
Hey Pop, why so serious?

At least Pop loosened up after the game was over. Maybe he was too busy thinking about how tough Portland will be in the next round.
