Gregg Popovich rips Spurs for ‘pathetic performance’ despite win
The San Antonio Spurs may have won on Tuesday night, but you wouldn’t have been able to tell based on Gregg Popovich’s postgame interview.
The Spurs needed a last-second shot from Rudy Gay to top the Suns 126-124. Maybe it’s because they were facing an 11-42 team, but Pop felt like his Spurs did not put forth their best effort. He ripped his team after the game, saying they were “outplayed, outcoached” by the Suns, who got robbed.

Between this and calling a timeout 16 seconds into a recent game, it’s clear Pop is trying to send a message to his team. He is not satisfied with their play and wants them to know it.
San Antonio may be 30-22, but Pop knows that is not good enough in what is a tough and competitive Western Conference.
