Win or lose Gregg Popovich can always be counted on for a very concise and uncomfortable postgame press conference. Not surprisingly, after the Spurs lost Game 6 of the NBA Finals to the Heat, Pop was back to his old tricks. You can enjoy the entire transcript courtesy of ASAP Sports and the videos which will make you feel weird. Q. How did you guys lose the game, was it the turnovers? It was veteran guys getting tired? A mix of it? COACH GREGG POPOVICH: It was a helluva game. It was a helluva game. It was an overtime game. It’s a game of mistakes. And they ended up on the winning side. Q. Did you take into consideration fouling up by three with the final seconds of regulation? COACH GREGG POPOVICH: That’s a European question, right? Q. Yes. We usually do in Italy and Europe, anyways. COACH GREGG POPOVICH: Right. We don’t. Q. Coach, what do you do for Game 7? How do you get your guys into Game 7? COACH GREGG POPOVICH: Get them on a bus, it arrives at the ramp over here, we get off the bus, we get on the court and we play. That’s how we get ready. Q. Coach, after this disappointing loss, how angry or how fired up do you think you guys will come with greater intensity? Because you guys had the lead and it was basically in the bag. COACH GREGG POPOVICH: So what’s your question? You want to know how angry we’ll be? Q. Yes. How much more intensity? That was your championship. COACH GREGG POPOVICH: We were very intense, and so was Miami. And I don’t have any problem with our intensity. Q. As far as Tim, was Tim tired? Because you look like you held him out fora point where it looked like he was dominating. Could you explain Tim’s fatigue? How is he doing? COACH GREGG POPOVICH: Tim is no more tired than anybody else. Q. Coach, could you talk about the impact Chris Andersen had today. COACH GREGG POPOVICH: Chris is a real aggressive active player. And he does his best to play D and rebound and always does a pretty good job. [Larry Brown Sports] Article found on: Next Impulse Sports
