Popovich takes dig at players, Cavs during postgame

Popovich says 'it was like men and boys'


SAN ANTONIO – Gregg Popovich didn’t mince words after the Spurs were dismantled by Golden State late Monday night in Oakland.  

“It was like men and boys out there tonight,” Popovich said after the Spurs lost to Golden State, 120-90. 

The Spurs were outplayed in numerous facets of the game and allowed Stephen Curry to torch their team defense to the tune of 37 points.  

Popovich was also asked by reporters how you counter the Warriors speed moving forward. The Spurs and Warriors play three more times this season. 

“I have no idea,” said Popovich. “I can’t control their speed. You know it’s a hell of a team, really disappointed.”

Coach Popovich also used the postgame presser to take a dig at the Cavaliers, who recently fired coach David Blatt after the Cavs lost to Golden State by 34 points. 

“I’m just glad my general manager wasn’t in the locker room,” Popovich said. “Because it might have gotten me fired.”

The Spurs head back to San Antonio for a home game against Houston on Wednesday, then hit the road for a Saturday primetime game against Cleveland and their new head coach Tyronn Lue.

You can see that game live on KSAT at 7:30 p.m.
