SAN ANTONIO – Coach Gregg Popovich yelling at players is not something new but fans were caught off guard Tuesday night after seeing photos of Coach Pop in midair.

Social media reaction has been popping up this week with one person even comparing the Spurs head coach to Doc Brown from the “Back to the Future” movies.

The photos capture Popovich yelling and jumping during the second half of Tuesday’s games against the Clippers. The Spur won in a nail biter, 116 to 113.
