Gregg Popovich gives priceless answer about Danny Green guarding Kevin Durant

Warriors Vs Spurs Playoff Preview Starting Lineups Odds Predictions TV Injuries | NBA 4/14/18 Gregg Popovich gives priceless answer about Danny Green guarding Kevin Durant

Popovich enthusiasts will be pleased to know the great man has already graced the National Basketball Association playoffs with a classic of the "mid-game sideline interviews are stupid" genre, shutting down not one but two whole questions about the Spurs' slow start against the Warriors.

Reflecting on San Antonio's defeat, Popovich said: "We looked like deer in the headlights".

Point guard Dejounte Murray agreed with Popovich's assessment and claimed that they were not ready mentally.

With Iguodala and McGee - who had only 24 combined starts this season - on the floor, the Warriors shut down the Spurs' inside game.

The Spurs shot only 40% from the field, and were outrebounded 51-30. Golden State held Spurs forward LaMarcus Aldridge (23.1 points per game this season) to only 14 points, with two rebounds.

With San Antonio's playoff run expected to be brief, perhaps it's no surprise Popovich unleashed his best stuff so early. "I've been saying this since Steve got here - we're on the same page from a basketball standpoint". We've got to do better than we think we can do [to] even [the series].

During his postgame press conference with members of the media, Spurs longtime head coach Gregg Popovich had yet another classic interview when he was asked some pretty bland questions regarding the game. Saturday was the first day of postseason action, and these two were the first game on the schedule, tipping off at 3:00 p.m.

"I think you guys know over the last month or so our defence has been sub-par, so you can't win in this league in the playoffs unless you defend and we defended tonight".

The No. 7 seed Spurs did not stand much of a chance and certainly got "their [behinds] kicked", as Popovich put it at the beginning of the interview. What has to happen different to play him better? McGee had a lot to do with that.

"JaVale was great", Kerr said. "But I was mistaken. We'll have Danny grow four or five inches by Monday night, tell him to jump higher and move quicker, and we'll tell Kevin, 'Don't be so good'".
