Original title: Popovich gives an ominous premonition! No roaring, no pause in advance, quiet like a curtain call
In the just-concluded tie-break, the Nuggets were almost reversed by their opponents when they led the Spurs by 17 points. They finally defeated the Spurs 90-86 in a thrilling way, so they could wait for the Blazers in Denver. In this game, the performance of Spurs coach Popovich is uncharacteristic, so that people feel a hint of ominous premonition, how can this father be quiet like a curtain call?
As everyone knows, Popovich is the most personal head coach in NBA history. His most iconic move is to roar at the referee on the sidelines. In the game, the Spurs led the Nuggets 19 points in the last 5 minutes, but when the referee's penalty is not good for the party, Popovich will go up and argue with the referee. Putting pressure on the referee is the "bad old man" who has been playing for decades. The whole league knows that he is actually acting, but he will always be fooled by his acting skills!
But the game is different, the old man changed his passion, and turned into a quiet man. Most of the time he was sitting quietly on the sidelines, at most, he stood up. Before the final half of the third quarter, the Spurs players had multiple physical conflicts with their opponents during the breakout process, but the referees did not whistles. foul. If you change to the previous game, whether or not the ball is fouled, Popovich has to rush to the front to find the referee roaring, but this picture has not appeared!
