The San Antonio Spurs are one of the best teams in basketball and part of that can be owed to the fact that they’re so disciplined as a team. But even the most disciplined of teams have their blow ups and head coach Gregg Popovich certainly had one in Friday’s game.
Popovich blew up at the officials during the Spurs game against the Portland Trail Blazers and ended up getting two technical fouls called against him.
The scene wasn’t what you’d typically expect to see out of Popovich has he absolutely went bananas and lost his mind when trying to talk to the officials. Popovich had to be restrained and even then he was feisty enough to break free and come at the referees yet again.
Popovich was ejected and escorted off the court, and while the Spurs aren’t the type of team to have these kinds of fits, Popovich has earned the right to a few blowups now and again — but still, this was insane to see.
