Audio: Gregg Popovich postgame interview

By Quixem Ramirez


Spurs coach Gregg Popovich trusted a lineup consisting of two former D-League players — James Anderson and Nando De Colo, who was recalled from Austin a day after his assignment — along with Gary Neal, Matt Bonner and Tiago Splitter.

San Antonio outscored the Bucks by 11 points in the final frame as the backups atoned for the injuries to Kawhi Leonard, Stephen Jackson, Danny Green and Patty Mills. The Spurs erased a six-point halftime deficit by the third quarter before putting the finishing touches in the fourth quarter.

Popovich talked about relying on his rotation, Tiago Splitter and more.
