Here’s a sample of what the teams said after the game.
Coach Gregg Popovich:
“The starters needed some sort of message or infusion of something whatever. I thought the starting team in the third quarter made their point. They played. They competed.”
“He’s (Wembanyama) is receptive to any type of coaching. A really high IQ. He understands the game intuitively. You explain something to him and he understands it.”
“We probably had the worst first half so far and he (Popovich) wanted to change the lineup in the second half. We wanted to put players he can trust to give 100% on the court. I appreciate also that he put Jeremy (Sochan) in the starting lineup.”
“I liked to be coached. I like to be threatened and sent to the G League if I don’t play the right way. I don’t care. I like it when there are consequences to my mistakes.”
