Here’s a sample of what the teams said after the game courtesy of the Spurs.
“They did a great job,” Popovich said. “A lot of guys got minutes. Combinations were a little strange probably, but their competitiveness and execution here and there were great. Really proud of them. They deserve to enjoy their evening.”
“We were down some people. I’m proud of me and my team. Obviously, as one of the older guys I feel that could have done better,” Johnson said. “I feel like some shots that I missed or some turnovers that I made or some free throws that I missed, those things I usually make.”
“Just the experience. Being in those moments and learning from them, that’s really it,” Branham said. “Just next man up and being ready to play. We got a lot of injuries, unfortunately, but we got some great guys in there ready to step up.”
