Coach Gregg Popovich:

“It doesn’t have to be the Nuggets, but the good thing about playing the Nuggets is we get them two more times. If you get to play against the championship team, You see what it takes. Some things you can’t match. You can’t match the talent level that they have right now with the young team (Spurs), but you see what it takes for consistency, and we have the effort that is proud of where they played. We were really shaky in the first quarter.”

“It (losing) sucks. No one wants to lose this many games. We definitely saw this year go different but here we are. There’s no choice but to keep pushing and keep trying to get better. Stay in the gym and keep gelling together with this group. It’s no question that losing this much hurts and we’re not we’re not trying to get used to it.
