Coach Gregg Popovich:
“Good win on the road, long trip, back-to-back on the road. Down 11 (points) with five and a half to go, I got to be really by happy for them. Some good examples that the NBA, it is a 48-minute game and you keep playing. On a positive note, it’s a good example for them. Really pleased for them.”
“We just locked in. Became more aggressive. Those were the two things that helped us to get in the tight game and take the knee.”
“Playing as a team again. I think we were slow. My legs were heavy tonight. I could really feel the shift from all of my teammates, me included, in the fourth quarter and it really worked. Everyone was involved. Getting some stops. Jeremy (Sochan) had a big role.”
