The Spurs, after losing to the Bulls playing “… embarrassing basketball,” Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. “I want my money back.” The team came into the game against the Lakers with an attitude that carried over to the Bucks. Although the Bucks game had a bit of a learning curve to it.
“Actually, when they’re young and they’ve changed their team a bit, and their coach, it takes a little while to get used to it,” Duncan said. “We hadn’t seen them. It took a half to get used to what they were doing. And then when we did, we did a much better job; taking care of the ball, moving the ball and luckily we made some shots.”
