With less than 30 seconds left in the game Saturday 7 between the San Antonio Spurs and Denver Nuggets, the Spurs was dragged by four with Denver holding the ball.
All logic basketball – and shouts Greg Popovich – noted that San Antonio should deal with this situation.
But it never happened. Popovic's pleas & # 39; To Marcus Aldridge They fell on deaf ears.
After the game, the coach briefly explained what had happened. "Of course he did not hear anyone, because he was not a fake," Popovich said.
For his part, said Aldridge, that's exactly what happened. "I did not hear him … I missed you, that's all," he said He told reporters Post-game.
In addition to the error, Aldridge was playing a subpar. The veteran shot 6-of-16 from the floor was minus -13 in 41 minutes. For comparison, DeMar DeMozan played 43 minutes and was plus -1.
