Coach Pop Pregame Media Availability - Spurs vs. Timberwolves

(When asked what is the most important thing to “get back” before the playoffs begin…)

“We’ve had a struggling month, but we are who we are so to speak; as trite as that sounds. We’re not going to be very different between now and Sunday. We’ll be who we are on Sunday, as opposed to who we are today.”

(When asked where does three point defense come in, because it has dropped off as of late…)

“We’re concerned about it because we were doing so well in that regard. You just mentioned that April has been a tough month and we haven’t played very well.”

(When asked if Manu Ginobili has had a chance to run up and down in practice…)

“Well there hasn’t been any practices. There hasn’t been any opportunity for that. Manu has been working hard in the weight room doing his rehab. He has been doing his one-on-one with different people. He’s progressing. He’ll play a couple of minutes tonight probably. Just to throw him out there and see how he feels.”

(When asked if it feels good to get the regular season over with…)

“There’s not a team in the playoffs that isn’t happy to start the playoffs. It’s a long season so sure. The excitement will start to grow tomorrow for everybody.”
