Coach Pop Pregame Media Availability - Spurs vs. Jazz

(On Tim Duncan working on his midrange shot…)
“It’s always better if people are shooting a good percentage no matter who it might be. It’s important. Exactly how important? I don’t know. Shooting is important.”

(On giving Aron Baynes more minutes in recent games…)
“Yes I am. I’m liking it. That’s why I’m playing him.”

(On not losing focus against a team with a losing record…)
“Focus is always a challenge. It doesn’t matter who you’re playing. It could be one play that you lose focus and let the game slip away, or it can be the evening. I think for the most part we respect the game enough that we respect every opponent. If we lose a game, it’s usually because the other team played better, not because we didn’t respect them.”
