Nuggets close to making National Basketball Association history on short rest

Popovich ejected after just 63 seconds

An irate Popovich appeared to be upset over a non-foul call Wednesday night and was given a technical by official Mark Ayotte.

Asked what he thought of the incident after the game, Popovich remained tight-lipped.

To his credit, Popovich had a sense of humor about it, crashing Nuggets head coach Mike Malone's media scrum.

Maintaining a sense of humor about Wednesday's ordeal, Popovich jokingly interrupted Michael Malone's postgame presser after San Antonio's 113-85 loss to innocently ask the Nuggets coach about the ejection.

Popovich: "Are you serious?"

When Malone told him he was speaking about the new National Basketball Association record that had been set in the game, Popovich enquired about the nature of the record. That person must have hit somebody.

Then, Popovich headed for the exit. "I don't know what to say after that".

Nikola Jokic scored 20 (with 11 boards and nine assists) to lead six players in double-figures for the Nuggets, who improved to 52-26.

"But my guess is, like, (with) a short turnaround, you've got to have (a) quick mindset, lock in and just come out and play with a lot of energy". "It's tough coming into this place, especially on a back-to-back".

James Harden makes even hard shots look easy, as he shows in this quick five-play clip.

On a night that the Nuggets ended with a season-high 41 assists, it was evident that Denver was going to force themselves out of the slump that they have been in as of late.

"And it's still not enough", said White, who finished with five points.

The Spurs head coach came into the Pepsi Center and ruled the night as he gave some unbelievable quotes to reporters prior to the game in which he complimented both Malone as well as Jokic.
