Greg Popovich Cites Lack of Hustle as Reason for Loss
Popovich’s point was an obvious one. If the Spurs are to even the series tonight at New Orleans Arena against a Hornets team rapidly gaining confidence, it is going to take a better effort than they gave in Game 1.
“I thought they played harder than we did, and I thought they played smarter than we did,” Popovich said, recapping New Orleans’ 101-82 victory in Game 1.
The Spurs, to be sure, had problems unrelated to hustle, and Popovich can live with those. [MySanAntonio]
