Gregg Popovich Leads San Antonio Spurs Against Minnesota Timberwolves at Home


  • Spurs Sports & Entertainment
The last time the Spurs and Timberwolves laced them up, Minnesota prevailed by a staggering 39 points, handing San Antonio one of the worst losses of the Gregg Popovich era. A pair of 30-point blowouts to the Rockets and Jazz soon followed, in a fall to forget for a Spurs franchise in flux.

The Timberwolves have faced plenty of turmoil of their own this season, culminating in a trade that added Robert Covington, Dario Saric and Jerryd Bayless to their roster.

After a successful six-game home stand, San Antonio faces another rough stretch in an unforgiving Western Conference. With ill-informed NBA pundits calling for the Spurs to tank, Coach Pop continues to lead his squad through uncharted territory, as he climbs the ladder in all-time coaching wins.
