Gregg Popovich Ejected Against Portland Trail Blazers After Yelling at Referees

Tyler BrookeSenior Analyst IIDecember 26, 2016

San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich is known as a calm and reserved man who usually has very little to say.

But against the Portland Trail Blazers Friday night, it looked like Pop had more than a few words for the referees.

Watch as Popovich argues with multiple referees in the game, leading to not one, but two technical fouls. Coach Pop was then ejected and had to leave the game.

The Spurs entered the game with a 31-8 record and the top spot in the Western Conference standings.
