Gregg Popovich hopes that his San Antonio Spurs will be able to play in less heated conditions in Game 2 of the NBA Finals Sunday 8pm ET.
The NBA Finals started in bizarre fashion Thursday as the air conditioning broke at the AT&T Center and caused endless problems for San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat players.
This led to arguably the best player in basketball going down injured because of severe back cramps. Quite an embarrassing injury it was for King James, and it was partly put down to the intense heat, which drenched fans and players in sweat.
"I think everyone got a little tired or a little dehydrated during the game that's for sure," Spurs' coach Popovich told the media.
"I'm sure both teams are going to be happy that we have a couple of days before the next game. And hopefully we can pay our bills by then."
Popovich is always funny during press conference because you never know what he will say. But to have to make comments likes this shows how embarrassing the situation was for the Spurs.
The Western Conference champions actually put out an official statement during the game saying that the air conditioning was broken and not turned off. Obviously Pop didn't get that message.
Roll on a colder Game 2.
