San Antonio Spurs

How the heck did the SPURS have the biggest Game 7 brain fart?

The Spurs were on the verge of completing an unlikely 13-point comeback in Game 7 against the Nuggets on Saturday, but one huge blunder on the defensive end left them without a shot on the final possession of the game.

San Antonio trailed, 90-86, with 26 seconds left in the fourth quarter.

The Spurs let Jamal Murray dribble the clock down to a second, then hoist a three up at the buzzer.

San Antonio recovered the rebound with fewer than three seconds left on the game clock.

San Antonio is normally praised as being one of the best-coached teams in the NBA, and deservedly so: Popovich has long been revered as one of the best minds in all of basketball.

It was an entire Spurs team that should have realized there wasn’t enough time on the clock to get the ball back.
