San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich's not a big fan of being asked about "keys to the game." For the second consecutive contest, the uncompromising Popovich received the same question. Sunday, he was in top form. Monday was quote-of-the-year worthy.Popovich on Sunday, asked about 'keys to the game': You're kidding? … Score more points than them. Play hard. Come on. This is ridiculous.Popovich on Monday: Did you ask me that last night? Say whatever you want. It's transition D. It's making shots. Don't turn it over. It's all bull[crap]. Have more points than they do, that's the key. Just make it up and say I said it. I don't care. Brian T. SmithTwitter: @tribjazz
