Pissed Off Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich Blasts Zaza Pachulia For History Of Dirty Play

Yesterday, Spurs star Kawhi Leonard was forced to leave game 1 of the Western Conference finals after Warriors center Zaza Pachulia stepped under him while closing out on a jump shot and re-aggravated Leonard’s lingering ankle injury.

While speaking to the media today Spurs coach Gregg Popovich called out Pachulia for the “totally unnatural close out” on Leonard and ripped the Warriors center for his history of dirty play.

During the media scrum Popovich announced the team will be without Leonard in game of the WCF which probably dooms the Spurs in this series.
