Tony Parker: ‘We always bounce back’
There was a small thought that maybe the loss could be a good thing for the Spurs. Something of a wake-up call, something to show them they bleed if they’re cut. (Gregg) Popovich isn’t buying that.
“Everybody wants to win every game. That’s what you try to do. You try to win,” he said. “Nobody wants to lose a game in the playoffs. You try to win every game.”
The Spurs have a high task though. They have to bounce back against a desperate, hungry Thunder team playing in their home arena, which has a well-deserved reputation. Winning in Oklahoma City is a challenge for anyone, much less against a Thunder team playing with some much-needed confidence.
“We always react pretty well after losses,” said Tony Parker. “We always bounce back. We have a great opportunity tomorrow and a great challenge.
“It’s our turn to see how we bounce back and react after a loss.”
