Spurs coach Gregg Popovich praised second-year point guard Dejounte Murray for the leadership he showed seconds after teammate LaMarcus Aldridge’s altercation Monday night with Toronto’s Serge Ibaka. Murray pulled Aldridge aside after the dust up to offer some calming words. As Popovich moved in their direction, Murray gestured to the coach that he would handle the situation. “I thought that was really pretty wonderful leadership for a young guy like that who is just finding his way to go ahead and calm him down like that,” Popovich said after shootaround Wednesday morning. “I was actually going over and he kind of waved me away like, “I got this. I’m OK. I don’t need you over here.’ “It was pretty cool.”
Spurs coach Gregg Popovich didn’t rule out the possibility of injured All-NBA forward Kawhi Leonard returning to the court during the Spurs’ six-game homestand that begins Nov. 2 against Golden State and ends against Chicago on Nov. 11. “Sure, anything is possible,” Popovich said after shootaround Wednesday morning. “But I don’t spend a lot of time thinking about when somebody is going to come back. Because they are going to come back when they are ready, when the docs say they are ready. So when that happens, that happens.”
