Messina said he learned yesterday Pop would be out, said Coach Boylen did scouting report with players this morning.

Jeff McDonald

Ok, seems like we've been here before: Kiki Vandewhege was technically born in Germany and was once interim coach of Nets.

Dan McCarney

More: "You stay focused on what you have to do. There is nothing else to think about."

Dan McCarney

Messina, how he feels about being first Italian, native Euro to head coach NBA game: "I was thinking what Pop would say."

Dan McCarney

Apropos of nothing, we call him Eddie. Short-hand for Ettore.

Paul Garcia

Some humor in Messina: "The only thing I should make sure I don’t do is call only plays for Manu (Ginobili).”

Dan McCarney

More Messina, asked if he felt more ready after coaching PS game: When I see Tim and Kawhi and everybody's back, I feel much more prepared.

Dan McCarney

Messina's got a little Pop to him. Q: How do you feel? A: Meaning...I'm terribly scared? I'm not scared at all? You pick.

Jeff McDonald

Got to inform Frank Vogel of Pop's absence. He offered well wishes, then joked he hopes Messina throws all Pop's stuff out the window.

Paul Garcia

Messina: “Pop had this minor medical procedure to do, so he won’t be here tonight, but he’ll be back soon.”

Paul Garcia

Want to say two years ago Pop was out on a West coast road trip and Coach Bud took the helm, difference today is Messina is European born.

Dan McCarney

Messina's got a good sense of humor. Oozes intelligence. Resume speaks for itself. Should be fun game or two before Pop returns.

Mike Monroe

Popovich, out tonight with'minor medical procedure' also may miss Friday's game vs. Kings, per #Spurs

Jeff McDonald

According to research out of Italy, Messina will be first European-born fella to coach in an NBA game.

Paul Garcia

Coach Messina says Cory Joseph is still out with ankle injury, Matt Bonner is ready to go though.

Mike Monroe

Gregg Popovich ('minor medical procedure') out for tonight's #spurs game; Ettore Messina to become 1st European-born to coach NBA game

Paul Garcia

"They're always free to make their comments with Pop, so I don't see why it will change." - Coach Messina on getting veteran players input.

Dan McCarney

Messina: It's a well oiled machine. This team has seen every situation.

Paul Garcia

"When I see a team with Kawhi in there, I feel ok." - Messina on if he's worried taking over coaching duties.

Dan McCarney

M: Obviously not what you want, but fortunately it's not serious. You just try not to mess it up. I'll try not to call every play for Manu.

Paul Garcia

Coach Messina will take over head coaching duties. Says Pop will be back soon. Pop had medical reasons for being out.

Jeff McDonald

History in the making: Ettore Messina will coach Spurs vs. Indy tonight. Popovich out with what team has termed a "medical issue."

Whatsoever Myles Turner did to Saint Francis tonight worked. 25 points, 10 rebounds, UT-record 11/12 shooting in 78-46 win.

Dan McCarney

Seems like just about every possession I've seen in this Pelicans game there's a NO player missing a lob opportunity with Davis.

Mike Finger

Myles Turner against Saint Francis isn't fair. Not even if they played in Assisi.

Jeff McDonald

Scola: "They've had so much success around here, they won't even remember who I am."

Jeff McDonald

Had a long(ish) talk with Luis Scola today, who says he'd be surprised if anybody in SA still cares he never got a chance to play for Spurs.

Kyle Anderson

Good basketball on all night!! Best time of the year.

No group likes voting on things (and then arguing about those votes) more than people who cover college football.

Mike Finger

Nope. RT @slmandel: Again, it makes no sense to whittle these awards fields down to 3 finalists when there's still 2 weeks of games left.

Dan McCarney

Spurs vs. Pacers tmw night: Bonner (sick), probable; Joseph (ankle), doubtful; Mills (shoulder surgery), out; Splitter (calf), out.

Paul Garcia

Maybe Pop will have an update tomorrow night. Who knows. RT @SouthOfZero83: .@Paul Garcia what tha EFF has happened to Splitter

Paul Garcia

The good news if you're a Spurs fan - Marco Belinelli is no longer on the injury report. One would assume he's ready for regular minutes now

Paul Garcia

Spurs' injury situation: Bonner (stomach virus), Joseph (sprained left ankle), Mills (right shoulder), and Splitter (tightness, right calf)

Paul Garcia

From Spurs: Matt Bonner listed as probable, Cory Joseph questionable, Patty Mills & Tiago Splitter will be out vs. Pacers WED.

I was going to say, before those huge-ass hands, but Leonard's mom said his mitts were the first thing she noticed.

Dan McCarney

Another fun Duncan fact: His 30.3 defensive rebound percentage is a career high. For comparison, Kareem was at 14.2 pct at 38.

Dan McCarney

Fun fact: Spurs finished third or better in defensive efficiency in each of Duncan's first 11 seasons, including five 1sts.

Dan McCarney

Really is a crime he's never won a DPOY in his career. About the one thing he's never done, through no fault of his own.

Dan McCarney

Duncan still ranking among the league's elite defenders, for the 18th year in a row.

Dan McCarney

Cannot stress how incredible that is at his age. For comparison, Kareem had already quit rebounding and defending for a couple of yrs at 38.

Dan McCarney

...among players who defend at least five attempts per game. Spurs roughly four points better on D when he's on court. (2/2)

Dan McCarney

Duncan's defensive numbers are just phenomenal so far. Fifth in def. rebound pct, seven in block pct. Seventh-lowest FG pct at rim... (1/2)

Paul Garcia

This year, Patterson says, UT will not lobby for the Texas Bowl over the Liberty, or vice versa. "Both are great bowls."

UT AD Patterson says no out-of-country football (Mexico? Europe? Dubai?) is likely before 2019. No currently scheduled games will move.
