Gregg Popovich made the most colorful statement of the NBA Playoffs this postseason.  Well, if it wasn’t the most colorful statement, it was definitely the most repeatable statement.  “I want some nasty” was the fantastic phrase that Popovich used when the Spurs were trailing the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals.  The phrase was a big hit.  It was instantly printed on t-shirts and memorabilia.

The Spurs outscored the Thunder 39-27 in the 4th quarter en route to a 101-98 win on Sunday night.  The speech came at the perfect time.  San Antonio looked lethargic in the 3rd quarter against Oak City.  Popovich recognized that his team needed to wake up.  Manu Ginobili led the way down the stretch with some big buckets.  Ginobili scored 26 points on 9-of-14 shooting in 34 minutes.  Game 2 is Tuesday night at 9:00pm ET.  Pregame coverage begins at 8:00pm ET on 104.5 The Team, ESPN Radio.
