The San Antonio Spurs defeated the Miami Heat last night in a rematch of last year's finals, but there was another meeting of bitter rivals going on within the game: Gregg Popovich and Craig Sager.

The Spurs coach is infamous for his curt responses to sideline reporters questions, and so TNT decided last night to fight back, putting up stats showing average words per in-game interview, and later putting up his total for the night: a 24 word outburst that was inflated by his asking him to repeat a question.
