Livid Gregg Popovich restrained after being ejected in Spurs' loss

San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich, who has seen the Spurs struggle of late, lost his cool in a game against the Kings Sunday.

Popovich vehemently argued two calls early in the third quarter. When he walked out onto the floor to express his displeasure with official Tyler Ford, he picked up a technical foul and was ejected.

After his ejection, Popovich vented his anger at officials, and was restrained by Spurs star DeMar DeRozan.

The Spurs went on to lose, 113-106, their fourth loss in six games, and the team is only a half game ahead of the eighth-place Thunder in the playoff race.

Popovich had been ejected just once since 2017, according to Spurs fan site, and 19 times in his 23-season career.
