Emmanuel Mudiay’s reaction to Gregg Popovich getting tossed was tremendous


Gregg Popovich became enraged in the second quarter of Thursday’s Nuggets-Spurs game. The Spurs head coach berated the officials for what he thought was a poor call, to the point where he was ejected from the game.

Nuggets point guard Emmanuel Mudiay got an up-close look as Popovich hollered. Just as the official in the frame below tossed Popovich, Mudiay mimicked the official’s you’re-out-of-here motion.

That’s tremendous.

The Spurs held a one-point lead at halftime. We’ll see what Denver, which is going for its fourth straight win, can do in the second half.
