Sign it's been a fast-paced, intense game: CP3 calls time out, drops ball and says "Whooh. S---" as he huffs and puffs.

Pop not amused by Chalmers' crazy shot
NBA 

The Heat's Mario Chalmers hit a buzzer beater at halftime versus the Spurs, and San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich had the most Gregg Popovich-esque reaction you can imagine. But it's probably better than a between-quarters interview, right, Pop?

Duncan deflects attention from it, but he does what Olajuwan does by working w/younger bigs in summer. Whiteside would be great understudy.

Kawhi Leonard is a beast if he didn't play for the Spurs he could average 25 and he defends probably doesn't get the credit he deserve
