IFWT_Terry Mavs

There was an electrical failure in the A/C unit at the AT&T Center during game 1 of the NBA Finals.  The problem has since been fixed but there were conspiracy theories floating around that the Spurs had been practicing without AC and purposely tried to sabotage the Heat.  Most people were joking but Kings veteran guard Jason Terry hinted that Spurs coach Gregg Popovich was indeed responsible.

“Oh, no question. For an event of that magnitude, to say that the AT&T Center’s air-conditioning is not working — there’s definitely something wrong with that.”

The 36-year-old, who won an NBA championship with the Dallas Mavericks in 2011, gave examples in the past when he thought the Spurs had intentionally done things to the visiting team to throw them off balance before the game:

“You know what, Pop [Spurs coach Gregg Popovich] has done that so many times. I don’t know if it’s a conspiracy, but I’m telling you, going into San Antonio is a tough place to play…And I can remember very well one time where it was cold showers, there were about a thousand flies in the locker room. This year, there was a snake in the locker room. So, they’re going to pull out all the stops to get into your head. When you go to San Antonio, expect something like that. And Miami fell victim to it. “
