Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic (15) tries to pass to guard Jamal Murray (27) as he battles for position against San Antonio Spurs guard Patty Mills (8) in the second quarter at the Pepsi Center. Popovich shot out of his chair on the bench complaining, then called a timeout and continued to protest the non-call to official Mark Ayotte.

Popovich, though, made light of the situation after the game, interrupting Nuggets coach Michael Malone's press session with a sarcastic surprise.

Jamal Murray added 14 points and 11 assists for a Nuggets team that's now holding down the No. 2 seed in the West with four games remaining.

"You don't say!" Popovich said.

This is the second straight game in which he has been tossed.

Two of the Spurs' final three games of the season are on the road, with trips to Washington and Cleveland on Friday and Sunday, before a home game against the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday. With the win, the Nuggets record moves to 52-26, which puts them 1.5 games behind the Warriors for first place in the Western Conference.

"We were just talking about an National Basketball Association record that was set tonight, someone was thrown out in 63 seconds", Malone said to Popovich, which led the always animated coach to reply with sarcasm as he asked: "Are you serious?"

Popovich: "What was the record?"

"Someone got thrown out in 63 seconds", Malone responded.

Popovich: "Are you serious?" Somebody get hit tonight? In that instance, he charged onto the court to berate an official for an out-of-bounds call. "Somebody get cursed at or anything?"

"That's one of a kind right there", Malone said.
