Since they lost, let Duncan have the credit

Badly handled by Popovich. I wish he HAD felt inclined to make history. If he didn't, he should have had a clear plan in place--and publicly understood--all along. It was certainly possible that he'd get ejected at some point this season. Why create confusion and a situation that may have been awkward for Hammon and Duncan?

Wouldn't the Official Scorer show who took over as coach ?

I'm wondering if that's what actually happened. They could just as easily have claimed afterwards that Becky was the one officially in charge. Would have made for a nice story given the scoreline at the time of the ejection.

Earlier in the game while the Spurs were still having the momentum, announcers said that Duncan would be the one with the responsibility to call coach's challenge and such, and by extension I assume he was also the one tasked to call timeouts. So I don't know who was in charge, but I'd say Duncan is certainly the one who lost the game by not calling a timeout to make readjustments after the Blazers had certainly made some to regain the momentum, and before that by wasting a timeout and two points with the ill-advised Coach's challenge. Though there was certainly no visible command structure during the game, so Hammon could have overriden him and called a much needed one herself.

Man, the WNBA has a serious lack of technicals, fights, ejections and flagrants. Laughing Given the nothing from which this ejection escalated, I'd say Becky Hammon's not going to have to wait long to get another shot. Real history would be made when she gets ejected herself. Laughing

Ejected for what? Beating up one of the refs?

If she ever plans to move to my part of the world, why not. It's common over here.

Pop gets ejected for arguing with the refs, Becky Hammon takes over the arguing with the refs job, and gets ejected for it. Crossed my mind when the first real situation worth ejecting over came later in the game when Duncan/Hammon had taken over, and wasted their Coach's challenge to boot. I remember screaming YOU NEED TO GO AND ARGUE THAT when Hammon was on screen, realizing afterwards how stupid would that be after you're already down a head coach. (Don't recall what for any longer). Laughing

It should be easier for an assistant to get techs if they wanted to, as they aren't allowed to walk up to the refs to argue anything at all, presumably unless they've taken over for the lead coach after the latter got ejected. But I don't imagine one will ever do that. Both Hammon and Duncan had too much composure. They didn't even dare to call a timeout to scream at their players.
