Spurs play better/worse depending on which side of the court coach Pop is on

A super interesting thing I noticed was how well the Spurs play based on which side of the court the coach is on.

Most teams/arenas put your coach on the offensive end first half/defesive end second half. The Spurs play well in this format

Spurs play poorly when coach pop is on the defensive end of the court first half and offesnive end of the court 2nd half

example Mdhjpmt_medium

here you see in the Nuggets loss that the Spurs are playing defense in the 1st quarter with Pop (actually pop wasn't there) closest to them. Pictured the Manimal dunking. in the 2nd half he will be closer to the offense.

Of the Spurs 12 losses. 10 of them were when coach Pop was coaching on the defensive side first half and offensive side 2nd half

Losses:

Spurs Clippers- reverse (defense 1st/offense 2nd)

Spurs Knicks- normal (offense 1st/defense 2nd)

Spurs Clippers-normal

Spurs Miami-reverse

Spurs Jazz-reverse

Spurs Portland-reverse

Spurs Thunder- reverse

Spurs Nuggets- reverse

Spurs Knicks-reverse

Spurs New Orleans-reverse

Spurs grizzlies- reverse

Spurs Pistons- reverse

last game Spurs Nets reverse but win

I found this extremely interesting/concerning about the Spurs. Just thought I'd share this with everyone
