Following the tragedy at the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs Sunday morning, San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich had little to say in a post-game interview.

The Spurs may have beat the Phoenix Suns 112 to 95, but Popovich remained somber when speaking to reporters following the game. Instead of commenting on the team's accomplishments or the outcome of the game, Coach Pop took the moment to shed light on the day's tragedy.

He had this to share with reporters at the AT&T Center:
"We won a basketball game, but considering what's going on today it's pretty meaningless. When you think about the tragedy those families are suffering, it's just inconceivable and impossible to put your head around. So I think talking about basketball tonight is probably pretty inappropriate."
He told reporters to have a good night before walking behind closed doors.

Before the game, all those in attendance at the game took a moment of silence out of respect to the victims and their families.
