Those photos come from his post-game press conference following a dreadful 2-5, eight-turnover performance in a brutal 103-100 overtime loss. There were also these quotes, via NBA.com's live stream:

On knowing he'll have to live with those turnovers: "It helps to make me feel terrible."

On bouncing back: "I have no clue how we're gonna be re-engergized. I'm devasted. There's no Game 8. We're gonna have to play our best game."

You have to feel for him.

Spurs fans are confident

I think Pop and the guys will give everything, right here, right now, not saving anything "for the swim back" of a Game 7. Historically the Spurs have been excellent in road Game 6's up 3-2 when the pundits thought their opponents were superior and would easily force a deciding game. It's almost as if the team that's down lowers their defenses a bit, expecting the Spurs to relax since they have a game in hand. Instead, this is the spot where we've always pounced. Going in to the series I predicted Spurs in six with wins in Games 1, 3, 5 and 6, and here's hoping the coin flips my way a sixth time. I've never wanted anything so much my entire life. I can't imagine caring about another game this much ever again. Just one more guys. Just. One. More.
