Former Indiana Pacer turned TNT commentator Reggie Miller joined his former teammate, Warriors coach Mark Jackson in the locker room following their 92-88 win over the Nuggets to offer some words of wisdom AND a few choice words…
“You guys know how much I love this guy right here,” Miller said, wrapping his left arm around Jackson. “He’s meant so much to me, my career, my family. The way you guys play and the passion you guys play with, I can tell that not only has he had a huge impact and influence on you guys, but the love you guys show one another and the rest of the assistant coaches, and your owners, and your head coach, it shows out there on the court. Now, the last three minutes, I don’t know where that s— came from.”
Reggue concluded,“But congratulations, guys,” he concluded. “It’s going to be great next round.”
