San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich thinks in-game interviews are a complete waste of time.

He made that clear once again when his team trailed after the first quarter of Tuesday's game at the Miami Heat -- so the interviewer decided to switch the topic of conversation from sports to politics.

After Popovich provided his usual non-answers ("We're behind and they're ahead;" "They scored more than we did"), TNT reporter David Aldridge knew he had to shake things up in order to retain the coach's attention.

"You want election results?" Aldridge asked Popovich.

When Popovich was informed that Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump won Tuesday's New Hampshire Democratic and Republican primaries, respectively... well, let's just say it's a good bet Pop doesn't have any Trump or Sanders signs on his lawn.

But just as Sanders and Trump recovered from defeats in last week's Iowa caucuses to win in New Hampshire, Popovich's Spurs recovered to beat the Heat, 119-101.
