Gregg Popovich appeared to confirm he will return as head coach of the San Antonio Spurs next season.

"Why wouldn't I?" said Popovich after the Spurs' final game of the restart.

The Spurs went 5-3 in the bubble and were in contention for the play-in game until the last day.

"This is the best we've played all year. I really enjoyed it."

The Spurs had their 22-year playoff streak snapped this season.

Popovich will also coach the United States in the Olympics in 2021.
