DAVID Fizdale, ladies and gentlemen.

The Memphis Grizzlies coach didn’t hold back after his team’s 96-82 loss to the San Antonio Spurs, blasting what he thought to be a ‘poorly officiated game’.

The rookie head coach has now coined the term, ‘take that for data!’, after pointing out the difference between the amount free throws each team took during the matchup.

The Grizzlies had 15 free throw attempts, compared to the Spurs’ 32, and Fizdale’s rant is sure to fire up his team as they return home for Game 3, trailing 2-0 in the series.

Fizdale is expected to be fined for his comments, but he made sure to earn it.
