They were the deeper team. That took its toll.
We lost a sense of urgency while guarding him.
We were very aggressive in every game that we played against them.
We want to have somebody in his face at all times, have a hand up.
I definitely didn't expect us to be in this position. Guys just have to be more conscious of the consequences of not playing hard and not boxing out.
They got a lot of easy second-chance opportunities. They had a size advantage on us. ... They kind of beat us around in the post.
We've had a chance game after game after game. I know I sound like a broken record, but it's true. As long as we continue to work hard in practice, everything will eventually take care of itself.
We just kept fighting. I was real optimistic. I just felt like something good was going to happen to our team.
That's what we hang our hat on. As long as we keep doing that well, we'll be all right.
If we can?t establish anything inside that gives perimeter players a reason to be more aggressive on the outside. I think they took advantage of that tonight they were all up in us the whole night.
We gave them too many wide-open opportunities. I don't think we were as intense as we needed to be on the defensive end.
It's very slim. It can come down to one or two possessions or maybe even a couple of seconds. You just have to be prepared for every situation in the game and right now, and I don't think we have that focus or that intensity that we need.
It's definitely a surprise (to lose so many close games), but one of the encouraging things is that we've been in every game, so all we have to do is learn how to stay focused for every crucial possession of the game. I think we'll be alright.
At first, it was like we still have a chance to turn the season around. I still feel that way, but we just don't have as many games to do that. The frustration builds every game.
It sounds like a broken record right now.
We definitely don't have a great number of scoring options on this team, and teams can kind of key in on a couple of guys.
When they were tipping the ball around, I definitely thought something bad was going to happen. The angels were on our side.
You just try to make him laugh or just try to do things to take his mind away from it, because you know that he's thinking about it, and we're thinking about. We rarely bring it up. We just try to take his mind off it and keep him happy.
We just waited too late to compete today. The bottom line is we're not getting the job done. We're not winning.
I know his tendencies, and I'm sure he knows my tendencies. We definitely play off of each other and feed off of each other's energy.
