    Re: Terry (Rozier) saying the team lacked effort

    “I think I could agree for stretches of the game.  I think other stretches of the game we were brilliant.  I mean, we built the lead.  I think we were up 30 or almost up 30, or whatever it was.  We were playing hard then, I think for whatever reason. They got some easy buckets in transition, some easy dunks in the half-court and I think it kind of snowballed on us a little bit.  Definitely a frustrating loss.”

    How do you explain how you guys scored 74 in the first half and 38 in the second half’?

    “I think it was lack of stops defensively.  Them getting easy things and us walking the ball up the court, taking tough shots.  Like I said, it just kind of snowballs on you.  I mean, it’s the NBA it’s how it works.  They just played the Hornets and did the same thing.  They were down big and came back.  It’s a game of runs and unfortunately, we couldn’t stop theirs.”
