How was the energy tonight different from the past few games?
“It just wasn’t enough. We just have to make that decision early on in the game, how much effort we need to give in order to be great in this league. That’s about it.”
What this game a step in the right direction?
“I mean, we know what we are capable of. We know what we are capable of. When we don’t play to that level we know it. There is no sugar coating it. We know the type of level we have to play at, it is just doing it consistently.”
What do you think the reason is for the four game losing streak?
“It’s part of the NBA season, you never know. I’ve been a part of two organizations, one where I was in Cleveland. In 2017, we’re down the stretch and we lose a bunch of games in a row. We end up sweeping the whole Eastern Conference. I don’t think anybody in the Eastern Conference could really compete with us at a high level when we’re playing the way we’re supposed to be playing.”
