What creates the energy on a night-to-night basis?
“That’s us. You know, we’re out there playing. Brad (Stevens) and his coaching staff can only do so much for us. We got to do it. Especially on the road, the momentum for us isn’t there. We’re playing against the crowd, we have to be able to generate our own energy.”
What builds it on nights like tonight when you did have it?
“It was just one of those nights for us. We have to take from that and we have to keep going. We can’t detour from this. We can’t start going downhill the next game and the game after that. We have to keep exceling and going up from here.”
Do you think there was a shift to it coming back home to play?
“Definitely, it is a different feeling when you get back home to your home court, playing in front of your own fans and things like that. It is a little colder here than we might have liked it but it felt good to be back in this building.”
