Coach Maurice – Able to battle back from the deficits early on but couldn’t do it later in the game. Gave up a few too many odd man rushes? Is there an adjustment period when you get your top six together for first time? Had it going so well before the All-Star break, what is wrong now? Is it good that they were able to get wins before break so they are still right there? Fact that they have been so resilient, is that something to lean on? Need to improve 5 on 5.

On not being able to come back – “We had a tough time getting that second shot…..we weren’t as quick as we needed to be.”
On pre/post All-Star difference in team – “Wasn’t that good before the break. It’s not as far off as you think here….it’s always feels more extreme than it is. It’s just not that extreme.”
On team’s resiliency – “We have to get back to the game that we need to play. There are pieces of our game that just aren’t really good right now but we will get back to it.”
