A majority of the violation tonight for the Lakers remained in shift. So we really did not make it challenging for them and simply make them do points in a half-court that established our defense and also put us in position to be successful. Few offensive rebounds went their means.

” I feel we’ve been speaking about this over this sort of stretch of simply doing the little things as well as once other groups do little things, come in as well as obtain offending rebounds and obtain additional shots, and also they’re mosting likely to make a run or more.”
