A man was just the one was supposed to go every single night, when I'm playing off of each other, you know, you missed my, you know, my life, etc. And I sure hope I do the same for men. I think, you know, just being down 20 Early in the game, you know, had to know, we had to be more involved in you know, getting things done. You know, it was a team effort. But you know, every single day, I think, you know, we're just getting better.
Yeah, yeah, they said the halftime says was a Debbie Downer, the specific adjustments you guys didn't make that, you guys
just being more physical. Man. Every one of the shots, I have time that we're shooting, like, then 60 or 65% from the field. You know, there was no physicality so, you know, just, you know, pressure and just be more physical
and make it a good against Paul George.
It was great. That's what he's been doing all season. That's what we need from them to take on those type of matchups. And on the offensive end, you know, whether it's rebound or not knock down wide open shots. That's what we've been doing. So like I said, in this you know, everybody needs to keep going that job.
Joelle that George recently said that he felt like teams were helping too early on for even dribble the ball, we're going to what did you see out of the way the Clippers were trying to W tonight? how that how that.
I mean, it was I wouldn't say it was easy, but I just knew, especially when they were small. I just knew they were coming, by the way. So you know, the way spacey works. And you know, we've been working on it for quite a while to make sure that we got the vise spacing. I just knew when my teammates were gonna be, you know, every single time. So you know, and I knew that we're gonna come by the way on the pass as soon as the ball was in the air. So I just knew, you know, what, go the ball, and one of my teammates, he makes my life easy.
For you and James, kind of do the best you guys have played so far, like, a short time, you
know, I've been we've had better games tonight, obviously, biggest his game and you know, Miss calling the ball. But I think we can still be way better. But, you know, I like what we got, you know, there's always room for improvement. And, you know, I like to take on the challenge. And I think we've still got a long way to go. When you look at
the entirety of this homestand Where do you feel like, where are the biggest areas that you feel like you guys have made progress.
We took our business home. We said why before, you know, we came in, we knew those games, these games were gonna be extremely important for our season. We knew we needed we needed to go on the run, especially with seven games on home. And a lot of days off, you know, in between, we took care of business. So it's all about you know, maintaining, you know, keep going and especially when we go to war.
What is this one specifically saying? Because, you know, beaten Detroit clippers completely different.
I mean, that's a good thing. Why do they got all the time in the war, you know, from starting fights, you guys coming off the bench, probably the fear which to come out of the west based on you know, what they have, and Kawhi you know, he's, I'm sure he's still on there Western nations, but he's been doing it for so many years. And you know, when you got a guy like that may have been played against him in the playoffs. He's a big time, especially in the playoffs, he just turns into freaking Michael Jordan. So when you got a guy like that, you got a good chance so far, she could go in, come back down. 20 whatever that was, as big time for us as your shows that, you know, we you know, we stayed together, we trust each other. You know, and we know what we have to do. We started up the game, you know, soft, especially defensively. And as soon as we turn it up, you know, he changed the whole game.
James talked about kind of the repetition you guys have done. Mainly just talking in practice. What are the things you guys talked about? Like I can do this? Timing, things like that Trump,
thank you depends from game to game, you look at a game tonight against an icon to offer both perspective because as far as, you know, tennis, playing drop, and also switching is all about the timing. I mean, you know, when zoo boss was there, I knew I could get that pocket pass every single time. And I knew if I wanted to post that was just going double all the time, but you know, the pocket pass midway jumper, that's my shot. So I'd rather have that than, you know, being done with Tim in a post and, you know, getting beat up down there. So we just knew, you know, I to execute. And then as soon as I got to the switching, I think what we've gotten better at is just a timing, you know, know, when, you know, you guess I saw, I get the ball, the elbow, I go to the pulse up there, you know, that's where we've gotten our dad, you know, just the timing, us working together, always talking. And he's been great, you know, been been on them about, you know, taking more cash and shooting. He's been doing that. So but like I said, we got a long way to go. You know, I'm not well, I need to be and I'm sure he's not but you know, as the season goes on, you know, just keep getting better and not and I think we all get the
similar situation getting the Lakers in the final minute of regulation. You guys were in a similar spot tonight. How do you feel like you guys improved in terms of executing imbalance and kind of staying composed?
Or it was way better? Oh, man, we, you know, we we walked that especially after that game, we walked on our press offense tonight, obviously, it was way better as far as you know, just executing it. Getting the ball in what is my hands on Jameson's hands and advancing the ball. I think we did a good job and that was a Laker game was a while still don't know, you know, got lucky with a mess free throws, but I think we did a better job tonight.
Just looking ahead to the road trip. Just what's the significance of time in New York on Christmas Day?
Man still got the gardening. You know, and Christmas in the garden? No, it's always fun. One of my favorites, awareness to play in. So it's gonna be fun, but he's all business. You gotta go. Same mindset. We only want seven game winning streak. So we need to keep that goal. We've been talking about, you know, we started the season I mentioned what it was first seed and you know, best defense in a league. I mean, we weren't there. We only know two losses behind, you know, Boston and Milwaukee. And, you know, they had hot stock. And you know, we've been missing guys all over the place. So it's kind of sad. We only you know, two losses behind them. So we just need to keep doing what we've been build defensively and offensively. Just guys, everybody's got to step up to that
point last year, where do you feel like you got how pleased are you with the progress you guys have made at this point?
I mean, I felt like he's overlooked but this far we've been doing our job. Everybody on the team as we follow what they need to do. Guys come back from injury everybody buying in? No, that's been a key. Just everybody buying in everybody being on the same page. Everybody just being physical. And my job obviously is to control everything and whether it's a protected Roman call our place. But that's all we need to keep going. We got a long way to go before actually being the best defense in the league. But being second is not that last one.
Game retiree was awarded the community assist award, someone who's wanting herself what does it mean to see the money at such a young age and also for doing a lot in the community while he was hurt still going out there and making a difference.
We talked we talked about it every single day. Man happiest kid ever. Hardest Working kid that you know, he cares about people. Happy for them. I've been in that situation and that's, you know, when you get a water for this type of stuff. I mean when you help people you don't do just to get recognition as far as me. You know, I just do it. Because you know, that's what that's what I like to do. Especially being in my position and I'm sure I feel the same. So getting with a nice home is great. But you know, just stay intact and we will not depend on it and you know, being heard and still you know taking the time to go now that same people and hanging out with people that healthy people this is big time
