it's frustrating. You can be as enthusiastic as you want. That has nothing to
do with playing smart and getting the job done. When you come out, and Cashmere
and Deonta go out and combine for 3 of 17, that has nothing to do with
enthusiasm. We played until the end. The bottom line is: let's look at
things that really matter. We didn't get to the offensive glass. To me, that's
physicality. They made shots, they're at home. They played well, we didn't. Our guys had a great
week of practice, but you can't come in and give a team 83 points and expect to
"It's more technical (than effort). You can have all the effort you want, but if you're not technically blocking out the right way or setting a screen the right way ... Our big guys have got to rebound - whether that's effort or heart or toughness, call it whatever you want - or it does no good to play them. You might as well go with a smaller lineup."
