2.16: GSW/UTA postgame -- Keith Smart
So there's a big -- for -- knowing that this team was desperate. They had to try and get a win and now and our guys fought through they were fatigued out from last night and they Favre -- reinstatement within themselves. -- just so -- pitch once again our starters our top players. The meanwhile gives our team best players and old -- just what do you keep force in this next was coming from this break. And I thought our guys have a very good job gave us and kept possession tied ball game at half. Which allowed us to have a little momentum going into the second. -- you -- yet you know we entity and it's a team that played last night. Back in. You know the rhythm as often as an action on the back to back him -- deal would affect. Apparently have -- mine is an all star break someone somewhere and while we Mohammed somewhere. But yet they found it and guys made some big plays that made a big driving layup that would want to play by Monta. -- made some big plays regularly is the list just went along at all for a team around guys is gonna be humble keep our head down keep work -- -- know -- not being you know start in this kind of performance that would. Validate him nobody -- coming you know we just a whole bunch of being that we had the organization to get -- We gotta give our team and organization in position to where we -- to -- that excuse and that's what we're trying to do it all he has to do was keep doing his job. Our team will grow and then we get our organization to ever. Position where now there's no question they'll give us an excuse why and what he's -- mr. Yeah movies do your thing to -- that we're. Yeah we knew what -- feel that they would have a long time so you know what's wrong with a lot of his shots that he was missing was just you know -- -- -- -- drives of going to the basket and he was moving the ball around little too much red and I just finished playing so those things that can be corrected pretty easily wasn't that he was small ones down on himself. It was little mind and show element and figure. Talked about. Standings and it isn't isn't exactly one. All you need is to game to be close. You keep the game close in the and -- won't make the play and even when he made a mistake he knew I look at it says up to him and he knew right away. But that's when you miss Jones -- -- holes. Game will be pretty well. Best home team gets out to a great start is pretty good. We got -- we have to grind it out scrap it and try to get a win and our best players making right plays at the right time maybe -- These -- -- -- -- season -- just didn't trust more contrasting I guess functioning in a unit now more so than. One guy here one guy we. You know Charlie Bell comes in next week when demonic guy and so around the -- as a player removed beautiful lob that helps. And now you can have underscore. Enough you can rail on the floor -- -- -- the -- the entire time in every now and then now you can -- This guy in there. Divided three minutes here maybe performance in the team back on the -- -- game. -- -- You live close. And oh yeah new you don't take a shot well limited -- who reportedly -- useful to you okay. Play that's what he has in him. Any you know -- tonight was like those -- -- just wasn't their form. And I couldn't stay in the game read the situation on the floor and down and made plays forcing you don't -- a lot of minutes. This year young point what point guard groin and a big play for us -- -- nice breakfast -- ready for our next game zone with the program. This thing that's not a regular. It's shooters they're just always goes never everything you know but but you don't work -- golf bag and he always does that does -- stay within -- game in the himself. And made the right. Because can. News with the Braves and -- you want to get satisfied. Yeah you know you give -- one and as well always say you've before -- on the first win in front of you play out because every game that you played so I personally don't you know who's gonna show up and be good we know we hope to be good our starters and -- -- we'll gather the bench. But you're going into the options and tremendous love to get look back to back travel. Desperate team need to win and pull it out on the heels of the Washington Post report that kind of suggests that. Judgment call this late to get us team's trip to the house. No responses there. Because anybody because of all the players colonialism -- Doesn't play well right now and and the guys that you didn't right now I don't know whose welcome back -- Most overlooked but I think you have a good feel. What we're trying to get accomplished and -- hope that ideally you can. There will be a guess as coach yesterday playing well but obviously you've got to give these guys a break -- they have an incredible job. To get us back disappointment. Valleys throughout the year. There for a year and now in position to win. -- -- fought and we thought if we didn't write things we can be excitement. But also break attempts -- grateful break and we'll just we'll be -- -- -- It was a goal for by a certain we're. I decided I wanted to have a seed playing the best. And what I was gonna happen from here because you can sit there in the beginning but you know what happened injuries. Guys it's will be playing well and I want to set a foundation. My foundation the -- foundation how he played how we operate. And the guys did that come along that we get everybody's playing well to be at the time we are right now. Is it means it's the only hole event here it's OK. Okay. I'm seeing them all and now. And but this group has just stayed with the playing field -- it's an art museums are policed themselves because they start to believe what. And it's. Just come alive and as president of the saving grace right now is that we had a couple guys ready reminders you know. Now you had you know at the end and so we get -- back then you keep moving out Charlie -- also. That's what's been -- to win these kind of games.
