Smart: We need to move the ball quicker
Keith Smart breaks down the Kings' 110-100 loss to the Dallas Mavericks, and was happy with the effort.
Look at the other they had -- know -- our guys about our guys did a great job of that tone was set for us play we had to make sure we keep this game and control. -- looks different when they've had twenty points and had time but I thought our guys have a good job. Where two guys back in from from being injured and now thought. Our team came back and look how we have been playing before we have so many guys go -- injuries but this get this group play well they did a good job he'll. Got the game close and it's a few little details of eternal about turn the ball over. And maybe some quick shots you know but that's what you get some time with a team -- learning to learn how to win and pulls -- quarters. It was a spurt by them in the first half when you cut. Well that's what happens when a team. A guy who's been sitting over there patiently waiting for an opportunity and -- right situation happen in the game. And he makes some big shots he made some big shots -- -- Brandan Wright BI had a chance to be would then Brent Wright and Golden State coaching him. And I'm so happy that he's playing well. The guy every year came in the camp was the best guy in camp they -- your children and I'm happy that he's get a chance to play. And you've been in a showcase his skills but -- those two guys came in and play with the right -- helped them at that time because I think we had him on the heels a little bit. And now pretty much -- down to their their primary guys. But some of the guys made some plays to help stricter -- -- -- little bit of course you have closers that come back in the game since you -- -- -- missed layup. He came back with a powerful dunk so he still has usually it. -- didn't I think he's very young man has grown I think he's trying to pass out of double teams he's learning that people are gonna draft him. He's doing very good job would move the ball out to double team it makes -- say that any young senate does but overall he's growing he's going. Great player and -- and now. He's learning how to be patient and look. The pitchers were -- to coming. That's why I like the fact I wanna keep this team understanding that winning experience this time of the year. Because some values that Willis as -- -- all the young guys out there and play I want them to learn. How to play in tough moments in this particular game because all -- either we're gonna play right now. Are fighting for playoff spot. They have to keep their best players on the floor so we gonna get some good action from those guys they have to make a decision to take -- the ball on the hand of how a player. Which helps us understand where the ball must go through double teams we get great -- film. To show our guys when they become really good India. And we've become a playoff team that this is going to help us because who have to filmed them understanding what they need to do to move on trips and things like. -- -- He was fresh I think ours are -- have been a very good job would keep his conditioning of to so we give -- games played -- -- be brought to the team what he always breaks you know -- -- this. That billion trips -- floor. He brought everything but you're still had a little rust on him for the most part but overall. He made our team look again like we had been playing before we had his injury and John Salmons injury so I'm very pleased that he came back and play. Because he gave our team the look that we had in what we strive for. We got back to a fast paced game a little bit more physical. Based on him and you know it's no secret when your best players -- back play. It seems like I've played better. I just gives us at -- know how. You know guys are you don't come -- game we have guys who have no I don't understand what they need to do. Can make some plays Jimmie you've got Jason your command -- second unit that's -- NBA champion six man here that knows how to play and make plays. That in a hurry. But I just -- that you know he did a good job attrition floor but I thought our guys did a good job with their main players and -- sometime -- -- players. In the -- in the game like this. -- -- To. Hear you what you know I think sometime when you put the suspect that earlier we were struggled from the line we got away from talking about it we just let the guys lead the moment and figure out -- -- home. Because they're all good free throw shooters. And we got to a measurable making folks doesn't think the more emphasis you put on that the more the players -- that you serves and look at your hand look at your feet we'll get your knees. And a guy get up there he has no idea who's talking too much -- history voices here and we want him to find his own voice and my his own rhythm to make his free throws. There and -- I think -- I gotta get him at that stage where he's gonna have to play -- force. And I thought starting game I need to have someone there they had know how to play against her sister was gonna float around on the floor allowed. You need almost a perimeter player of the big enough that he won't just shoot over them -- would it would it would -- But he has to start getting himself and I need to get him understanding how to play real time before how much do you help knowing your responsibility is still back to a great hybrid shooter. How much do you. Get to the basket when you kind of on penetration. Knowing that you've got to release from the basket and get back out -- issued because a good point guard Jason Kidd Jason Terry. They're gonna find dirt somewhere because he's wonderful program so I thought. Him being in that position -- roll this up he's gonna have to just who is about six games -- eighteen year and I share -- with him. That he may not start the game because of a matchup situation six -- two games where there's a hybrid for your chance guys in my life that. -- Kevin love the cap space for which you do three that he may not be faulted from the start of the game but yet worked himself into. Turnover. I thought early we get a good job you managed only eight at halftime. You know it it looks like different and -- -- 21 of the on that Paper you know what -- -- -- some critical moments we got it to four. Had a nice wide open drive to the basket and now we've lost a ball -- a little things like that late turnovers. When you know one's as we did a great job they who has seven stops and -- Cut the lead down and got a chance now to make a play and now it's possible people will penetrate we got to get these guys I have to get. Whole ball for 12 maybe 22 long. Move it one secondarily you probably don't have which one we just hold on a little bit too long.
