Keith Smart done trying to make everyone happy
Smart breaks down the Kings' victory over Cleveland, and is happy with Thomas Robinson's progress.
When you struggle to try to get a win you know you just take when you get and I was his team did a good job tonight we gotta win. You know it is breathing room again and again -- -- about the work we did with some -- the himself. And it doesn't indicate with the score but I thought our traps on pick and -- this team play a lot of pick and roll game. Two very game and so the -- to work we did a couple days ago. Really helped us -- -- big guys out there did a great job. It was a nice track that we have to go. Obviously that you -- regardless side waves and -- they put a lot of pressure but I but I began a great job well. It broke down a little bit gave up two quick three at the end you could put the game away. Coach when kind of GT got the foul trouble there and count early and how much concern was that how did you like the -- you guys answer to the physical putting is really concerned -- I thought waited -- frogs had been playing really out of control. Hasn't been too much of a hurry. If he could just play and use his energy that would help that I did a good job came in. Obviously you don't want so when you do your players to be pretty consistent all year. To get out to a -- early and he can get him out of rhythm. But I thought the rest of the way that chance to manage himself and get back and -- it -- a great job but he -- great excellent job on the pick cartridges. Considering he was it out so which takes -- out -- aggression sometimes I put backs around the basket from office standpoint that he could finish with so many. It was a little reluctant because his father figure to ours. Felt. There's came in did a good job tonight you know I'm sure the rotation a little bit. Try to get -- close to a win that wanted very much wanted to. Tyreke Evans and market's going to have a big game got to get those two guys back into a little bit the game and a double -- -- -- Because you talk about Thomas Robinson to -- your game you know yeah he's he's a great job with his individual skill development. He comes in the morning goes through failed -- put it on the -- he. You gets on the floor go to his you know progression work on the floor. He doesn't have to practice. The only in his at all that we want to do you know Russia would in his that you're going to play. What you have already. A couple holes and he's been working on that -- really helped them so. I really have -- progress and -- hated you because there's no as a team that we bring what he brings you know from an athletic standpoint. Now you're seeing all the rough edges with him to know when the pass -- when you shoot when to move it up again ultimate key to go. I'm coach I know you're not a psychiatrist and you don't play well and he's hit. -- -- how confident are you in to Marcus that he. He knows he's he's going to be under a microscope for he just has to live through it is part of you worried that he's just gonna give up the -- mark. Man -- -- -- -- -- that's -- -- -- there he knows that everything he does is going to be. It's going to be viewed discussed talked about you know even one game we had he and as it was joking on the bench decently through -- how it did -- Always felt that's how -- coast -- you don't know things like that you know but I think when he plays and you can see in the heat of the battle how quickly. He got himself back to control. And that's growth for for him yet to be a negative so out of control real quickly to goalie didn't -- -- officially right way. He got to go to the -- get through this the situation this year and they keep more from there so I thought. And the way he's able to get himself out of control right away you know from the last time against Dallas. -- write what you saw him in help promote evil when he came down that it has played like a big -- Bulls played great. And sometime arms and legs and their singles are. And the right away he knew when he when he made contact he was trying to help it look so bad but I ever. The guys because of the way it looked. He was named to hear about okay. Coach -- scored sixteen points and fourteen minutes and are you with the -- getting healthier you that's not a problem where you get too many yards against us. That's it at Brooklyn and it was happen once in -- case -- to him back Francisco you -- is such a great job he's got route he can earn himself into the rotation. The other guys coming back to have that problem but I I look at the missions we try to win a basketball game. And whichever -- can make -- happen for us tonight -- those guys and now beyond. You know trying to please everybody so. And now but when we play we can win every game we can't. And which of -- and brain only and bring home course and that's how we go so that's where our team is right now. You would give your play well tonight played you know air coming back from you know he's wasn't there he was here and I went down just back from moving the flu. So you have -- what does -- a couple of days so we'll see where he's that obviously you get so regardless of -- Which what which was a help for us because when those guys went -- when injuries with some guys were deceptive play right -- Whereas now guys are getting healthy all one minutes you know is they all the to have that slow roll walk. To the bitch when you self doubt and it's it's really an -- turn this call the -- coach. You know. Food for you coach walk. But it's lol crawls -- this -- would you be so you know.
