I don't really see it that way


We had a huge lead in the 2nd half when they started pressing hard. We sped up and attacked it, yes. But what we should have done is slowed it down and run clock. Instead, they got us sped up when we should have slowed down, and we blew that game like I've never seen us blow a game before. I was at mid court, 2nd row. Brutal. I kept yelling to pull the ball back and run clock, but they kept running and running and missing layup after layup.

Attacking the press in the first half or if we were in a close game or behind is one thing. But they WANTED us to speed up in the 2nd half, down so much. And it worked.
