NBA playoffs – part 5

game #8 watched – Cleveland at Boston, game 6

Before the game, a wonderful example of what a coach needs to say to the team. Doc Rivers said,

“for 48 minutes, we got to do our jobs. We’re gonna win tonight because we understand that. We’re gonna win tonight because we understand that. For 48 minutes you got to focus, you got to sustain.”

I like the repeat of “We’re gonna win tonight”…reinforcing the belief in the players of the outcome…but why will they win? because they understand what their roles are.

Speaking of, I look forward to watching more of Davis, out there, hustling, taking on Shaq.

I wish there had been more ball movement (ala Phoenix )…but there were flashy moves by individuals. It did seem that Boston reacted as a team when on defense.

Hoping the Celtics can beat the Lakers.

(yeah…I know…I’m not watching the games in order…)
