'they killed us going to the hole. we did a poor, poor job of getting back on defense. did not get enough feet in the paint. just didn't stop the ball. they shot way too many easy shots, way to many easy shots. we didn't make them early, anything outside the paint. i don't know if we was tired or what. i mean, they're very athletic, they're good. we just did a poor job of defending.' back to you.
