“In the second half, we got it to 10 how many times, eight one time, and we would come down and turn the ball over three times in a row. That’s just sloppy basketball.”
Shake Milton, who got the start in place of the injured Seth Curry, led Philadelphia with 24 points and seven assists, but he also had three turnovers as it just seemed that the team did not have the right focus. “One of the things I think we’ve done well this year is we don’t just settle for 3s. You can tell where our focus or maybe even our legs were early because I think the first seven times we just caught and shot. I think we had five paint touches of drives in the first half. We usually have like 25. So it just told you where we were at tonight.”
Their ability to drive normally sets up a lot of their offense.
“There’s a couple of possessions where we just turned over losing the ball, kind of like the Cleveland game a little bit where it’s a little sloppy with just turnovers, unforced turnovers,” Green continued. “We’re not concerned, too worried. It’s a loss, we learned more from us losing than wins and I think we have an opportunity Saturday to bounce back. It is a very good ball club coming in.”
