“I don’t think I played well,” said Hill.
“I think once you get your stance in the game where you can get your feet up under you, your competitive drive starts to take over, you just want to compete,” Hill added. “Just play hard on the defensive end and let the offense take care of itself. The talk that I had with coach Rivers before the game is not trying to put too much pressure on me offensively. Just let the game come to me on both ends of the floor. At the same time just getting the rust off and let it take care of itself.”
Once Hill gets acclimated with the team and into a rhythm within the team’s system, he will be able to contribute more. “You could tell he was rusty, but he’s just so darn smart and he did so many little things. I’m very happy to have him, let me put it that way. He’s gonna really help us. Tonight, we were flat. We didn’t have a lot of juice, for whatever reason, and that happens, but I thought he was actually pretty good.”
Hill is here to help the team win in the playoffs and these final games before the postseason are going to be pretty helpful for him.
