Yeah. What was we've been Trevor have been talking about it a lot and over the last seven games it's been paying dividends forces to rip it. -- told our guys we also broke the world record with the elections you know so. We had I don't know what that number was now that we had a hundred inflections it felt like where it's at 27 term we could -- -- I mean we we. You know I didn't like our shots now that we got down the stretch but overall we have a lot of good shots in the just wouldn't -- -- and so we want a game -- team shot 51%. And the other team it's up 43%. That was happening to us early. Remember we were also a couple of days where exact opposite so when you get more possessions like that. You give yourself chance to win the game. And matured as a problem I thought -- -- some its mistakes that. Lunar New Year we can't make down the stretch games you know. -- idea of did you call a time I'll pass the ball so we couldn't advance it you know in the before the first overtime in those plays that. This can happen. But through all those mistakes. We still won the game. And so as a coach you take. You. No -- so we start walking vault floor. The temple change in the fourth quarter. You know it's funny they went small we went Smart you'd think -- temple would increase. We actually went the other way about the biggest mistake I made actually stood around the -- that long thought. In -- took a gamble and I actually thought that knows some times ago when some times about it and -- just ago when I just started. Tyler you know. You know -- him that normal rest you know two minutes before the war and let them its camera snaps and anticipated double time. But I thought that had an impact on him I don't disputed gang. To our guys like four minutes left Marco just because it was too late. As this was not a good decision and that this is gonna hurt us. Well yelled out though unfortunately we are. Taken off whenever you have 8 o'clock game entered the game off -- So now I've. Want that but that happens. Yeah I should they asked. In the second overtime of -- -- them. And you know really. I don't think he didn't want to. Answer apartment one of the cement. That I just let him out there. It was good just there at the trap and we just -- -- a box. He's good he's really strong and -- He makes typical shots that she is you know fatigue from the three. Arm is as tough got our our car was trying to. You know make it yet when you look at his numbers Stewart won four point -- -- percent now. I'm done -- -- -- Well I didn't think we we thought it was going to be able to do and then -- obviously when an overtime what's over time comes I don't think about it -- -- If there's no game the next day and I know they're they have the day off. So I don't given a lot of -- Yes it is and and the flight is how enemies that long but it's long there you know considering it's not a West Coast trip. You know we started our taxes. Swing today no print ballots at home now we're going to put more text. Yeah it is on a night to night basis and you look at we've had three days off or two days -- so you open yet something in the today at the end of the day. -- Just got to be careful. Then bottom line and we've done a great job this year -- on. Over all but I think would come over anybody. Yeah accused of effect for the next night or even two nights and evidence that. Yeah. Yeah yeah that's why. -- they're gonna sleep tonight. -- Yeah. Yeah I did at home in the garden of the second quarter we terrific defense led India second -- went. Six minutes five minutes -- up to score a bucket and less of the start and they scored five points and thirty seconds. So overall like I -- like our defense. In the fourth quarter and overtime that did and we are small. Our rotations. Those asking him to probably things and worked. -- -- -- You have heard how that helps you guys he's. Well we're just trying to. You know take out their guy you know instead of let them come all the picks like everybody does and who knows. In the past then you know Carson -- so where are released show or ice from the ropes and I think cigars just kind of got used to come off a string guys out the waiting game in the -- go in the attack government. We just decided let's not wait anymore. This is get it out of his hands is asking the bigs do a lot -- trapped in the three point line and then they have to run back in line and other big. But overall it's been good -- -- -- when they're trying to take advantage of it and couldn't are deflection. -- deficit and aggressive. You know -- -- -- -- we just gotta get a better used to defensively there's things he's got to do better. It's on us to make combat -- out on them and of -- were interred there. Yeah thank you for asking me. -- to -- when the trainer of the year last year he got to work this year. -- out so he couldn't get in at all it just drifted. Betty is probably the hardest working men in the league right now what are some of our guys are you that these there on the right so they're proud of him. Yeah I think if you've got all the turns in the league to write a book. That changed the names it would futuristic. --
