“It’s been about three weeks since we played and we did have some rust early on.  We did get out and run early on and did some good things tonight. I liked how we shared the ball and moved the ball and I felt like our shot selection was really good.  I felt like our guys did a good job of playing for each other. I thought we did a good job of making the right reads…our turnovers were relatively low and some of those were in transition so you live with those.  Our practice squad does a tremendous job for us and they take a lot of pride in pushing the guys in the rotation.  The guys who have a lot of playing time were really happy for those who don’t always get that opportunity to play substantial minutes like they did tonight.”
