  • So any such a pro?

  • And I guess we should Ah, that's what we expect from Malcolm.

  • Coach Vince go well from yellow sports right here.

  • When you look up and down this roster, so many guys that can dribble, pass and shoot is that kind of what you envision when you're looking at the rotation and how difficult is that for the teams to game plan and guard against.

  • We try and play away where they all feel like they can contribute and do things.

  • You wanted the guys to keep shooting to keep playing the way that you want them to play in the playoffs, though usually we see rotation shorten, we see more isolation basketball, and you haven't done that.

  • Does a game like tonight give you confidence that that approach is the right approach and can work in these big game.

  • I mean, you know, we're gonna lose some games, and we're gonna keep doing what we what we've been doing all year.
