  • You there I am here.

  • Yes, All right ahead.

  • Jeff, I guess, Becky, you don't walk into the arena expecting to coach, uh, you know, to take over tonight.

  • So what was kind of that moment?

  • Like, and I just feel like any other game at that point.

  • Yeah.

  • I mean, it's just trying to get the guys in the right spots trying to motivate him a little bit, Um, trying to execute the game plan and just carry out what we talked about, you know, in practice before.

  • So, uh, obviously ah, learning situation for all of us.

  • Um, but I would I would have loved to walked out of there with the wind with the guys.

  • How did you think the guys kind of responded?

  • I mean, obviously it z tall ask against against the Lakers.

  • Um, you know, if you're going to gamble with something, you know, you gotta gamble on them missing some shots because you know they're stars.

  • We're gonna be stars.

  • And I thought they got a great lift off of Wesley Matthews off the bench.

  • An N B A or major sports history?

  • No.

  • I mean, it's really just I'm just in the moment with the guys.

  • I mean, uh, trying to figure out what's the best way toe help them, um, and put them in spots to be successful.

  • Um, again, They're a tough team.

  • Obviously, they're the defending champs.

  • And I got, you know, two of the top five players in the world across there.

  • So and they made some tough shots.

  • I mean, you have to give them credit.

  • We kinda We executed our game plan decently.

  • I thought they got away from us in transition, but, um, the moment for me was just trying to come up with stuff to help us win the game.

  • Um, and they have a lot of time invested in me on building me on getting me better.

  • Um, honestly, in the moment, I was just trying to win the game.

  • I I say this a lot, but I try not to think about the huge picture and the huge aspect of it, because it can get overwhelming.

  • Um, it's my job to go in there and be focused for those guys and make sure that I'm helping them, uh, do the things that will help us win.

  • Um, I really have not had time to reflect.
