Is being an unfinished product apply to personnel, too? Does that have to change? “You mean like new players? I don’t think so, but as always, that’s up to the front office. They’re going to seek opportunities to make the team better. They always do that; that’s what every team in the league does. I think we’ve got enough. Our problems aren’t usually personnel based, it’s lack of consistency. We’re capable of playing at a high level. The key is to be able to do that for longer stretches.”
Is there internal discussion of the pressure of getting back to the NBA Finals? “All that stuff is really for other people to talk about. The pressure that we talk about is what the pressure is going to be like in those games, how hard it’s going to win in those games in those moments … to beat these teams four times. We’ve been in enough playoff games to know what that pressure cooker’s like and how hard it is, to where your habits come into play. Who you’ve been in the season that’s who you are in those moments, in those tough games. That’s really what our focus is on. We don’t care what other people think, but we do know that’s coming. That is high pressure and that’s the fun part — that’s when we want to be able to play our best basketball.”
