Chris Finch on Anthony Edwards: 'I think just a little too much hero ball right now'

- by

Reporter: “Ant’s clutch time numbers have not been very good this year. What can he do better in the last 3, 4 minutes of games specifically on offense?” Finch: “Yeah, I think just a little too much hero ball right now. Keep making the right play, like when he was playing really well. I think he wants the ball, it’s a big moment for him. This is part of his growth curve. He’s had to share those moments with KAT or D-Lo in the last couple seasons, now they’re mostly his, but he’s just gotta keep making the right play and not forcing things that aren’t there.”

Chris Finch on what went wrong in tonight’s loss:
“We waited too long to get into this game. Defense was not very good in the first half, in particular… Typical, we looked rusty coming out of the break, for sure. But it was more about effort early on than anything else.” – 11:28 PM

Anthony Edwards when asked what he feels this team can bank on night-to-night:

Anthony Edwards: “If there’s anything I can change about the league to make it better? Just all the guys sitting, resting. That’s the only thing I probably don’t like… Just play, man.”…3:29 PM

Jon Krawczynski: Anthony Edwards said the goal for the final 21 games is to win 13. Why 13? “Because I feel like if we win 13, we’re going to win 15. We want to win 15, but if we win 13 or more it will be perfect.” -via Twitter @JonKrawczynski / February 24, 2023
Jon Krawczynski: Edwards: “Hopefully KAT will be back within those seven or eight (games). TP will be back and get the guys back and we’ll figure it out.” (Not immediately aware of a Taurean Prince injury, but we’ll see!) -via Twitter @JonKrawczynski / February 24, 2023
