And Fizdale’s not going to stop demanding that his best players, Gasol included, be a bigger part of decision-making. He’s committed to building a strong, collaborative culture, similar to the one he saw thrive in Miami. “The culture is not going to be compromised. That’s just what it is. That is being put into place for longevity, the way we conduct ourselves, compete, the way we are as professionals, the way we treat each other and interact with each other, that’s a staple. It’s always being tested, especially in adversity, but that’s what culture is there for. The teams that don’t have a culture, they will break in moments like this. The teams that do, they weather this stuff, and they’re better on the back side for it. I’m expecting this team to be better on the back side for this.”

Jimmy Butler (12.0 ppg in this series) is dealing with a sore right wrist he refuses to discuss in addition to coming off of knee surgery. “Nobody really cares if you’re nicked up. If you put on that jersey and go out there and play, you’ve got to produce. You’ve got to do what they got you here to do. So 40, 50, 95, 100 [percent], I’m out there playing. Nobody cares if I’m nicked up or not.”
