Minnesota Timberwolves Rumors
“If we are going to play (big), we’ve got to dominate in the paint,” Austin Rivers said after the 137-114 loss. “If we’re going to play big, we’ve got to be big. Their big man was Draymond today. If we’re going to continue to play that way, we’ve got to find ways to get better at it. It’s early, but at the same time, it’s not. It’s getting to the point where a lot of games are coming by now, so we’ll just continue getting better.”
“If we’re big, we’ve got to dominate the glass, we should dominate blocking shots, guys should have trouble getting into our paint, but we’re not getting that right now,” Rivers said. “I think defensively is our biggest thing right now.”
