You’re not supposed to win games when you shoot 41% from the foul line. Or when you miss a maddening number of peeps inside. Hustle, defensive toughness, and CS-SC from 3 point land were the difference tonight. JG, JC & TK also keys in a very physical game down low. Occasional flashes of brilliance mixed in with the usual inconsistency (tonight, the free throw line). But at least ball security has improved. I honestly think the talent is there to make a run down the stretch. But they have to continue to improve concentration and confidence.
