Fatigue showed tonight as it was our 3rd game in 4 days. Our shots were short and like I said we weren’t physical enough with them when we were on offense. They got up in our grill and we shied away from them. On defense we didn’t locate shooters well enough and they hit 10 triples which was the outcome of the game compared to our 3.”
