Possession analysis


"Needless to say, we feel very, very fortunate. I thought we did some nice things at times. We shoot 55%, but we couldn’t get a defensive rebound, and they kept getting second shot opportunities.

"Three things that stood out to me as big plays in the game for us: Aaron Miles pulling up the one time and making the 12-footer, his only field goal of the game. His finger, as you know, was dislocated last Saturday. I thought that was a big basket for us, because it was a one- or two-point game at that time. Jeff Graves missed one inside and got his own rebound and put it back in to put us up six. And then I think when we turned it over trying to kill clock ­ we wanted to get a shot ­ and we turned it over there at the end, but Aaron running the guy down from behind and knocking it loose, at least gave us a chance to get our defense set so we could at least have a chance to guard them.

"Needless to say, we had a difficult time rebounding the ball. We got a six-point lead, and if I’m not mistaken, they shot and missed and then got it back and made a three. That’s when we go down and ran the clock and turned it over.

"Keith was important for us. Inside, we just didn’t get Nick Collison enough shots. If he’s 9-12, we’ve got to get him more shots. Hopefully we’ll get Kirk and few more shots, too. But Nick and Keith were big for us, and Keith made some big baskets, even though he’ll tell you himself he missed some easy ones. I feel very lucky. Very lucky.”
