Matt painter: obviously at the end of the game we were able to force some turnovers and i thought that was key and we were able to make our free throws so those two aspects allowed us to close the game out.
They get three possessions there and they get three good looks at it you know percentages are going to say that there are at least going to get one of them.
We wanted to pressure their guards bringing the ball up, and then they would have other guys bring the ball up i thought our guys did a good job of just maki it tough on them.
