Yes, dejection influenced her post-game comments after a very winnable 117-115 loss to a Lakers team without Anthony Davis on Friday night in Los Angeles.
But since those consecutive opening losses to the Atlanta Hawks and Indiana Pacers has changed a bit. You remember this. They were alarming. They were 30- and 40-point deficits and, quite frankly, a roll-over-and-die mentality that wasn’t good.
Even with a starter in Lauri Markkanen and two rotation players in Tomáš Satoranský and Chandler Hutchison, who take either COVID-19 positive tests or health and safety protocols, are the cops in seemingly every game.
A 12-point deficit for the Lakers with an 8-minute lead and a 7-point deficit Deficit 2:11 minutes ahead? Zach LaVine had the chance to win with a midfielder missing 4.7 seconds to go.
« What I’m most excited about because the first preseason game in Houston (Rockets) and then the game happened in Indiana and then the game in Atlanta, when we were beaten we just stopped. » And I think we got better in competition, ”said coach Billy Donovan. “And at least you have to start there.”
Here’s what’s good: Just as Donovan challenged the cops after those uncompetitive losses to show more fight, he challenges them at execution after the competitive part is resolved.
« When he talks about Billy specifically, he just brings a certain aura, a certain kind of mood that he has, » said Wendell Carter Jr. « Just the way he talks to us, his pre-game and half-time speeches and post-game speeches are all encouraging. He will tell you what you did wrong. At the same time he is an encouraging coach. And I think we all need that, especially if we have a very young team. «
» I think it shows that after some heavy losses we can get back on our feet instead of just giving up, « said LaVine. » Obviously our potential is showing. «
Donovan downplayed any honor and just said he hope that his approach gives a young team confidence. However, he cited a certain moment when a breakthrough could occur.
The day after the defeat by the Pacers, he showed a movie. There was one track where the Pacers put pressure on and the Bulls turned him three times in a row. A lead quickly turned into a deficit.
« Your bank is going crazy and our boys were totally defeated. And it was like the second quarter and I was amazed at the competitive spirit. You are playing against a different team. What do you expect? It won’t be easy and you will have to fight and that is competition, ”said Donovan. “The word to compete means to endure together. There was no perseverance, no resilience, no resistance. And I just kept talking to them about it and showing them. “
The next step is of course to close the games now. The cops did this against the Washington Wizards and Dallas Mavericks and Trail Blazers. In all of these games, they were challenged in the fourth quarter and played down the track to win.
Against the Golden State Warriors, Sacramento Kings and Lakers, the Bulls were able to win but didn’t make a single big game.
« That’s what great teams do. You come after and you never have to worry about it, and what you worry about is the execution, » Donovan said. « And here we have one more I think Long way to go. We need to develop better execution habits and habits of how to play.
« Like we fouled too much. I thought our defenses weren’t very good at containing basketball . I thought we were keeping our feet on fake guns. I thought offensively we were going to do well and all of a sudden we had some careless passes or careless possessions. You are not going to play perfectly and I am him don’t wait for us, but we can’t have the long stretches. «
If the difference between the first two games is any indication so far, expect that to change.
