調整試合。主力は20分前後の出場。

この際、勝敗は置いときましょう。最後のプレーも、ね。

ポッププレーオフの準備に必要なものが得られたか聞かれて

"Oh yeah, yeah. Everybody’s just trying to sharpen up as much as possible before the playoffs. There’s always some good, always some bad to work on."

"The playoffs are a lot more physical, and the aggressive team is gonna get the calls. If you’re not aggressive, you just fall by the wayside. They can’t call everything. So if you’re physical, it just works out better. If you’re just walking around and all of the sudden you hit somebody, it’s pretty noticeable."

"We’ve always only had one goal. That’s to be the best we can be by playoff time. We’ve never had any goals about winning games, or this, that or the other during the season; just try to keep improving and be the best you can be by the time the playoffs come. It’s never changed."

グリーンプレーオフに向けて

"A lot of times, you’re never really there mentally (satisfied). You’re never satisfied with it. There were times in the past where we knew. Like, we were clicking, we were playing pretty good basketball and we had a good shot. We still think we have a good shot. But we don’t think that we’re mentally ready. Our focus, I don’t think we feel like we’re there, like we’re where we want to be."

ミルズ

"I think we’re focusing on different ways, and I think that’s been our mindset the last couple of games. The playoffs are a different beast, and then we need to be able to adjust on the fly, and that’s what we’ve been doing, testing things out. Different adjustments throughout the game. Memphis especially is very physical. So we need to be ready if things change or the game plan changes. That’s what the playoffs are all about."

 
主力が全員揃ってプレーオフに出られること、特に不調に悩ませられている選手もいないこと。この2つが揃っているだけでも良い状態でプレーオフを迎えられると言ってもいいんじゃないでしょうか。

あとは1stラウンドでどれだけ勢いづけられるか、プレーオフを勝ち上がるにつれて更にチームが仕上がって強くなっていくのかが楽しみです。ポップが以前言ってたように、強いと思ってたチームがあっさり負ける場合もあれば、その逆もあるらしいので、ほんとに始まってみないと分かりませんけどね。

とりあえず最終戦はグリズリーズと同じディフェンシブチームのジャズなので、手応えを残してレギュラーシーズンを終えてもらいたいです。
