Ime Udoka: "Let's raise our heads and go win away"

Ime Udoka (Boston Celtics coach, defeated by Golden State in Game 4 107-97) “Well done to them. They stepped up a notch defensively when it mattered. Our attack was not as precise as it should have been. Every time we had a 5 or 6 point lead, I feel like we made bad decisions, rushed through traffic, or stared at each other. others. We were focused on Steph Curry, but he had some crazy shots, even when we were defending on him. Nothing can be done about those. […] It’s in the tone of our season, especially the playoffs. Everything is difficult. We were tested against Milwaukee, against Miami. We have to do it again. The path would have been easier by winning tonight but that’s how it is. 2-2. We know we can do it. We have already done it. Let’s raise our heads and go win away”.

Jayson Tatum (23 points, 11 rebounds, 6 assists, 3 blocks, 6 loss of balls) “When I’m open, I have to take the shot. Every time I wait too long, they replace themselves. I need to make quicker decisions. I had too many bullet losses tonight. But we must pay tribute to them. They played well, made some big shots. There are a lot of things we would have liked to have done differently, especially in attack. We were too static at the end of the fourth quarter. But it’s my responsibility. I have to be better. I can influence the game other than by scoring but I have to be more precise in shooting, finish better in the basket. I can’t wait for Monday. Forget that defeat. Let’s learn from it by watching the video. We don’t make it difficult on purpose, I promise you. It’s not easy, but that’s kind of the beauty of an NBA Finals. »

Jaylen Brown (21 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists) “We need to be better organized. This is the role of our veteran players in these times. Sometimes we were a bit on top of each other and the spaces closed. This is where the bullet losses come from. We have to do a better job. Offensively, we don’t always take our time, we rush. We need to be calmer, better in control. Steph Curry is one of the best players in the world. He has already played in the final. It took place tonight (Friday). Great performance from him. But we need to contain it better. It’s hard but no one said it had to be easy. These opportunities, playing at the highest level on the biggest stage, are also an opportunity to learn. On nights like these, it’s hard to lose on your home turf. You have to have a short memory, prepare for the next game and play Celtic basketball. »
