Two movements. “Especially the way they are and the way they act. That’s why a lot of teams get kicked out. You score before the half, you score out of the locker room, and all of a sudden, a 10-3 game turns into a 24-3 in a heartbeat. You say, ‘What the hell happened?’ We should be fine. It means understanding a lot of situations and clearly getting better at those situations.
