“Listen, it’s me. I keep saying I gotta figure out a way to figure out the buttons with each individual. I’m just going to keep searching. I tell my coaches and I tell myself we got the right group. But we gotta act right all the time.”
Garnett called out the starting five for its lack of focus to begin the second half. Bradley scored the lone bucket for that group in the first 11 minutes.
“As starters, we gotta be more accountable and obviously start off not just the games but third quarters [better],” Garnett said. “We gotta come out and establish the game, who we are. We can’t start thirds like that. We can’t rely on [just bouncing back like last season]. This is a whole different group of guys. That’s the past. We’re dealing with the present here. If we’re sitting around waiting on that, then that’s a joke.”
