Mavericks-Magic Postgame Locker Room Interviews
Once again the Orlando Magic dropped another close contest. At this point, there’s not many more ways a player can articulate the problems in falling short down the stretch on a consistent basis. Afflalo mentioned getting “pissed off” on a few occasions during his postgame chat. Tonight in the defeat against Dallas, defense was the main issue as well as coughing up too many fastbreak points and not coping well with Rick Carlisle’s zone defensive schemes.
Jameer Nelson: “It’s not on any one guy on this team; we’re in this all together. We have to come up with a solution together. I said it earlier, one thing we’re doing is sticking together. Nobody is separating nobody outside the box in terms of our team.”
Arron Afflalo: “Once we get really good offensive rhythm with each other and get back focused defensively, I think we’ll be better.”
Maurice Harkless: “I’ve just got to stay ready for whenever he (Coach Vaughn) decides to put me in.”
Nikola Vucevic: “I don’t think our defensive aggressiveness is as high as it was (in the beginning of the season).”
