“It’s exciting, but it’s really early in the season,” said All-Star center Rudy Gobert, who had season highs of 29 points, 20 rebounds and three steals and also blocked three shots in the win. “Our goal is obviously to be one of the best teams in the league, but it’s really to be ready for the playoffs.”
“We’re trying to create our identity – getting up the floor, playing fast, defending, shooting 3s, getting in the paint,” Clarkson said. “The biggest thing we harp on is defensively. We’re trying to have no slack on that end.”
“We’ve figured out the style and pace and stuff that we want to play at,” Ingles said. “It’s just a really fun group to play with. We play for each other. There’s no egos involved. It’s not as unsalvageable as people think. It’s just a really cool group. Different guys step up at different times. We play the right way. We’re unselfish. We defend.
