Doyle chose to write to a narrative that was convenient for him. Watch the replay. While Val did talk about the players not being connected on passes and some defensive assignments, try to find an example throughout the game of one of our players NOT being helped up by a teammate, of the squad NOT huddling after a foul, of there NOT being a celebration of a big shot (albeit a rare occurrence last night). Again, watch the reply. Count how many assists we would have had if a handful of the open shots had gone down, and note how many errant passes were an attempt to set up a teammate. Our execution has been way off recently, but the angle being pushed that the guys don't care, don't try hard, and are selfish is just wrong. They have definitely lost some confidence in themselves. That happens when the ball doesn't go in the basket enough, and that poses a sizable psychological hurdle to jump over. We couldn't do it last night. That was what Val talked about in the press conference. The situation is/was far more nuanced than Doyle's article portrayed.
