We doubled their turnovers...
That's the ball game.
The 9 turnover gap equates to about 9 points - Should have never come to missed shots and Rondo's slip at the end of regulation/OT. We held then under 38% shooting, and still lost.
Execution matters, and we still have a ways to go on both ends of the floor to meet the standards we have set when we have played well during the past few years, though the defense has been better recently.
FWIW, though Terry had a horrid shooting night, and Lee whiffed from the corner, neither of them had one of our 18 turnovers last night.
