Carlisle: The benches stood up today,Doncic has extraordinary leadership
On August 20th, in a playoff game that ended today,The Lone Ranger beat the Clippers with 127-114,Tie the big score to 1-1.The Lone Ranger defender Luka Doncic was deeply troubled by fouls in this game.Received his fifth foul early.After the game,Rick Carlisle was interviewed by the media,And expressed his opinion.
Mentioned the performance of the team after Doncic left the field,Carlisle said:“Our substitute players played extremely well,Trey Burke and Seth Curry played very well,Boban Marianovich also made a huge contribution in his limited playing time.Our team has been running in for a long time,Even if Luca leaves,We also have ways to deal with it.Another very important point is,We are not only scoring,We also performed well on the defensive end.Deron Wright also played well,Although he didn’t get many points,But he is very influential on the defensive end,Continuously blocked the opponent’s attack,This also allows our own offense to be better played,I am happy for him.His contribution today is very important to our victory.”
When asked about Doncic’s foul,Carlisle stated:“This is really difficult.After he got the fourth foul,I only let him play for 6 minutes in the third quarter.During that time he had to rest.As a result, he received a fifth foul within the fourth quarter.Then he has to end again.He has been preparing to debut,Although he was frustrated with his foul,But when he returned to the field,He can continue to hit the basket,He also performed well on the defensive end.He showed strong leadership,I’m not saying that he can win triple-doubles.What I want to say is that a good player like him can constantly give his teammates confidence.He commanded the whole team,Lead the team to a final victory.”
Although this game was bothered by fouls,Doncic still performed well,He played 28 minutes,He scored 28 points, 8 rebounds and 7 assists on 8 of 17 shots.
