TRUST THE PROCESS

At the start of every basketball season we hear a new word or phrase used by a coach or even the players.

Trust the Process” has been a popular one this Fall.

New York Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek is in…

It may be a slower process, but our guys are working hard to do the best we can. You got to find the combination. Brett Brown has figured out a good way to do that. It’s hard as a coach because you want to win. You understand the process you have to go through.

You try to not sacrifice what you’re trying to do to build just to win some games. Obviously you want to win, but you have to find that balance. You can’t get frustrated. You got to keep the team going, and when teams are going through that process, it’s hard, but you got to stay positive.

MANU

I think it was Rudy Tomjanovich who said, “don’t ever underestimate the heart of a champion.”

How about our guy Manu Ginobili last night? Well this champ has a huge heart.

Against the Houston Rockets in Game 5, the “old man” came up with a huge defensive play on the game’s last possession.

He blocked James Harden’s potential game-tying three.

Spurs held on 110-107 to take a 3-2 lead as the series shifts to Houston.

Hats off to Manu – the guy came up big last night.

How about the Spurs “assists to turnovers” last night?

24 assists – only 7 turnovers.

Always play the right way.
