On Floyd

A few of you have commented on how Tim Floyd reacted after the game and wondered why.
I can tell you he was pretty upset with his team afterward based on the comments on the official quote sheet.
“It was not one of our better defensive efforts,” he said. “I thought we didn’t get back defensively for our perimeter players in defensive transition. We made some real mistakes as far as location and they made us pay for it.”
There was a timeout with about six minutes to go in the first half after Ryan Appleby hit a three-pointer when Floyd lit into Lodrick Stewart and Daniel Hackett.
“Defensive transition was the key,” Floyd said. “There was a timeout that we called about that. We needed guys to get back, rotate, run the floor and find a guy. We have been pretty good at it all year long, that is why we have been able to rob people, but we didn’t do a good job tonight.”
At another point, Floyd said simply that “we didn’t get into the game.”
Floyd was also obviously upset with the officiating.
