Sekou Smith compiles Mike Woodson's thoughts about what has been learned from the pre-season. Choice response on the subject of Zaza Pachulia:
“One of our main goals was to get him back programmed and ready to go. The biggest thing is Zaza accepting his role, whatever that is every night. And the bottom line is he knew that once we got into the playoffs he was instrumental to us winning the three games we won at home. And it’s not about playing 30 minutes every night. I think he understands he’s a big piece to our puzzle and we need him to win.”
Here's hoping he's right.
