Casspi: I Feel Like I’m Turning the Corner

I’m just trying to clear my head and play the game. I can’t control if [the shots] go in or out. I’m taking good shots, I’m not forcing them, I’m taking what the defense gives me. It’s hard on me. I’m trying to play like I know I can play, like I need to play. I just [have] to see that ball go in the net. I really feel like I’m turning the corner, that it’s right there and I feel like we are going to see it on the court.
