We brought help [on LeBron] when we needed to. We tried to make him work for everything. He is a great player and he is going to get points. We did not want to give him breakaways and easy lay-ups at the basket. The only positive thing about [tonight’s game] is that we competed and played better. We are not satisfied coming out with the loss, but with the last couple of games we have played, we competed tonight and stayed in it and fought. That was positive.
