We saw little change in them after the collapse in Game 1. Game 2 had the same players on the ice. At some point a coach has to figure out ways to motivate and get the buy-in. It won’t happen for every player, but shoot should be enough to win a game. You’d also think they’d adjust the game plan. Coop over and over would just put it back on the players (though he’d say “we”) that they weren’t executing their game plan or doing all the little details.
