They said it...

"I think where we’ve progressed the most is handling things when they don’t go great. I thought we played really well in the first half, you would think if you shoot 64 percent you feel really good. Then you shoot 55 percent in the second half and you feel really good but I think they brought it to a one point game. I think how we handled that, collectively, has been the best growth."
