David Robinson Interview Media Conference right after 2003 Finals game 4
San Antonio Spurs center David Robinson spoke with the media after the team's 2003 NBA finals game 4 loss in New Jersey to the Nets. With the loss, the series is now tied at two wins apiece.
Q: Was that about as physical a game as the Nets have played so far this series, and also, did the refs let them play that way a little more?
David Robinson: Yeah, it was a very physical game. You could say that. I think in the series, though, they played pretty physical. They have done a good job of that.
You know, the game has been about defense, about making stops. I think both teams have been very aggressive. We're obviously used to scoring a lot more points, getting the ball in the hole and they are doing a good job defensively. We obviously need to be a lot more effective. We are not going to win games if we get, you know, all of our best scorers scoring three points, going 1 for 9, that's not going to win games. We need to move that ball around, get a good balance scoring, get some of these guys involved in our offense, and just make shots. We had plenty of good looks tonight. Early on, we had a lot of good layups and stuff but we got blocked and didn't get in the basket and it makes it too hard. If you have good shots, you've got to knock them down and we didn't.
