1. Start strong. We may have won game 1, but we started poorly, we started poorly in game 2 as well. We can't expect to win games if we start every game with turnovers and fouls.
2. Defend. We're one of the top 5 defensive teams in the league, last game we looked like the worst in the league. That can't happen again, our defense is what got us here, it feeds into our offense and without it, we're not even a playoff caliber team.
3. Beat the trap.
