After one of the most embarrassing second-half performances in recent memory, Maurice Cheeks called an immediate team meeting. There isn't much in the way of details yet, but early signs point to a productive conversation.
Coach Cheeks had this to say:
"When you lose a game like that you have a conversation and it took a little longer than I expected," Cheeks said. "I was trying to get insight from them. We'll talk a little bit more tomorrow."
Thanks for the details, Coach.
Greg Monroe said just a little bit more, but really not that much:
"It was a dialogue from both sides," Monroe said. "It was something I think we want to keep in-house. Both sides spoke. I think it was needed the way we were going right now. Sometimes you have to talk about stuff. You get in and work on things, but sometimes you need to talk about it as a group."
I don't have a lot more to offer than either of those two. This team played bad, and they should feel bad. Barring some significant rotation and/or roster changes, though, I'm skeptical how much good any number of team meetings are going to do.
At least it's not a locker room mutiny, I guess.
