Luka Doncic on Facing Box-And-One Defenses & Loss vs. Toronto: “I Don’t Like Losing. It’s Terrible”
Luka Doncic spoke to media following loss to Toronto Raptors.
Luka spoke on trying to adjust to the Raptors defense during the game.
“What can I say, everytime I drive the ball, I saw like 4 people in the paint. I think that’s why I only shot 11 shots. They play box-and-one, they keep doubling me, so I think that’s why I took 11 shots and tried to get people involved.”
Luka also spoke on breaking the Mavericks losing streak.
“The mentality is that we gotta win the game. I don’t like losing – it’s terrible, it just feels bad. When we’re on the 4 game winning streak, everybody felt great, the locker room felt happy. We gotta go back to that, and just enjoy playing basketball”, he finished.
Finishing the interview, Luka discussed his offense approach and things to work on going forward.
“Obviously you can learn a lot with videos, obviously with the film. But I think I handled it well. Everytime I went into the paint I tried to look to outside pass, and I think just the shots didn’t go in today. But we gotta work on that, the whole team.”
