Let teammates know where you stand, which can effectively avoid too many defensive problems."

Whether it is 20 or 30 points behind, they will initiate. Counterattack and fight into the round. We can't get too excited about this (2-0 lead). The opponent lacks two key scorers, but they will always have the mentality of the next person to come forward. They play every game. Very tough and hardworking, they are aggressive. Our mentality today is that this is a game that must be won, and we will maintain this mentality in the next game. We know the abilities of our opponents. They have four to five places. Players can score 15+ and there are people on the bench who can stand up. We must stay focused on the defensive end and be full of respect for the opponent."
