|"When you have one of your key guys out, I think it motivates guys to really step up and play a little harder. Guys that really hadn’t been playing as much tend to come in and play big minutes and be successful.
That’s pretty much what it’s been: C.J. has been playing great. Tyshawn has been playing great. Those guys have really picked up the slack."
