|"(Reggie) gave us an opportunity to get out and run, push the ball. When you're not so much concerned about rebounding because he's cleaning up all the boards, you have more guys out on the fast break.
Usually in most cases, they're sending two guards back; if you've got one guy controlling the boards and everybody else is running, that's a 4-on-2. It's a disadvantage for the other team."
