- OG was saying the other day that he feels like he's really grown as a player over these last few weeks. Just the experience of having to read the game and having different defensive coverages and all of that, and, obviously, he's played really well over the last few weeks. Did you notice a difference? Like did he seem like a different player to you in the way that you guys were playing off of each other tonight?
PASCAL SIAKAM: Oh, nah, I think like OG, again, is just focused, like he's focused on everything, you know? He wants to play defense. Like he guards the best player. Like, I think for me, like that's just that, like that focus. I just always felt like OG was gifted. Like there's nothing out there that, like, he can't really do that.
It's just like he has the body. He has the physique. He has the athleticism that he can do that.
And I think that once for me, like I feel like he understood that, like, I can just really do this. Like I can really guard anybody, and I can really like use my body, like, and things like that, I think that's what's gonna continue to take him to that level-- And just like embracing that.
And sometimes, you know, you want to find yourself into the offense and like, how do I score? But like sometimes, just doing the little things gets you to score. Like it doesn't even-- sometimes it doesn't feel like it, but most of the time, you know, the basketball guys will just kind of reward you for just being, and playing, and playing the right way, and wanting to be the best in some other areas. And sometimes, it just fills up the other things. Like it just happens.
