Kidd on the players-only practice

From all accounts, the players-only practice yesterday was well received. The spirited session without the coaching staff came on the eve of the biggest game of the season. What was the message?

“For us to get together to talk about some different things that we need to do in this series to have some success and to get some work to get better,” Jason Kidd said. “I thought everything yesterday went well, so we’ll see how it goes tonight.”

So what’s the mindset going into the first elimination game of the series?

“The biggest thing is to act as if it’s Game 7,” Kidd added. “This is it. You’ve got to have your best performance from here on out if you want to have any way to get this thing back to Dallas and continue the series. We have to come out relaxed, get off to a good start and play for 48 minutes. And if we can do that, hopefully we can have more points than those guys.”
