especially novosel's comment after the game (paraphrasing), "we knew we had to come out in the second half with high intensity despite having the 20 point lead." in other words, don't sit on a lead to protect it. don't play not to lose. don't be 'ms. nice guy' before it's appropriate. play to win. keep doing what works. throttle back only when the outcome is assured and the game is irrefutably in hand.
