I came from a team where everybody's competing and trying, doing the stuff that Coach is saying. We just totally are changing our rotations. We're not playing hard enough. I've just got to tell you, there's a lot of work in front of us. The positive thing is it can't be worse.

"It's frustrating. We're losing. We're not playing well defensively. We're practicing our defense and we're not carrying over to the game. It's frustrating. We've got to fight through it. We've got to test ourselves, our mental strength, our emotional commitment every day and try to bring it and not let it get to us."
Alvin Gentry:

I guess the most disappointing thing is, as I said to the guys, we spent so much time working on our defense and it just doesn't seem to be getting any better. I'm not real sure why because I think we play extremely well in practice and do a good job there. We just can't seem to take it from there to game situations. It's not anything we're going to stop doing. We're going to continue to work at it. It's a disappointing loss. It's not the end of our season. We still have to find a way to guard better. I keep coming in saying that but some kind of way we've got to get to the point where we're doing a better job defensively. To give up 55 percent shooting and 123 points to a team that's averaging 95, 96, is unacceptable. It doesn't matter how good we are offensively. We have to be able to do some things defensively if we're going to win games and if we're going to be able to make a run and get back into the playoff race. For us, we'll got back to to work tomorrow and we'll try to find a way to come up with some answers. That's why I'm here.

And according to a Suns beat writer (Paul Coro) on Twitter,

Suns practice lasted 2 hrs, 40 mins today. About 1 hr longer than norm. Hill called it the hardest defensive practice since he's been here.
