Grit, Grind N' Coach

"Late, we were a little bit off in what we were trying to do on the high pick just because we haven't been there together," Stevens said.

We're not practicing, so we've got to get better on the fly as we're thinking about it."

Start Your Morning off Wit... Better late than never, RIP Anthony Mason
