DO NOT: Throw the ball off the backboard and dunk it, like JaVale McGee (pictured, right, with Saunders) did in last night's game.
Says Flip: "Maybe I'm too old-school, but save that for the All-Star Game. That right there is where we have to get to where we identify with meat and potato basketball. Playing hard, setting screens, playing the right way, and not highlight-type play. We've said this many times. We have some players that look for highlights instead of substance."
DO (but not proudly): Subsist on a Jared Fogle-endorsed diet.
Says Flip: "You can say it really kills you to lose, but until it really kills you? For me, for 3-4 weeks, I've been on a steady diet of Subway, which is 20 minutes from my condo, and I bring it back up to my apartment. Because like I said, you don't feel good about yourself. As a team, that's how it has to be. It has to really hurt a lot."
