Perkins: We Need to Trust Each Other

Oklahoma City center Kendrick Perkins, a champion with the Boston Celtics, was clear with his concern: These Thunder are taking the Finals for granted, refusing to match the Heat’s desperation and determination. Perkins knows he’s on the wrong side of a sharp, focused game plan and execution. When Derek Fisher is jacking a 3-pointer on the fast break in the fourth quarter – and shooting on three consecutive possessions – the Thunder need to re-evaluate everything.
“We’ve got to understand that over there in the locker room, there’s a team that really wants it,” Perkins grumbled. “They’ve got a couple guys over there who want this. … They want it. Nothing’s going to be given to us, we’ve got to go take it. We were just careless and sloppy. … We’ve got to know that we are in the Finals.
“We’ve got to trust each other. Tonight, we got back to ‘I’ basketball, the individual shooting over two and three people.”
