Suns’ Dragic Credits New-Style Practices
With management’s call for upgraded “accountability and discipline” quickly insinuated into Suns practices, (Goran) Dragic did his best to walk the moratorium on idle talk against the Clippers.
To become more accountable during games, practice has reached a more businesslike level that goes beyond focus.
“We’re running more,” Dragic said, referring to Hunter’s emphasis on transitioning from defense to offense through the use of specific drills. “The focus is higher now in practice. Before, after drills there would be a minute or two before the next drill with a lot of standing around. But now we go from one drill right to the next so our tempo in practice can be like we want in games.”
