Tom Thibodeau Wants More From Bench
“What we have to be careful of is everyone says, ‘You’re new, it’s the preseason,’” Thibodeau said. “Then, they say, ‘Okay, we’ll get it when we get to the regular season.’ Then you get to the regular season and you say we need a month. And then after that they say we need ‘till Christmas, and before you know it the season is over and you never get it.
“We can use that as an excuse or we can get the job done. The challenge in this league is how quick you can adapt to change. Some of these guys have been in the league a long time, are more than capable and are going to have to find a way to get it done.”
