Sacramento, Calif. Less than two days after going into detail while bemoaning the Jazz's woeful pick-and-roll defense, Utah guard Deron Williams did not initially comment this morning when asked whether the team discussed the issue during a shootaround at Arco Arena.
He was then asked about the main key to successfully defending the pick-and-roll.
"We've just got to get stops, man," Williams said. "I'm not going to talk about pick-and-rolls anymore. We've just got to get stops."
Williams also would not go into detail when asked for an update about his injured right wrist.
"It's going to be sore for a while, man," said Williams, who put up extra shots following the shootaround. "You can keep asking me everyday. But it's going to be sore for a while."
