Did Nash agree with D'Antoni's decision to play just 7 guys in back-to-back games? Didn't sound like it: "We ...
just hit the wall -- ninth game in 14 days in seven cities. You could just kind of see the wheels fall off, expecially lately. With some guys being injured, we've been playing a seven-man rotation, and I think it caught up with us a little bit. Our legs just came undone."
D'Antoni defended his attempt to play only 7, including one of his trademark phrases: "What're you gonna do?"
He acknowledged fatigue, saying: "We didn't have the legs." But about not using Morris, Duhon, Sacre or Ebanks until garbage time, D'Antoni said: "It means they're not playing well enough to play."
