What do you have to do different defensively against a guy like Dirk? Do you have to reach into a different bag of tricks against him?
You just can't leave him, I know that. You've got to know where he is at all times on the court. And he's different because he's 7-foot, he can shoot the lights out, but not only that, he makes tough plays. So the best thing to do is deny him the ball as much as you can. You really don't want him to touch it.
A big, tall 7-footer — is it possible to lose him?
When he's playing behind the three, sometimes it is. (Laughs.)
