Indiana Pacers head coach Rick Carlisle discussed the group’s lack of pressure following Tuesday’s 121-91 Eastern Conference Semifinal Game 5 road loss vs. the New York Knicks (NYK up 3-2).

(via Indiana Pacers):

“If we don’t get stops and rebounds, our game is not gonna look good. We’re not gonna be able to get the ball out, all of our playmakers are not gonna have opportunities to get the ball and attack. You take the ball out of the net, particularly after free throws and offensive rebounds, you’re climbing an uphill battle. They turned their pressure up tonight, and our pressure was virtually nonexistent. We failed on many levels, so we gotta make some serious adjustments for Game 6, and we need to get out of here and get home.”
