Finally caught up with Rick Sund today. Here’s the transcript of the interview. . . .
Q. I haven’t talked to you since the end of the regular season. You did better in the playoffs but you did worst during the regular season . . .
I pretty much predicted that. I did a radio show and they brought that up that you pretty much said the team wouldn’t be as good during the regular season but better in the playoffs and that’s pretty much what we were.
Q. But do you look at regular season, where you had some blowout home losses and the offense and defense regressed and . . . .
I think other than–Oklahoma City and Chicago were the only two teams that didn’t have a lot of highs and lows during the season. Certainly LA did and Dallas did and Miami did. Your [media] colleagues had Spoelstra fired three times. So it’s been up and down and we fell right into that. We’ve been up and down. I’d like to think that helped us. I’m hoping that was one reason we were stoic during the playoffs.
