Collins continues to tweak


Today's morning practice was cut well short of it’s three-hour slotted time.

“I thought we got a lot of work done,” Doug Collins said. “Our guys cooled off (listening to visitor Reggie Miller) and once they cool off, that’s it. We had a really good morning.

"I didn’t sleep real well last night. I was just trying to figure it all out. I always say anywhere I go, the first week I’m there I have such angst because you look at the board as you’re drawing things up to have a plan about how you want to do things and then you do them and you like certain things, then you don’t because of how players are on the floor and where they are and maybe what you thought they were.

"So I’m constantly trying to tweak things so we made a few adjustments today that I think is really going to help us. Our defensive sequence was terrific. Great fundamentally today.”
