Acknowledging problems in order to correct them

Clippers coach Mike Dunleavy on the importance of identifying problems so they can be corrected:

"The main thing is you have to acknowledge it. I mean, you're hearing what I'm saying and shaking your heads yes. If the players don't shake their heads yes, then that's a problem. If they don't acknowledge the fact that's an issue, you'll have a hard time solving it. If you're going to be stubborn about it, then you're going to have to pay the price as far as minutes. It's going to come down to playing time. There's going to be a consequence."
