"The NBA doesn't stop for us," said assistant Terry Porter, who is filling in for Adelman. "I wish I could make it stop and just twist the schedules a little bit. I don't want to stop seeing somebody but I just want to re-shift when we see them. Like OKC, we want to see them in March maybe."
"I'll have to talk to him," Porter said Thursday. "Everybody's frustrated, I think, with the whole situation and there's nothing wrong with that. From a competitive standpoint you want guys to be frustrated when they don't get a chance to play in the fourth quarter."
