And you never know when those things are going to come up.

“So if you don't have the right preparation and you haven't done all the things you need to do to play your very best, you're not going to be in the best position to make those plays when they do pop up.

"That's something we've been able to do in the past and I think that's something that this team needs to prove that they're capable of doing as well."
