"First of all, you have to take ownership. And to take ownership you have to play harder," Redick said after Tuesday's 105-90 loss to the Detroit Pistons. "We have to hold each other accountable to that. We’ll discuss it more. As a group we just need to play harder, and that’s mainly on the defensive end. We’ve harped on it for a few weeks and we keep having issues on that end. It’s not the schemes; it’s doing everything harder and trusting one another."
Thursday's game starts at 7:00 pm on FS Florida.
