"We don't have the experience nor the personnel to sort of get us in positions to climb ourselves out,'' said Garnett, who had 15 points and 13 rebounds. "We sometimes hang our hats on our youthfulness, and sometimes that's a disadvantage.''

"I don't think it's about our shooting. I think it's about pride, and that we don't have right now,'' said Marko Jaric, who went scoreless in 10 minutes. "We need to find it."
