There is strong belief in the building from the players and coaches that they can take care of business tonight at home.

“There’s no wavering in the way we approach this game. There’s no wavering of any doubt,” said head Coach Jamahl Mosley.

“If you look at it as overwhelming, you’re not ready for it. I don’t think anyone here is overwhelmed by it. This what we’ve all worked for, this is what we wanted,” said Paolo Banchero.
