During the pre-season, Nick Cushing is trying to consolidate the team group but also to work tactically. It is the coach himself who confirms it:

"Tactical flexibility is really important for winning teams," he continues. “You can't do the same things over and over and expect to win. The preseason is a good time to work on that.

“There are some really good teams in this league, good coaches who will look at you and figure out how to play against you. We've seen that with some really tough games against Minnesota, San Jose and LA, three different teams.

“For us, the simple way our preseason is structured is: we start at a slower pace in the sense of developing the team, the demand and expectation we place on the players, the minutes they play in games, the expectation which I place on results and performance".
