Video: Monty Williams after practice

Monty Williams and the rest of the coaches conducted an 8 a.m. film session this morning after which the team ran through a few things in anticipations of tonight's game against the Timberwolves. A film session during summer league might sound like a strange thing to do, but as I previously mentioned, one of the goals of the coaching staff is to get the future roster players familiar with how things work during the NBA season. 23 turnovers in a game? You know you're going to watch film, probably early in the morning.

I should also note that Williams gave the team a bit of a talking to at the end of practice, reiterating that summer league is no joke. The gist was that the Blazers goal is to win an NBA championship and that more goes into accomplishing that than just what you see on the court during the regular season.
