"A team's defense is the foremost part of its overall game plan. Defense dictates tempo, it establishes the flow of a game. Defense triggers the offense. Victory is always within the reach of a strong defensive team. Good defense enables a team to overcome an occasional poor shooting night. A strong defensive team can come from behind to win. A team's personality is established through its defense. Defense, in a word, is dominant."
