Shaw said Faried's energy and rebounding - the two things that "no matter what, he has to bring," the coach said - were lacking in the loss. The 25-year-old appears to be a cornerstone of the franchise, signed to a four-year extension this fall, but he also was the subject of trade rumors last season and benching last season, with defensive lapses at the root. Faried said he still is unsure of exactly what Shaw expects from him on a nightly basis.
"No, not exactly," he said. "I understand just playing defense, doing the little things, boxing out, rebounding. But coach is going to do what he needs to ... to help us (win)."
