Just in: Jeff Cassar’s not happy.
And while that’s entirely obvious — as it should be — his strongly worded press conference delivered, at least, to Salt Lake Tribune reporter Chris Kamrani (as well as any other gathered media) is worth a listen.

We’ve now had losses to teams that are basically out of the playoffs, and that’s unacceptable. We have to do better. I think our players understand it, but now you have to execute it and actually do it. Doing it for 80 percent? We’ll pay the price for the 20 percent we’re making mistakes on.
85 percent of somebody ... and then they play 80 percent? It’s not good enough. Everyone of our players needs to be 100 percent and playing to 100 percent to be successful and go far in the playoffs.
There you have it.
But it’s hardly his only strong statement from the night — here’s one from his post-match TV interview.
