That is the message from Waikato-Bay of Plenty Magic shooter Julianna Naoupu to her team for this weekend's ANZ Championship grand final.
Sunday's decider against the Melbourne Vixens in the Victorian capital will be Naoupu's first grand final experience and she is taking an all-out attitude into the clash.
"I've just got to go into that mindset that it is our last game and empty out the tank," she said.
This is Naoupu's second season with the Magic after three years with the Southern Steel and she is brimming with excitement about the possibility of winning a title.
"I'm just up and down like, ‘Woohoo we made grand final'," she said.
"It is another game, but it's the grand final, it'll be the last game that we'll be together as a team. So we've just got to go out there with the mindset that it's the grand final, but it's also what have we got to lose?
"If we can pull out everything we've got, empty our tanks, we should be sweet."
Naoupu had a tough time of it with her shooting in the preliminary final victory over the Northern Mystics but is ready to rectify that.
"The last quarter both Kayla [Cullen] and Anna [Harrison] came out to play and that's when she [Harrison] started getting into my head and I shot two from seven that last quarter and I was like ‘What the hell is going on'. But I guess, in saying that, I had to redeem myself and then came out with the over time and just slotted the shots."
Naoupu said it was good to know that she could pull finger when need be and the 22-year-old has a strong belief that her side can get the job done.
"I'm quietly confident that we've got this," she said. "I don't even think any of the teams have trained as hard as what we have this year. We've been smashed. Blood and sweat have been put into all the trainings."
Of her team's last match against the Vixens, which was a one-goal loss in round four, Naoupu said there were uncharacteristic mistakes made that day and that the Magic were quite a different team then to what they are now.
"I'm not too sure about the other girls, but that was a game that I just don't want to remember," she said. "We had it and then we lost it and we had simple mistakes like missing shots, and for me it's just one of those games where you don't want to reflect on it but you have to in order to make yourself better."
That involves noting what challenge the home side's defenders will pose, and Naoupu is aware of their danger.
"They've got Julie Corletto, she's amazing, then they've got Bianca [Chatfield] and Geva [Mentor] and those three, once you get ball to them, it's a massive confidence booster for their team. But I guess for us we've got to play our ball speed, use our agility, because, obviously they're taller than all of us.
"So we've just got to use what we've got."
If the Magic were to go all the way, Naoupu said it would be incredibly emotional.
"We've been aiming to get this far and it's just going to be so overwhelming if we are able to pull it off. The girls have been trying for the last five years."
