(A) total team effort tonight. We played like a totally different team. Kobe is an awesome player. He makes shots, gets fouls, fun to watch. He may have got 41 but we got the win.

He had a long game last night, and I think he showed he was a little tired in the second half.

They executed their offense real well. We were in the game into the fourth quarter, but they hit some big shots at the end of the game.

I was just trying to deny him the ball and keep him on the outside.

He's been on a mission.

It really got me motivated when Nate got kicked out. Because we was getting cheated, man. I ain't going to get into it with the refs, they were good to me in the second half, but that kind of got us loose and started us playing well.

I just came out there and played. It felt good to get a win before Christmas. My offense was feeling good, so I just took the scoring over for us today.

Zach was unbelievable. That's why he's got all those millions. He just has to be consistent.

It's hard when you try to gout out there and play well every night and your season's just went down a hill from the beginning.
