It's been up and down, up and down. I know we can do it. . . . We've done a lot of talking, we've made a lot of excuses. It's just about doing it.

We desperately need the win. We've been an up and down team all year. I know we cane [stay consistent]. We have made a lot of excuses. Tonight we kept playing hard and stayed aggressive. We still have a lot to improve on the last five games and hopefully have momentum heading into the playoffs.
He hit a tough shot. I actually thought I fouled him a little. I don't think it should have came down to that.
He's getting healthy, that's what it is. His attitude has always been great, he's always been a leader. He's getting back to his All-Star caliber game. Everybody knew when he got healthy he'd be playing like this. We're just happy to have him back.
