We know when we have to win and win games no matter who’s playing, but this is the NBA. And these people [Memphis Grizzlies] are experts just like us. ”

“We have to do a better job of taking on the challenge because, we know, when people are playing with the Los Angeles Lakers, they’re going to hit their best shot. We’ve known that since the beginning of the year. We understand that but we have to be able to own our things. ”
