“I was missing shots earlier in the game and my teammates told me, ‘Keep shooting. That’s what shooters do.’ They were finding me and I was getting open looks and doing what I was supposed to do and knocking them down. I’m thankful for my teammates for getting me in a position to make an open shot and I knocked it down.”
