Quote Of The Game
“Other than the first quarter, I thought our defense was very good. I thought the guys were being very active, very long and talking defensively. It was one of those nights where we had to grind it out. I thought we did a good job when it was time to win the game. We tightened up the defense and obviously Amar’e (Stoudemire) made some big shots.” -- Mike D'Antoni
