Quote Of The Game
“It was good to be back out there for me. It has been a long six games just watching. I finally felt good enough to play and it felt good to be out there again. We were just a little sync today. That team was hot…a lot of guys shooting it well and playing well. Once they got it going it was tough to stop.” - Chauncey Billups
