Quote Of The Game
“It was a very important game and even more important that we’re playing well going into the postseason. I think we moved the ball better and defensively we have been improving. We’re starting to buy into the offense and it’s worked. It makes the game easier and our chemistry is starting to grow. The pick-and-rolls are even starting to come easier.” - Amar'e Stoudemire
