Quote Of The Game
Nothing that we didnt know before. I think that we can compete with them obviously and we need to get one win. Tonight would have been a great opportunity. It didnt work out. Ive got to give them credit. They made big shots at the end. Thats why they are who they are. I didnt like the way a couple things went towards the end but thats life (and you) try to get over it. - Amar'e Stoudemire
