The Grizzlies wins 97-83 over the Kings. Randolph scores 15 points, Conley scores 18 points. Gay scores 24 points for the Kings. Gasol:
When you move the ball like that, it gives everybody a chance to get a feel.
We played Memphis Grizzlies basketball, which is defense.
Every time it looked like we had an opportunity, we’d bite ourselves in the butt with a bad pass or a bad decision.
The Rockets beat the Kings 115-111. Harden scores 51 points, Ariza scores 22 points. Cousins scores a triple-double (24 points,21 rebounds, 1o assists) for the Kings. Ariza on Harden’s performance:
He finds a way to wow our team every time he goes out there, He’s just so crafty and he can score so many different ways. It’s definitely fun to watch.
Coach Karl on Cousins triple-double:
I’ve never coached a guy that can put up so many things into a game, He has a triple-double, but really has a quadruple-double because he had six blocks, three steals and at least one or maybe two charges. There are another 10 possessions he gave us because of his defensive abilities.
If the attack is there, then I take it, if not, I find the assist, find one of my teammates open and I’ll pass the ball. Similar to every single game I play in.
The New York Knicks defeat the Sacramento Kings for their seventh straight win. Lin plays distributor and puts up 10 points and 13 assists in the game. Lin:
As a point guard, my field goal attempts have been really high and I don’t think that’s necessarily good. I think it’s more of my job to distribute and get people in rhythm.
Knicks Coach D’Antoni:
I just thought we played really exceptionally well the first quarter. Just the ball was moving, every time we drew up a play they ran it perfectly. Every time I think there was an opportunity to make a great pass, they did it.
