We’ve been in that situation a lot of times already this year, and most of the time I hadn’t made it. We talked about it, and finally it worked when we needed it.

Just unbelievable. I know he was playing a little hurt, and he played through all that, found ways to get it done. I mean, just an unbelievable last shot over two of us. He’s just a great leader, and it was amazing to watch. I wish I wasn’t on the other end.
