What was key down the stretch to secure this win, we got enough stops they’re, a great offensive team lucas, a problem. He almost had a 41 triple double tonight, but i think we made it difficult enough hit some big shots down the stretch rocco a lot of guys stepped up tonight, defensively when we’re down seven down eight detrent, a lot of guys, hoodie active hands tonight and i Think that was the difference in just your third game. Back after missing two months, you come out looking great tonight finishing with 32. cj’s back. Can we say cj is back yeah yeah. It took me a little bit to kind of find my groove. I i told uh some of my teammates. I said this is my ninth workout since january 16th, including three games, so a little rusty, a little rush. It looked like i hadn’t played basketball in a while, but i finally settled down my dad told me to show my ass tonight, so i tried to to make sure i go to work tonight. How did it feel out there for you to not only be back on the floor, but to be able to be such a contributor? It feels great, honestly it’s a blessing to be able to play the game having to go through. You know, injuries throughout my career. I have a greater appreciation of life in general, outside of basketball and like with basketball, so i can take the wins with the losses.
I can take the three for 16 nights and and better nights and take it all in strikers. I know how hard i work. You’Re, fantastic in that fourth quarter, but i’m gon na take you back to one of my favorite shots, the buzzer beater to end the first. With your left hand, you were talking to your left hand. What was that conversation like? I told her thank you for for being here with me today and it’s been a while, since we since we’ve seen each other. The right hand was failing me in the paint, so i figured i’d try out the left hand and she never fails me. Oh that’s, fantastic and tonight your third straight win happens to be coach. Stoth’S 500th. What does it mean to you to be such a big part of this one yeah thankful we’ve been here for a long time together. I think i got here a year after he started and have been able to build a lot of great winning uh moments with him. So to have the 500th moment come tonight in the game against his former team. I think it’s, a very special one shows you what type of coach he truly is great job tonight.
