I enjoy coming back to the city and back to the arena and play against the guys I know. I definitely wanted to win this game because we needed the win. I just wanted to play a good game and give my team what they needed to win.
There were a couple of elbows thrown. I saw Raja on the floor twice before he got ejected. Raja got hit many times. It probably was frustration.
The longest future we see is the playoffs. I feel good with the team, the organization and the city. I'm enjoying myself. The confidence was always in there, but the everyday life is easier when you play and get confidence from yourself, team and coaches.
That's what we do. We make the guy sitting next to you better.
I just give the ball to my teammates and they make it. It's that simple.
My pride is my creativity, to be able to make plays for my teammates. That's why I've been fitting pretty well in this system because that's what we try to do. We've got a bunch of shooters, and I just try to set them up.
The philosophy of the game, they way we play here in Phoenix, it's really unselfish. A lot of passes, a lot of shots, a lot of up and down. The game is faster, too. When I'm on the court I'm able to read better and make passes to my teammates because I know where they're going to be.
I feel very comfortable. I'm just trying to do what the coaches are asking me. I like to a little bit of everything on the court.
I've been improving in a lot of different areas. That's why I'm happy to get this award right now because the only thing that scares me in basketball is to stop improving, stop getting better. I always want to get better. Because I'm a versatile player, I have to work on all parts of my game.
When I was trying to adapt, he was one of the guys who tried to make me feel comfortable and was really nice to me.
