Guys were looking for me tonight, and I think if they keep looking for me, I'll keep putting together games like this.
We want to go out and win on a good note and have three good days at the All-Star (break) and then come back with 31 or 32 games left. We just want to do great in the second half of the season.
We're not there yet. Playoff mentality starts a couple of games, a couple of weeks before playoffs.
We needed this game because we really hadn't played them well the last 13 or 14 games.
Coach Riley called me out a couple games ago, said I stopped running. The guys said if I run, they will get me the ball.
I'm getting there. I've been playing well these last couple of games.
The Miami Heat has the best fans. (President) Pat Riley put together the right team. It's our job to give them a good show.
Not at all, because if he's open I'm going to give it to him, and if I'm open I expect him to give it to me,
It's good that the proceeds go to where they go, but we have great fan support here, so we just want to give them a good show. Of course, it's not the Finals, so we're not going to go one million percent, but we might go 850,000 percent.
I don't give a darn if we go down 50. There's a never a point where we're out of it, because I know anything can happen. I've been around too long and seen stuff happen.
I just told Coach, 'Give me the ball and let me get my guys involved.
I knew I was dog meat. Luckily, I'm the high-priced dog meat that everybody wants. I'm the good-quality dog meat. I'm the Alpo of the NBA.
He's going to be real big, ... I tried to show him the way, how to get it done, what to do. And he's handling it all very good.
I saw some things that made me feel pretty good.
I don't have to go through Malik Rose I can go around him. He's not that good. He never has been.
Guys were looking for me. I was just trying to take the high-percentage shot. I was feeling pretty good.
I just told him to keep shooting. In the fourth quarter, I knew they were going to double from his spot, so I just said, 'Go to the spot' and he made good shots.
Pat gave me a couple of days off. I'm feeling really good.
We had to pick up our intensity in the last 10 minutes of the fourth quarter, and we did. We needed this win tonight. Now we want to try to close them out on Thursday. We really haven't had a good, solid game against them yet. We did OK. We did what we were supposed to do.
The man upstairs got me here (Miami) before I blew a head vessel or before I was going to bust somebody's head open.
Hopefully it's the highest-watched game in NBA history.
We all get older. When I am done, I hope I will be remembered as a great player.
Get away from my house. What do you want
We're having too many fundamental mistakes. We need to learn how to overcome those.
Me shooting 40 at the foul line is just God's way to say nobody's perfect.
