"I thought we did a better job of spreading it out and making the better pass down the stretch," said Bryant, who forced the Nets to double-team him late by scoring 14 points in the fourth quarter. "We can't just stand around and wait. We have to cut and move the ball. We were moving the ball better and got the win. We have to move and take advantage of what they give us."
"It was a tough one, sure, having to come back the way we did and taking it from them the way we did," said Bryant, who infamously went 6 for 24 in Game 7.
