“It was good I got some open looks early,” said Gordon, who missed most Game 4. “I was definitely tired out there. There was points in time where I didn’t have legs. I’m pretty tired and thankful we have a couple days off.”
One of the game’s best plays came from Joe Johnson, who had two great shots in the fourth quarter saying, “We are kind of growing up in the moment. These guys have never been in this situation. We have to go home with a business mindset and not be overconfident but confident enough. This has to be our Game 7 in Game 6.”
