Excerpts from TNT's Craig Sager's postgame interview with Lakers forward Metta World Peace:

 

 

Why were you guys so ineffective against this team?

 

I thought we did OK. You know, it was a game, a game of adjustments. I thought we did OK. We played Denver at home also, and they blew us out also. Just keep on focusing and locking in.

 

OK is not going to do it. You're playing in the playoffs against a team that is very good. You've got to be better than OK. How are you going to improve?

 

I think that's obvious. I think it's obvious you've got to do better than OK. But we'll be OK.

 

Are you fine now with the situation with James Harden or are still thinking what?

 

Right now it's all about basketball. I think after the season if fans want to talk to me, tweet me at or hit me at RonArtest.com or go to my podcast, “The Ron And Metta Show,” after the season we can talk about that, but right now it's more about basketball for me right now.
