How nice was it for you to be so involved offensively the last two minutes?

Ibaka: “Just focus. Just be ready. I know it's playoff. I know other team, they know our best scoring is Kevin and Russ and James. Just be ready to make the big step.”

How has your defense on Dirk improved so fast?

Ibaka: “First of all, he's a great player. He's one of the top guys to play defense (against). You need to be focused. Just be focus. Just play your game. Most of the time, he's so great on offense, you can get in foul trouble. Also, it's not just one guy. It's a team. He's tough. I want to try to make him drive to the basket, because I know Perk will be down to help me. It's not just one guy. It's about team.”
