Doc Rivers puts an end to any speculation of him and the Lakers coaching job by saying that he and Steve Ballmer have agreed earlier this season to a new extension that still needs paperwork to be finalized.

Mario Hezonja was asked about the Knicks' approach against James in the fourth quarter, when James went 4-15 in LAL's loss: "He just missed shots. Don't get that twisted. He had (33), 8 (assists) and 6 rebounds. He just missed shots. If you are saying you are the reason he's missing shots, you are an idiot. Pretty simple… We did a good job of sending him of where he doesn't like to be, if I can say that because he likes to be everywhere. But yeah, overall good job by the team on playing defense on him."

Mario Hezonja on his approach defensively against LeBron James on the Lakers' last possession, which ended with Hezonja blocking James' drive and sealing the Knicks' win: “He's one of the most un-guardable guys in the world and one of the greatest players of all time. So it is tough. But when we're on the court, who cares? I think you gain respect by fighting for that, so I just didn't care. I wasn't trying to look around. I was just trying to play as hard as I can and try to stop him.”
