Tiger Fight, October 7th. In the fourth game of the finals that ended today, the Lakers defeated the Heat 102-96, and the series scored 3-1 to get the match point. After the game, Lakers player Kentavius Caldwell Pope was interviewed by the media.
Speaking of his key performance in this game, Pope said: "This means a lot to me. My teammates need me. I just maintain a sense of energy on the defensive end and make shots on the offensive end. It feels great to stay in the rhythm of the game. You know, you don’t hit every shot, but you need to maintain that rhythm of the game. Break with the ball, create fouls, stand on the free throw line, and try to maintain the rhythm of the game. Playing, playing rounds, this is what I do. I try not to worry about whether I will make a shot, because I know that I will make a shot eventually, and I just continue to be myself."
In this game, Pope played 32 minutes and made 6 of 12 shots, scoring 15 points, 3 rebounds and 5 assists.
