 No, not really. I really wanted to come out and play hard, though. I feel like we have a sense of responsibility and we are voted in for what we do during the season, which is play hard ... (The fans) want to see us go at it and see us compete and that's what I try to do and that's what I try to tell my teammates to do.

 You want to know the influence of Blake, look at all the dunks I had tonight. Just being around so many young players gave me so much energy, to see them bouncing around and all that stuff. Just re-energized me for the night. But the fourth quarter, man, I had nothing left. I exceeded my dunk quota for the game.
