Speaking of whether the family watching the game on the sidelines has brought extra motivation, Davis said: "The lights on the sidelines are a bit dim. I am not sure if they are allowed to make noise, but their presence really brings me energy. Our bench is really energetic, you can see us cheering for our teammates, and you can see the vitality of our team. (Jared) Dudley, JR (Smith), Dion (Wettes) , Dwight (Howard), JaVale (McGee) all these guys, the atmosphere of these people is great. When you play a key round, they will be the first to stand up and cheer. This is our energy source. Just step on the court and do your best."
Speaking of zone defense against opponents, Davis said: "This is very difficult because we got a lot of open opportunities today. Your opponents are forcing you to take a three-pointer. Our pitcher is out of shape tonight, but we still hit. We took some key three-pointers and maintained our lead. We did a great job to find teammates on the court. We will continue to encourage our players to take open shots decisively. We hope that players will continue to take shots because we know those shots will eventually Hit. When the opponent is in zone defense, it’s only about making the right judgment, usually me, LeBron (James) and Rajon Rondo. At the center of the zone defense, we will find our pitcher, or A teammate who slipped to the bottom line and cut for a layup. When we stood at the center of the zone defense, the situation was clear."
