Jason Kidd Quotes

The 14-game (streak) was different because we never talked about it, we just went out there and played. This is kind of the same. We are not talking about the win streak, but more focusing on trying to get better. We have gotten better, we have won games and hopefully we can continue to do that.

#Advantage

Early on we were struggling at home, but now that we're defending home court like we have in the past, that helps us. But the big thing is, we've been playing pretty good basketball on the road. Except for that Texas trip we had.

#Home

I don't know what's going to happen. The business always gets in the way of basketball. If there wasn't any business and it was just strictly basketball, then there would be no issue, it would probably be done by now. But the team has to protect itself.
Jason Kidd
#Basketball

We've just found that when we play defense, we go in the right direction. When we don't play defense, we go in the wrong direction.

It showed a lot of character. Getting in late after an emotional win, we could have just made it respectable but we did our job and wanted to win and that showed.
Jason Kidd

The big thing is, we showed our experience. We came out in overtime, put pressure on them, made some shots and made some stops.
Jason Kidd
#Experience

It showed a lot a character, again. You look at getting in late after an emotional win. You felt, 'Hey, we can keep it close, make it respectable, then we did our job.' But we came out and we wanted to win this game, and that showed.
Jason Kidd
