Jason Kidd Quotes Page 2

This is only his second year, and his personality isn't one to demand the ball, but we were joking he needed to be a little more vocal, to ask for the ball because he was going good. We ran a stretch when we went through him five or six times in a row. That's just the confidence we have in him and the growth in his game.

It's always good to win, especially the way we played the last three games. It's March and every game counts. We just have to play defense like we did down the stretch.

When you give a team like that comfort shots, they're going to wear you. I think we just didn't execute well enough the game plan. It's not just coach. It falls on the players for not going out there and execute.

After coming off of beating Miami, our energy was really flat.
Jason Kidd

This was a more pivotal game than most people think because of (it coming) after the emotional game against San Antonio, not playing our best. To come out against a team that is playing well like Milwaukee with nobody coming due to the weather, I thought we handled ourselves quite well.

He took control. He did what he wanted. Once he started to get to the foul line (he was 10 of 12), I think he started to get into a groove.
Jason Kidd

He took control. He did what he wanted. He ran the pick-and-roll, he got to wherever he wanted, he found the open guy, he got to the free-throw line.
Jason Kidd

We didn't come with any excitement in the first half. The goal is to win 50 is still attainable. The big thing is for us to get better and get ready for the playoffs.
Jason Kidd
#Excitement

We'll take the shots that Vince takes out there on the court because we all have the confidence in him.
Jason Kidd

I think the emotion of the game, the adrenaline was going, and he was up there, he was sky high. So it's just a matter of trying to keep it even and not get up too high or get down too low.
Jason Kidd
#Emotions

Offensively, he can shoot it from wherever on the floor and can stretch a defense. He's a big threat. They missed him in Game 2 and we all expect him to play in Game 3.
Jason Kidd

Whatever it takes. The game is not just played physically but mentally. If (Collins) is taking acting classes, hopefully he's not paying a lot of money for them. He's trying his best to play an All-Star.

We don't plan on being on national television until we get to the playoffs. That's just how the schedule falls. We just happened to fall on a Sunday when there was nobody playing today.
Jason Kidd
#Television

He's one of the best, and when you're one of the best, you get up for games like this. When he came here, people talked about how he was soft, how he was a guy who didn't want to compete when things got tough. But we haven't seen that. This is just like last year when he carried us on his back in the second half of the season.

Jason Kidd
#Bed

Everybody talked about his past or being soft or a guy who doesn't like to compete when it gets tough. He's shown us everything but that.
Jason Kidd
#Past

When you get older, you begin to appreciate (triple-doubles) more. When you can get a triple-double, that opportunity doesn't come every night. I probably stayed in longer than I should've, but I wanted to stay on the floor and try for it.
Jason Kidd
#Opportunity

I think he gives guys the freedom to express themselves or go out there and try something. If it fails, he's not going to point you out and say it was your idea, not his. He'll take the blame. And I think that shows he's with us, win or lose.
