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 scoring five points in a row at critical moments, Pope said: "We always want to switch offenses and run after protecting the rebounds. This has always been my specialty. I always run on the court and run from the end of the court. To the other end, from this corner to the other corner, so whether LeBron (James), AD (Anthony Davis) or Rajon Rondo grab a rebound and push the fast break, I am with them Run, pull to the bottom corner, and be ready to shoot. In the round of the arc breakthrough, we wanted to use the dislocation, set the screen, and then tear the defense. LeBron found a dislocation, and then both defenders were attracted by LeBron. I got the opportunity to take the open shot, but the opponent's defense was very aggressive. They did this the entire game, which gave me a chance to break through."
Speaking of the rest time two days before the fifth game, Pope said: "For us, the fifth game is just the next game. We will prepare as usual. We have two days to rest and recover. With some bruises and bruises, we just need to have the intensity of today’s game in the fifth game. We are still one victory away from the goal. We don’t want to be satisfied and fall into laziness. We want to continue to put pressure on our opponents and maintain Aggressive."
In this game, Pope played 32 minutes and made 6 of 12 shots, scoring 15 points, 3 rebounds and 5 assists.
