After the game, his teammates, head coach and opponents had nothing but praise for how great the All-Star forward has been.
Head coach Nick Nurse
"For the shots he took tonight, that was one of the tougher ones and he made a big shot."
Head coach Brett Brown
"He's punishing for sure ... he hit that back-breaker three. The stuff that he can do to create his own shot is Kobe-like. He's so gifted in relation to doing that ... He's a hell of a player - 39 points and we really felt all of them."
"He's doing it time and time again. He's just getting better each game," per TSN's Josh Lewenberg.
"He is a really good player and he has been doing that for a long time in the league. He has done that in every game this series so what else can you do."
