DENVER, CO - APRIL 30: Ty Lawson #3 of the Denver Nuggets drives past Stephen Curry #30 of the Golden State Warriors with the help of a screen from JaVale McGee #34 of the Denver Nuggets during Game Five of the Western Conference Quarterfinals of the 2013 NBA Playoffs at the Pepsi Center on April 30, 2013 in Denver, Colorado. The Nuggets defeated the Warriors 107-100.
That would be the opportunity if I got the ball. But our offense isn't going through me, either ... So that's where it doesn't work out for me in both ways.

I can't really be as effective as I was against (Andrew) Bynum, who was getting 20 touches a game, and against Pau Gasol, who was getting 15 touches a game
I don't feel any expectations ... I feel like we're underdogs and that people feel we're lucky with what our record is, but we'll show them.More quotes »
