NBA FINALS: HEAT v THUNDER


June 16, 2012


Shane Battier


MIAMI, FLORIDA: Practice Day

SHANE BATTIER:テつ After watching film, I'm always left a little salty because you see all the things you could have done better.テつ It was fortunate we won Game 2, but we made a lot of mistakes.テつ After watching the film, the good news is we can play a lot better.テつ I think we can play a lot better, especially on the defensive end.テつ That's why we're excited to get to Game 3.

Q.テつ Why have you been so successful offensively?
SHANE BATTIER:テつ Well, shots are there.テつ I don't think I'm a priority on other teams' scouting reports.テつ Coming into the series I knew there would be looks; got to make them count.

Q.テつ You've waited a long time to get to the NBA Finals.テつ Were you just saving it all up?
SHANE BATTIER:テつ I wish, I wish.テつ This is amazing.テつ You feel fortunate just to be in the NBA, and you feel even more fortunate to have a chance to play in The Finals, something every little kid dreams about.テつ Now that we're here, we just want to make the most of the opportunity.

Q.テつ (Inaudible.)
SHANE BATTIER:テつ We just haven't done a very good job on Durant.テつ And Westbrook, despite his criticism, he's scoring over 20 and giving us all sort of problems.テつ So there's a lot of room for improvement on the defensive end, and that's what we have to do, just keep building.
