Phil Jackson, Kobe Bryant Talk Mavericks

Phil Jackson and Kobe Bryant had good things to say about the Mavericks after Dallas’ electric Game 4 performance that tied an NBA playoffs record for three-point shots made and ended Jackson’s career in an unflattering manner.

Jackson:

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a team play to that level in a series in a game like they played this afternoon. They were terrific.

Perhaps Dallas is a little deeper team, a little more talented off the bench than we were, and it came to bear during the course of these playoffs.

Bryant:

You have to put the credit in the right place, which is in the Mavs’ locker room. They played extremely well. They executed extremely well, their spacing was excellent, they shot the ball extremely well. Their depth hurt us. Every night it was another player stepping up and performing and making big plays. So the credit belongs with them.

Bryant also said that he hated to see the dirty fouls late in the game. See his entire press conference below.
