"Obviously I know what the situation is, and just trying to focus on the game. And if I get a call tomorrow, I'll definitely be happy, and there will be a lot of people that can be proud of that moment, as well, and we'll enjoy it. But right now I'm happy we won Game 1. I'll wake up tomorrow a fresh new day, and we'll see what happens.‎"
