“Vesely also finally had a chance to influence the game, as he scored four points, all on a pair of impressive, crowd-pleasing dunks, and added five steals in just over 16 minutes,” Michael Lee wrote.

After the game, a TV reporter asked Vesely about Nick Young’s claim that he was becoming a fan favorite.

“I don’t think so,” Vesely said, via this video. “It’s a team playing. We won, he did a good job in the offense. Of course we help each other in defense. It’s good that we win.”

Someone else asked about the fans finally showing a bit of life.

“It felt good, because I played in Partizan, and I think in Partizan they have I think the best fans and the loudest fans in Europe. So I hope I will do my best to get those fans in the gym and show them that we can play good basketball.”

Also, he made the above face, via @RecordsAndRadio, which has to count for something.
