The Cavs lead the Wizards 2-1 in the best-of-7 first round playoff series. Here’s Wizards guard Antonio Daniels:

Antonio Daniels on Game Four: “We have to come out with the same energy from Game Three.  That was big.  In my three years here that is the loudest I heard this arena by far.  It was electric in here.  Those fans were amazing.  We have to come out with that same energy, that same enthusiasm. We have to use home to our advantage.”

Daniels on the Playoffs: “This is the best time of the year.  It’s warm outside, there’s great weather, and then you walk in here and the crowd is going crazy like that.   Also, it’s great because every team isn’t here.  You don’t have the opportunity to play in the playoffs all the time.  So when you have the opportunity to do it you have to take advantage of it.  The moment you walk into a playoff game it’s completely different than when you walk into the gym for any of those 82 regular season games.”

Daniels on the Verizon Center crowd: “You really feel the effect of the crowd.  When you walk in there and that crowd is going crazy like that, you fell as a team that you can accomplish anything.  That’s why home court is so important.”

Daniels on coming off the bench: “There’s such a difference between starting and managing the game, and coming off the bench and changing the game.  Coming off the bench and changing the game is something I’ve done for 11 years in my career so it’s something I feel comfortable with.”
