Excerpts from a postgame interview with Jazz center Enes Kanter.
Kanter on his six points and 10 rebounds, and appearing to get over his nerves: Before the game I was really excited again, because it was my first real game after two tournament years. I was kind of nervous and excited, but my teammates talked to me and my coaches talked to me and said, 'Just calm down and just go out there and show yourself. Just go play hard and go rebound and try to do your best.'
Getting the nerves out of his system: I finally got to play a complete game after a long time. I'm just so happy now. Other games I'm just going to try to play harder.
