Coach George Karl stated, "And so much of what I want from our bigs is pick-and-roll defense and rebounding. If JaVale gives me that, he'll stay on the court longer. If I think Kenneth (Faried) or Kosta (Koufos) is doing it better, they're going to be on the court."

I thought JaVale played great, and when I took him out, I was initially thinking about putting him back in the game. But the matchups for me, I was choosing between Kenneth and JaVale, and I went with Kenneth."
