Updated: December 5, 2009

Matching up post-game locker room quotes with corresponding facial expressions.

Caron Butler

When asked about the shot Hedo Turkoglu hit with 8.1 second left in overtime, putting Toronto up for good at 109-107 …

“Turkish Jordan.

You know, it’s tough. It was a tough shot. Tried to make him take a difficult shot, and that’s exactly what happened.”

Brendan Haywood

When asked about the rebounding of Chris Bosh, who had nine offensive boards, five in the fourth quarter alone, and 16 total for the game …

“A lot of times with their team, they put you in rotations. [Chris Bosh] is so long that a lot of times we’ll have somebody smaller rotating to him. And that’s when he can really thrive on the offensive glass. As an offensive rebounder myself, I love it when there’s rotations so I can attack somebody’s two guard or three man and gain an advantage.”

Nick Young

When asked about Gilbert Arenas, who he’s never really seen be Agent Zero in a game-winning manner …

“Agent Zero’s going to be back. I’m waiting for a three, and he’s going to turn his back and walk into the locker room.”

Gilbert Arenas

When asked about the turnover which was caused by him and Earl Boykins running into each other with the Wizards down 107-102 and 1:22 left in overtime …

“He told me to come, I’m thinking he said, ‘Come get the ball,’ that’s usually what he said, but he was trying to tell me to come so he can go pass the ball to Brendan.

And I said, ‘Well next time use your little arm and wave me through.’ Wave me through (motions hand from left to right) means ‘get through,’ go like this (motions his hand toward himself) means come get the ball. So that’s what it was.”
