"Look man I told you. I'm not talking about Game 5 no more," Stuckey said. "S***'s over. OK? Damn. It's already done. I don't have social media. No, I don't look at people's -- what they f****** post on social media. I'm 30 years old. I'm a grown a** man. I don't listen to that kind of s***. So I'm good. Game 5 is over, we won Game 6. Now we got to focus on Game 7. There you go. Good night."
