It was a welcomed change for Miami Heat forward Shane Battier.

For once, he was asked after the game about his positive play after his performance against the Washington Wizards Friday. It was the opposite the previous weeks when he was struggling.

"I re-evaluated how I've been playing and I have not been happy," Battier said.

"It comes down to effort and energy and I play better. Not that I wasn't playing hard, but I could've played with more energy. When you play with energy, good things happen."
