“I definitely take it as a challenge,” said big man Nic Claxton following the Brooklyn Nets’ 120-116 win at Golden State on Sunday night.

“I don’t care. If team’s are fouling me it’s almost a sign of respect. They can’t stop us, our team defensively and I just got to go up and knock the shots down. I’m going to take on that challenge every single time. 

“It honestly gets me going, gets me activated because when I start getting fouled I want to go back to the line. If that’s what teams want to do then I’m going take on that challenge. And yeah I’ll be ready.”
