Magic F Brian Cook was unapologetic for taking action and retaliating after teammate Dwight Howard was thrown to the floor Monday night in the final period by L.A. Clippers F Zach Randolph.

Cook shoved Clippers PG Baron Davis a few possessions later, drawing a Flagrant 1 foul the same penalty Randolph had received for his mugging of Howard.

He also suggested teammates must immediately protect each another and send a message at times physically.

"I was upset because, I mean, it was a flagrant foul. [Howard's] my teammate. Everybody should be over there. ... Everybody should be over there," Cook said, repeating himself to emphasize the point.

"I know it was a key point in the game, but you can't let people treat people like that."

Cook realizes the Magic don't have a reputation as tough guys.

"Just getting tougher is something we're going to need to get through this West Coast trip and through the rest of the season," he said.

"All of us have it in us. We just have to keep on fighting."

Battling frustration

As of Tuesday, Cook had appeared in just six games before relieving Tony Battie in a critical time of the game against the Clippers at Staples Center.

He finished with five points in almost 10 minutes.

Cook, acquired in a trade last season from the L.A. Lakers, has been trying to regain minutes ever since he was criticized by Coach Stan Van Gundy for being out of shape in camp.

"It's been very frustrating for me. It's the first time I've really played the whole year," he said. "I've continued to grind and keep my confidence up. This felt great, especially being back in L.A."

I remember the final year he was on the Lakers watching games where we'd be building momentum and going on a run. As soon as Cook came in, the other team would immediately go on a run. EVERY time.

When I went and saw the Lakers play in Orlando the week after the Pau trade, the Magic were taking it to us.

As soon as Cook came in, we went on a run.



This is a really long way of saying I am so glad he isn't on our team anymore. If you put Cook in the game, you're saying "Go ahead, score on us now."
