On Monday, Toronto Raptors forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson held a Q&A on the NBA's Twitter account as a part of the NBA Together campaign.

Hollis-Jefferson answered a variety of questions, from what it was like being a part of the Raptors' 30-point comeback against the Dallas Mavericks this season to what the best advice he received was at Arizona, where he spent two seasons before making the move to the NBA.

Below are some highlights from his Q&A.

The 30-point comeback

"It felt amazing, electrifying, awesome. I loved being a part of that 30-point comeback. To see Kyle [Lowry], the way he handled it and played his game, I loved it. Terence [Davis], Chris [Boucher] ... you know, it was a joint effort. It was awesome. Shoutout to Malcolm [Miller], shoutout to everyone that was a part of it that was in the game, shoutout to the people on the bench that was cheering, shoutout to the fans. Love you, appreciate you, God bless."

Which Raptor has the best kicks and style

"I've got to give that to Freddie, man. Kick game is definitely nice with AND1. Shoutout to Freddie.

"And then style ... you know I'm going to give it to myself, but someone I like to give a shoutout to is Serge Ibaka. He loves his art."

Favourite part about Toronto

"My favourite part about Toronto is the fans. You guys are amazing. It reminds me of when I was in college. Nothing but love for you guys. I appreciate you, the support. Even thinking about the comeback game, which was crazy, the energy was to the moon. I just appreciate you guys. Thank you."

Favourite game-winner

"My last year in Brooklyn, we play Sacramento, I believe we was down 27. Coach put me in, I think at the end of the third, beginning of the fourth. That second unit, a group of guys we came back and wound up winning the game, and it was off of my game-winner.

"That was probably the best moment for me. It was amazing. A lot of feelings going through my body. It's just hard to explain."

Best career advice

"Best advice I got when I went to Arizona was to keep working. You get to a place as a five-star recruit where you kind of feel like things should be handed to you, but that's not always the case. I was always someone who worked hard, who grinded for everything he got, so just understanding that, that took me a long way, especially in the NBA."
