At first, they said I touched him, and then they said I changed the shot. I didn't touch him. I might have been on the floor, but coaches do that. I asked if they were going to give them the ball, too, but they said we could keep it. That was nice of them.
The first half of the season is not even over yet. I'm not standing here saying we're going to win a championship, I'm just saying I'm not going to give up. The All-Star break isn't even here yet. Y'all been around long enough to know anything can happen.
We have no depth to play him, so we're just going to try to give him different looks. He's just so big, there are only certain things you can do.
I'm having to play him too many minutes. He doesn't want to hear this, but I think he is tired. I think he needs someone to give him a break.
I don't golf, so I try to get into as many ballgames in a week as I can. I pitch, but I have to play every other position when I sub. I love playing all the positions.
We wanted to keep an extra guy in front of Kobe. And keep the last guy open. When the ball was below the foul line, I think we did a really good job of that.
It wasn't a get-back game. Neither team is going to the playoffs. It was just two teams playing hard and not playing for anything. ... It's not about getting them back, necessarily. It's just about they got us pretty good, now we owe them one. It's just the way the league is.
Chris was all over the floor. He was above everyone tonight. As good as he played, he has a lot more potential. His upside is huge.
I heard after the fact that Phoenix wanted him. The team that we really kept hearing was Golden State.
It's a very, very good win for us. I hope it's a breakthrough win for us, and we can build from this.
He never really established himself. I talked to him in the hotel and he seemed sad. But he said it was a good deal for both teams.
Our coach was concerned that the interest level was dying down. We had about four or five loyal guys, but you can't play a game with four or five guys.
Ray did what Ray was supposed to do late. He hit some big shots and we got a couple of stops that were real important.
If they are the best team in our division... then our division is up for grabs.
Here's what I really remember about Mike. On Thanksgiving he had us all over in Milan. We all had Thanksgiving at his apartment. It was just a neat day.
Our big guys couldn't handle Kaman and Brand. I thought we fought and got ourselves back in position to win the game. But we let them back in the game when we could have put them away. Not for the game, but for the spread at halftime.
I thought we got off to a really good start. We had a presence defensively. We ran the ball. The spacing was good.
They are a team built to win a championship and I thought under the circumstances our guys did a good job.
Their depth just wore us down. We were tired in the fourth quarter. I don't think we could have done much more than we did. I thought the effort was great, and guys played as hard as they could.
I don't think we could have done much more than we did. I thought they just wore us out with their depth.
I thought under the circumstances of having only one and a half to two practices and changing systems, we were pretty good out there. Overall, I was really pleased.
He (Johan) made jump shots, and I thought that kid was ... for someone we considered putting in the D-League, he was pretty good.
They played an awfully good game. It thought our guys played hard, we just struggled to defend them.
We were switching everything, so we had it covered. The way he Billups was going, I thought he was going to take the shot. ... I never saw Hamilton.
I really thought under the circumstances, that our effort overall was really good.
