 Toni Kukoc - “I didn't sleep for a long time, especially knowing we had a chance to go all the way to the end and win a championship. We got stuck in the seventh game against New York, but just from seeing how disappointed the players were and the coaching staff, not going all the way, I realized everybody was going to be motivated. Fortunately for us, it happened three times.”
 Toni Kukoc - “It's the wrong time of the year for these things to be happening. But they're happening so we have to react as quick as possible.”

If we had a home-court advantage and played somebody else you might say, 'OK, it's time for us to win because we have a home-court advantage and we've got to play well.' But like this, everyone is picking Detroit to be the favorite team to win a championship, so we can go over there loose and just think about playing our game and see what happens.”
 Toni Kukoc - “It was a close game until that (basket) started looking like a garbage truck and whatever we threw up there went in. It looked like sometimes we didn't care who was in front of us, just as long as we let that thing go. It's fun to play that way.”
 Toni Kukoc - “It's that time of the season and we are in a (need-to-win) situation like that. As you can see it's very tight for the fifth, sixth, seventh spot for the playoffs. And whoever doesn't pay enough attention is going to watch the playoffs from home. We don't want to be one of those teams.”
