"I don't think we came out as sharp as we would have liked to - I know its game one but us coaches want to be sharp all the time."
"There are certainly things we need to work on – rebounding the ball. They only shot 35 percent but 20 offensive rebounds – that's too much so we have to go back to work again."
"Those guys – CJ, Ryan and Lorenzo did a great job. CJ's energy was unbelievable. I thought he set the tone when he came in the game."
"I don't think Tracy worked hard enough to get it – if you notice a couple of times he caught it he was four or five feet off the block. We don't want to give him the ball right there but we gave him to it anyway. He has to work harder."
"Getting 82 is still good against that team."
"If he's going to go up and alter those shots we need those other guys to get in there and get some rebounds."
"[Leslie] can push it. He's long, he's fast and what I liked was that he doesn't try to do anything fancy with it. It's a hard push and a simple pass, a simple play. It helps us when he can get a rebound and push and our guards can get out and run."
