"I was extremely proud of our guys. We came into a tough environment and played hard."

"We knew they were going to make a run."

"You go on the road, you try to put yourself in a position to win, and then you've got to make plays."

"They made big plays... Reynolds three in the corner was probably the biggest."

"I can say that, but I don't want to take away from their effort. I don't want to do that. Whether we were tired or not, I'd rather give them the credit. Certainly, our guys played a lot of minutes, but I don't want to take away from their effort."

"They are able to rest some guys and certainly they can come back in and be fresh. He was running off those screens... certainly he wouldn't have been able to do that if he'd have been playing a lot of minutes. He did a great job. He came back in, and he did what he was capable of doing."

"It's still day-to-day. We'll see how he feels when he gets back."

"I thought all of their guys played well when they came in. They came in and just did what they had to do to help their team win. They certainly are strong when they go to their bench. That's something you've got to have when you want to win."

"I don't think our man-to-man defense was bad... I think it was okay. More importantly it was the offensive rebounds. They didn't make the shots on the first attempts... we made them miss several times. The man-to-man wasn't that bad, we just didn't secure the rebounds."

"If I had to do it again, I'd run it again for Brandon, and I think he'd make it."

"We're going to go wherever we have to go to get players."

"You want to get offensive rebounds, but for us it was more important that we didn't give up fast break points. I thought our bigs did a great job of getting back and protecting on that."

"It's a battle, it's a war. If you're on the road it's tough. I don't want to make excuses for our guys being young... I don't like to say that."

"I think this certainly was a great test for us, a great experience for us."
