"I thought they played a very good ballgame. We got back in it and took the lead and then we turned it over a couple of times."

"Their boards were key."

"They played a good game. I thought Larry Drew was outstanding. He controlled everything."

"I certainly don't want to think that. If that's the case then we are going to be in that situation again. We need to be able to come out and play. I think we just missed some shots."

"I want to give them credit. I certainly don't want to take anything away from their defense, but we got some good looks."

"I don't think we did a good job of getting the ball into Tracy."

"Tracy did a nice job of kicking it out when they doubled."

"No question it hurt us because it takes away that inside presence we count on. That's a time when other guys have to step up."

"Tonight we couldn't make shots. Unfortunately that happens."

"There was too much penetration I thought from the top with their guards. Drew in particular got in the lane."

"We just wanted to be solid and not give them anything easy, but the dribble penetration hurt us."

"In that stretch we turned it over four times. We started to try to create things that weren't there."
