INSIDE THE LOCKER ROOM
"I thought we played some pretty good defense and had some decent looks at the basket, but we have to execute better down the stretch and tonight we made some pretty big mistakes late that hurt us."
- Bobcats Guard Kemba Walker on the Cats play down the stretch

"It’s about execution under pressure, that’s what we’re after, but maybe the question is the bounce-back factor which was unbelievable from a really tough overtime game. That story’s been written but the mettle of our team is unbelievable. We could go through each possession and talk about it. We could talk about the who, but I prefer to talk about how we came into this game and the way that we leaned forward and played the game against a really talented team."
- Bobcats Head Coach Mike Dunlap on the game
