The Aftermath of Game 1

"It's good that a few of the guys didn't have good games, and some of the rest of us were able to step up. We showed them that even when we've got Dirk struggling, other guys can step up and put the ball in the hole. We've got guys who can step up on defense and others who can score here and there when we need it."
-- Erick Dampier

"If a team is a little stagnant, and the starters aren't off to a good start, you have to come with energy. Not necessarily getting the basket, but maybe getting a steal and assist to one of your starters to get them going."
-- Jerry Stackhouse
