Quote Of The Game
“I thought we ran out of steam and ran out of good plays. We were playing well and we let [Jose] Barea get lose for a couple three’s and cut the lead to zero, and from then, Dirk’s Dirk. He’s going to do that. He’s a tough one to handle. But we didn’t make a lot of shots when we were running, and they played well. They’re a good team. They out ran us. They played hard.” - Mike D'Antoni
