On team morale:

"These kind of starts are critical for us. We gave the Bulls a dose of what other teams have given to us all year. We just got off to a terrific start. Everyone offensively and defensively was in synch.

Defensively, we got after it, contested shots and we didn't turn the ball over. It means a lot to us to beat a team like this. I'm proud of our guys."
