|Jazz Head Coach Tyrone Corbin
(When asked if it was a good third and fourth quarter, but a tough first quarter…)
"Yeah, (The Spurs) scored 31 points in the first quarter. I thought the guys did a good job of coming back and putting forth an effort. We had a chance when we got it to six points and missing free throws cost us a little bit in a tight ball game. I think we had one stretch where we pulled to seven or eight, then we missed four or five in a row. That hurts you."
(When asked about the injuries to C.J. Miles and Earl Watson tonight…)
"We just have to pick it up. I thought DeMarre (Carroll) did a great job. He came in and gave us some great minutes. Jeremy (Evans) had some good minutes for us. We're just going to have to go with what we have. Our guys have been tremendous about responding all year and we expect that to continue."
(When asked what happened in the first quarter, were you overwhelmed by the Spurs…)
"I thought (the Spurs) were aggressive. They shot the ball very well. Their pick-and-rolls, they came off early. (Tim) Duncan had a few going to the basket. Tony Parker is just so dynamic. He was just getting into the paint and he broke us down a little bit."
(When asked what you were doing right in the third quarter…)
"We were aggressive. We came down the floor and we were attacking the basket. When we play aggressive we play great."
(When asked was that second half important considering you have to play them tomorrow, knowing you can be competitive…)
"Absolutely, it's important for us to continue to grow and build. We have to understand how to play. In the first half, we were all disappointed thinking that they were the aggressive ones. That second half, we were more aggressive and we played a lot better."
