Nando De Colo

(On his personal goals...)
“Just play. Play to listen a little bit to what the team wanted on the court and what the coaches wanted. Just to do my job, and after step by step, it’ll be better for me.”

(On teammates getting used to his passes...)
“I don’t know. We just need to practice together and to know each other. Part of a team is knowing what teammates do. I’m the new one on the team so I must do my job. I must play for my team, so we’ll see.”

(On if he received any preparation from Tony Parker...)
“No, I just needed to play my game. I don’t want to do too much for the moment. Just to play for what Coach wants, and like I said, step by step. I’ll practice hard and we’ll see what happens.”

Manu Ginobili

(On whether he was satisfied from the Spurs’ play...)
“We played pretty well, especially defensively. That is our main concern right now. Offensively, we were a little rusty, and we turned the ball over a lot. We could have done much better. We can’t complain with the way we played defense. The way we rotated, the new guys played well. I’m pretty satisfied.”

(On what he liked from the new players...)
“The concentration defensively. They were very active following what Pop wanted with the game plan. We tried to blitz for a little bit. We tried different types of defenses and the guys followed. As I said before, offensively we to work way more. Of course it’s only been four days, so it’s hard to get everybody involved and make everybody feel comfortable. I’m very happy with what I saw defensively.”

(On what he liked defensively from the team...)
“They (Siena) played the way good European teams play; penetrate and kick and extra pass every time. As I said before, the rotations were really good. Everybody was very active getting charges. It was great to see. Everybody really focused on following the game plan.”
