on today's game
"Good win for us obviously against the best team in the West. Particular satisfaction in that, but it's just one game. I'm just glad we played well enough to win."
on Manu Ginobili
"He's been playing All-Star caliber basketball for about a month and a half now. He's taken over the team. He's done a great job."
on Manu Ginobili not backing off when the game got a little bit physical
"Manu never backs off in his life. He's won NBA championships, and world championships, and Olympic championships. He's a veteran winner for a long long time so he's not going to back off from anything."
on the team playing without any true point guard
"I give a little bit of credit to Manu. He kept us together. We just switched off between going to him and going to Timmy. They played together well. A little worried about everything that's coming up now without George. It's going to be difficult to sustain that and have Manu play the point in all these games coming up. So we'll have to figure something out."
on the team's play this season
"I think contribute that to the character of the guys. We've had a pretty mediocre year up until the last month and a half and they never gave in. They just continued to try to get better. Now they are playing their best basketball. I feel badly for them that the injuries are hitting them this late in the year, but they seem to be able to ignore it and continue to play."
on Tim Duncan
"It was great to see him be creative again tonight. He found ways to use the left hand; he used the jump-hook; he shot jumpers. He did a good job of varying his offense. That's when he's at his best when he does that."
