|Detroit Pistons Head Coach Lawrence Frank|
(On run after tied first quarter): "I think the only thing we weren't doing well in the first half was rebounding the ball. Once we were able to kind of secure that up and keep bodies on bodies, then we were able to limit them to one shot and get out in transition. Obviously, a lot of good stuff tonight. Defensively, holding a team to a low (shooting) percentage, good ball movement with 28 assists, and a bunch of guys in the mix. I thought our second unit did a good job, even though they got offensive rebounds. I thought there was more of a defensive presence tonight; a lot of good play from a lot of good guys. You don't have a lot of games like this, but there are obviously a lot of bright spots that we just have to keep building on."
(On team's positive attitude during and after the game): "When you have games like this, it's always easy to have that. The key is during diversity. With this game, several good things, I'm not going to diminish it, yet at the same time it's one game one way or the other and we just have to keep building. We've started to put together better play at home, now we have to take the show on the road against two of the better teams; one that's arguably the best team in the Western conference and a Dallas team that's very good."
