Head Coach Alvin Gentry

(On the Early Deficit)

"We started the game with too many turnovers. We turned it over seven out of our first 15 possessions and they immediately got separation. We’re battling up hill from there."

(On Defending the Knicks)

"Our handling the ball, whenever we turn it over like that, it puts them out in the break and then transitions. They have shooters that spread the floor. It puts you in a bind."

Michael Beasley

(On the Loss)

"We have to stop digging ourselves into a hole. When you get down 15, 20 points you need a perfect storm to come back, and I feel like we are relying on that perfect storm in too many games. If we play our system and the effort we gave in the end there is no reason we can’t win games. If we dig ourselves into a hole and then the effort comes out we can’t win games.”

Head Coach Mike Woodson

(On the Suns Fighting Back)

"Every game is not going to be a runaway for us. You have to give them credit, they played hard. They were scrapping down the stretch and made a game out of it. We were able to close it out and get the ‘W’, that is what counts."

(On Tyson Chandler's Scoring)

"We put him in a lot of positions to score. Recently he has been scoring on put backs and offensive rebounds. He has been gobbling up a lot of missed shots and putting them back in. He has been finishing his shots and making his free-throws. That adds up."

Carmelo Anthony

(On the 12 3-pointers)

"They studied, they watch film. They were taking away Tyson in the pick-and-roll, and as a result they left us open with the outside shot. Those are shots that we take and shots that we make."
