Suns Head Coach Alvin Gentry
(On the game and Steve Nash)
"We lost our focus a little bit, but I liked the way we recovered, especially the way we closed out. I thought we were good defensively and I thought we closed out offensively as well. With Steve (Nash) being off for a few days, he feels a lot better. When his back is giving him trouble it’s hard for him to plant and shoot, but even when he’s struggling with his shooting, he can pick it up with getting assists. He can control a game without his scoring, and he’s feeling a lot better tonight."
(On DeMarcus Cousins)
"I'm not surprised about the play of DeMarcus. You can talk about Dwight Howard, (Andrew) Bynum and a couple of other centers, but he’s as good of a big guy that I've seen in a while. He’s very talented and he has a great feel for the game. He has a great touch on his jump shot and he plays hard every night."
