Suns Guard Jared Dudley
(On the difference in the game)
"The difference was the second half. We started playing a little more aggressive, a little more assertive. First half, again 50-50 balls, they were getting too many dunks. Their bigs are really poor free throw shooters, so we’ve got to put them on the free throw line. We did a better job of that – limiting their easy points and just kind of grinded the game out."
(On the team’s intensity)
"The game was still close where a lot of pushing, grabbing was going on. Even if you think you’re not getting the calls, you need to make a stand to a certain point within the grasp of the game. I thought we did that and offensively we didn’t let it get us down. We didn’t do any more hard fouls after that, obviously Robin (Lopez) did and I think (Blake Griffin) only made one of those free throws and it was a technical on them, so it wasn’t that big of a deal where it could have changed the whole momentum. But it shows us the fight in this team where were not going to just roll over and let a team just run through us."
