Head Coach Alvin Gentry

(On Out-Rebounding the Pistons)

"I thought we made strides from where we were the other night, especially in the rebound department. I thought we did a good job on the offensive boards on our end, and I also thought we did a really good job on the offensive boards as far as keeping them off."

(On the Individual Performances)

"I thought Goran was great. Once again he created a lot of open looks and we basically just have to be able to knock down the shots. Beasley had his moments. I thought he played great in certain situations. Marcin did a great job on the boards; I thought he was really great on the boards."

Luis Scola

(On Getting the First Win)

"It was really nice to have a win here. The first one is always specia,l and you need that to get it going. If we were to lose this game then we go on the road, and you start getting a little impatient and everything’s more difficult. We just needed one."

(On Holding on for the Win)

"We need to learn that there’s only one way to win games, and that’s playing focused for 48 minutes. If we play hard and hustle and do all the little things, it’s not going to be pretty a lot of times but that’s just the way it has to be."

(On the Win)

"We were defending good and didn’t allow them to get second chance offense going. We still need to spread the floor more, and our shoots were not good. We we’re 2-for-11 on 3-pointers. But it’s a first win for us, and we’re excited."

(On the Unselfish Play)

"That was a key to the game. If you have five, six, seven guys over ten points that means everybody’s dangerous for a basket and the defense doesn’t know where the shot is going to come from. We weren’t selfish tonight. We passed the ball around, and whoever had the better shot was going to take it."
