Keith Smart
On tonight's game:
I thought we couldve contested their shots a little bit more. But those guys are never in a hurry, so theyre very patient and they know how to engage a help defender just enough to get a guy open and they know where everybody is going to be at all times. Its the schooling of a really good basketball team, a team that has been together for a long time. You look at (Tony) Parker coming off a pick-and-roll and hes not in a hurry, hes reading what the defense is doing first and then looks for his bail out spots next. Tim (Duncan) posts us up and he looks for where the double is coming from and where are my outs in case I get into trouble. Theyre just a good basketball team.

On David Lee:
I think the strength of him getting back to where he can shoot the basketball opens up so much for him. Were introducing him to another world, playing him on the box so he can post up a little bit. If the jumper is not going because of travel, legs or what have you, he can now go down to the low post and try and get plays there, get fouled and get to the line. He's just trying to expand his game and I think thats helping him when hes not on the perimeter.

Dorell Wright
On tonight's game:
Theyre perfectionists. If you stop one play they have a counter play. They have so many weapons. They have a group of guys that come off the bench that play together. Theyre definitely a tough team. Thats why they have one of the best records in the league. Theyre well-coached, well-disciplined on both ends and play hard together.

On If They Will Lose Momentum:
I dont think we will. I think we are playing well. We have another good team thats coming here. We are going to go out there and fight and its going to go down to the wire. We continue to play hard and play like how we played in the first half. We just have to put 48 minutes together.
