COACH SCOTT SKILES
(On the Bucks offense): "We shot the ball so well. (Ersan Ilyasova) and Mike (Dunleavy) both (shot well) in the first half. It was almost like they didn’t hit the rim, it was right in the middle. Our ball movement was good again. We had 19 assists and three turnovers at half time. We just had a very, very, very good offensive game. We were able to pull away and keep them at bay...There are certain nights when everybody is kind of seeing everybody and we really did a nice job of that tonight."
(On Ekpe Udoh and Larry Sanders playing together): "Ekpe (Udoh) is appearing to be one of those guys, that statistically, his line might not look that impressive, but he does a lot of nice things for us out there. And if Larry (Sanders) can come in as well, with his length around the basket, then we have two pretty good defenders out there."
(On playing alongside Brandon Jennings): "I’ve been watching his game for a (while). We just have to coexist and get the pace going. We really don’t have to change our game much, just continue to do what we do. He doesn’t have to bring the ball down all the time, I can (also) do it. He doesn’t have to run the screen and rolls all the time, I can do it (too). He can spot up and vice versa."
(On his play): "I’m just in a good flow right now. My teammates are finding me in good positions and I’m just knocking down shots. I’m being put in a good situation and just taking care of the rest. It’s going well right now."
(On the game) "I had to be there when the big guy went down. It's unfortunate that we lost the big fellow. We were in the twilight zone in the second half. The second group did a great job and lifted us up, and then the starters came back at the end; it was a good victory."
(On playing alongside Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis): "(Monta Ellis) learned the system really, really quickly and they’re both really good players. I think they’re really good pieces for us, for the future."
