Team Quotes

On the Spurs doing anything different the second quarter…
They just got after us; they upped their pressure. They forced other guys to handle the ball. We went over it, we expected it, but we just didn’t respond well to it. I thought Mike [Conley] missed some “chippies” in there in the paint. But give them credit; they really turned the game around defensively against us. They forced us into tough situations in that third quarter and they got out running. They broke the game open in that third quarter.
-- Coach Fizdale
On what his team needs to do defensively to slow Kawhi…
We can’t worry about that anymore. We just have to do a better job of taking the challenge one-on-one. I didn’t think we shrunk the floor well against them. I didn’t think we set the ball to the pick and roll coverage. They chip at you and wait for you to break; then take full advantage of it.
-- Coach Fizdale
On what his team can do offensively…
We have to get Mike [Conley] going. Without Mike having a big series this won’t be much of a series; we understand that. Then we have to find a third scorer whether it’s Z-Bo [Zach Randolph], [Troy] Daniels, Vince [Carter], or a little bit of all three.
-- Coach Fizdale
On if the Spurs defended Mike Conley differently in the second half…
They obviously put more size on him, picked him up full court, switch, load up. I think that’s what they did. I haven’t looked at any game tape, but that is what it seemed to me, just watching obviously from the court.
-- Marc Gasol
On what specifically does the team need to improve upon
I think defensively we allowed them to just drive and kick and get into their flow. I thought early in the game we were being disruptive, getting our hands in passing lanes, and allowing ourselves to get out in transition and make some easy plays. We started getting hesitant defensively and against a good team like that you can’t do that.
-- Marc Gasol
On what changed after the first quarter…
They just took over the game. They started to hit shots and put pressure on us. We couldn’t get the ball where we wanted to get it. We just couldn’t get shots.
-- Zach Randolph
On the team's frustration level...
IIt got kind of frustrating. We’ve got to get one. The series is not over with. We have to make adjustments.
-- Zach Randolph
