Team Quotes

On the team’s performance
This is who we need to be. We’ve had those pockets where we struggled offensively, but the more active we are offensively the more thrust we play with. We’re never going to be a super fast, break-neck team, but we need to play with more thrust. Even in the half court our cuts have to be more powerful, just our movement in general…and defense has to make decisions from that point. If we’re just standing and slowly moving on offense, they get to watch us and it bogs down. But the more pace, the more thrust we play with, the easier things will be for us.
-- Coach Bickerstaff
On Jarell Martin and Deyonta Davis’ performance
When those guys are playing like that, it gives you opportunities to rest some of your guys. We’ve been killing Marc [Gasol] with his minutes but when DD [Deyonta Davis] plays that way, it gives them an opportunity to take a little bit of a breather. But DD is growing, and I think that’s what’s important. That’s what this is about right now, being able to take what we’re asking you to do and translate it to the court, and we’ve asked DD to run more. We’ve asked him to be more of a presence in the paint, and he’s grown. So throughout this year it’s still a part of development and he’s done that. Jarrell, you know he’s a guy that’s been in and out of the rotation. He’s been up and down, but you look at the effort that he played with and his skillset, his tools, his natural ability is today’s NBA. You know it’s speed, it’s athleticism, and you look at the job he did defensively and you have to give him a ton of credit.
-- Coach Bickerstaff
On the team’s performance during the fourth quarter
I thought defensively at the beginning of the fourth [quarter] was great, and we created a lead and we were able to maintain it…I thought we were consistent and disciplined enough.
-- Marc Gasol
On how he feels about his performance over the last few games
Man, it feels good that I’m healthy, that’s the most important thing. I’ve been struggling with my knee. I worked hard all summer to train, to get my body right, and I prepared myself for this season.
-- Tyreke Evans
On how close he was to not playing because of his injury
I was close, but I just knew once I started moving it probably would feel a lot better. When I said it was hurting they gave me a little medicine to kind of tolerate the pain, but I wanted to win. I wanted to help the team win. That’s what I did.
-- Tyreke Evans
On the team’s pace
I think we did a good job. They had a lot of rebounds and that’s what we were talking about at halftime, but at the end of the night I think we did a solid job of just stopping the transitions. They hit a couple threes, you know that’s what they do, but we pushed the pace.
-- Tyreke Evans
