Team Quotes

On whether the offensive struggles are coming from the defensive struggles
We can get into offensively; we’ve had some really good quarters recently. Toronto, Oklahoma City, both of those games we had really good offensive quarters. But again, you have to play with a certain conviction in order to be successful in this league and the pace of what we are doing, the speed of which we cut, the level of execution. Tonight it just wasn’t there. Every one of us has to look in the mirror, wake up tomorrow and figure out what our choice is going to be.
-- Coach Bickerstaff
On where the change has to come from
You lose a game like we lost Saturday night, and you start to have questions and you start to have doubts. And when you put yourself in that position, those doubts creep in and you react one way or another. You either pull your pants up a little tighter and fight a little harder, or you allow those doubts to become weights on your shoulder and everything you do becomes harder, everything you do becomes slower and it’s like playing in quicksand. Tonight that’s where we were. Again, I look at where we were and the way that we played back-to-back Friday and Saturday, and there were a ton of positives there. Tonight we gave into those doubts.
-- Coach Bickerstaff
On whether or not he has confidence that the team will turn their season around
Yeah, there’s no doubt in my mind. It’s going to be hard. That’s the thing that everyone needs to embrace. It’s not going to be easy. There are going to be times like this, and again, it’s the decisions that we make as individuals in moments like this that define who we are. I have no doubt in the character in that group in the locker room. None whatsoever. So, we will bounce back, we will figure it out and we will be the team that we set out to be.
-- Coach Bickerstaff
On when it’s time to have a talk with teammates
We already had those, but I don’t think talk does much, it’s doing. I always believe that talk is great and we’re all going to say the right things and we can sit down and sing Kumbaya, but it’s more about grabbing it and taking ownership of the things we have to do—each and every one of us. I have to do a better job. Whatever the point guard is, guard three men, four men. The bench has to figure out how to play together more consistently, and we all do as a team. It starts with every single one of us doing our job every single time. Then we can figure whether we’re right or wrong, but until we do that, it’s going to be hard.
-- Marc Gasol
On if he feels like losing is bothering everyone else as much as it is him
I couldn’t tell you that. Everybody has to look in the mirror and as a man you have to take it personally because wearing this jersey means a lot. I think that they see it through all this how many fans show up and support. Before the game, we see it. Before we run on the court [we see] how many fans are gathered right there beside the {Courtside Club]. They see it. They feel the support. I’m sure when they go to grocery shopping, or maybe they don’t grocery shop, when they go eat somewhere, I’m sure they really feel the support from the fans and if they don’t do it for themselves, they should do it for the fans.
-- Marc Gasol
