Team Quotes

On the second half defense
Yeah. I mean, the combination of the two. I though Marc was phenomenal back there patrolling our defense, quarterbacking that deal. Then, Mike really got it going there in the second half and carried us for stretches.
-- Coach Fizdale
How did you feel about Brooks defense on McCollum?
Well, you know, he’s a rookie. He had one mental lapse, and you leave McCollum open for a three. Other than that, I really loved the way he competed. I thought he made him work. We’re talking about premier, elite guards in Dame and CJ so all you can do is make them work, but they’re still going to get numbers. They’re so well coached with Terry that it’s just hard to shut them down. You just want to make it difficult.
-- Coach Fizdale
His thoughts on the last possession guarding CJ McCollum
Don’t score. He likes going left and he was going left but then he got me on a little push off and he had an open shot. I feel like I contested pretty good and I was just hoping that he’d miss and he missed and then he got the rebound and I just ran back to try and defend it again.
-- Dillon Brooks
On his steal to and-1 play near the end of regulation
Tyreke [Evans] he held the ball a little so they committed a little bit and then I had an open lane. I’ve been practicing finishes when I first got here so I finished pretty easy.
-- Dillon Brooks
On how they were able to control the game defensively
I think communication for the most part, defense has a lot to do with communication. It allows you to see a little bit for what’s going to happen, maybe half a second or a second early and it brings also trust, the guy on the ball knows where you’re going to be at and then you get a little bit higher and more into it and you just trust the next guy behind you and that’s what defense does for you.
-- Marc Gasol
On the team early in the season
It’s very early, we’re now 10, 11 games in? 11 games I think. We still don’t have that entity, I mean everything is still brand new, everything is up for grabs. We need more consistency and more discipline to figure out people’s spacing and people rolling through. Right now it’s a little bit chaotic sometimes but that’s what we’re shooting for.
-- Marc Gasol
