“We bring a lot to the table. It’s an experience game. It’s still an old man’s game. You need those veterans out on the court. We don’t want to be the main guy. We just want to contribute.” – Larry Hughes

“In the first half we were dead in the water and I didn’t feel like there was any life. We weren’t giving anyone in the building anything to cheer about. I just thought we needed Nate to show some energy and he did, and the rest of the guys responded really well.” – Mike-D’Antoni

“We picked it up. We were pushing the ball up the court, putting pressure on the defense. There was a stretch there we were making shots and they were making shots, but for the most part we kept the energy and kept the pressure on. And once they start missing, we continued to make shots, so we pulled away.” — Larry Hughes

“When you lose three in a row and you’re playing bad you just try to give someone else a chance. You keep losing you got to change something up.” — Mike D’Antoni

“It’s up to coach to do what he wants to do. But we know how to win.” – Al Harrington
