He's a big man with a pretty good touch. In practice he shoots as good as anybody from 15 feet.

It's nice when you can get any time off during the season, other than the All-Star break. This is the first time, I think, in my 13 years, that I've had Christmas set up where I've had four days of the option whether coach wants to practice or don't practice. It's nice to have it.

We were getting the ball where we needed to get it. We just weren't knocking them down.

I can't see us defending it any differently.

We really played well on the road last year. Maybe it's the hotel food or something, I don't know. Maybe we can find a way to kind of get it together. Hopefully, we can come back with some momentum.

I know Baron pretty well. In practice when we played together, I had to handle (the ball). It's good that I know him, but it's not so good he knows me.

It probably hits him like a freight train, ... This was kind of a perfect situation for him. His wife ( Angela ) is from here. The kids are in school, kind of established, home, and then to move all the way to Toronto, that has to be difficult for anybody.

We didn't execute the way we executed to get the lead. We just weren't very aggressive.

We just have to go about business as usual. It's unfortunate. We've got to find a way to win despite that. It won't be easy.
