Randy loved basketball, but he knew he wasn't going to start ahead of Steve. And when Randy became an All-Star in the majors (2002), Steve was an All-Star with the Mavericks the same year. I'm proud of both of them.

We're all kind of happy. To perform at a pretty high level gives us some incentive that we're capable of maybe doing some better things. ... We were pretty darn good defensively.

Quite honestly, I was very nervous about our chances.

They came out with a lot more heart and passion than we did to start the second half. They shot the ball better and played harder than we did.

I thought we matured a little tonight.

I'm tremendously optimistic about John's future and his ability to play the game. He's very bright, understands basketball, has great hands, is a good passer and has a nice shooting touch. He's well aware of the fact that conditioning will be a major factor in his development.

Brody is concerned primarily with getting the ball to other people. Calvin's a good guy to give it to because he can shoot the ball.

The big difference in the game from our perspective was we didn't make enough shots. Maybe the emotions of the game just took us out of a good rhythm.

Younger teams have a tendency to have a few more problems on the road.
