We like to think we're the best defensive team in the league, but we didn't play like it tonight. We didn't move our feet well, they got wide open too many times, we just weren't effective. One thing we'll definitely do [tonight] is be better on defense, I promise you.

My policy has been pretty straightforward. This is the N.B.A. developmental league, and if at any point we get N.B.A. players, they get preferential treatment.

We're just not the same team we were.
