Matthew Dellavedova on Ty Lue as a coach: "I don't think I've ever really seen him lose his cool. I mean, he'll get on guys and things like that. He's very even-keeled and keeps his composure and I think as a team you can feel that and he's been doing a really good job."

Quote of the night from Richard Jefferson: "You can always try and find a silver lining, but I'd rather be Negative Nancy. Whenever you get a team to 15 points, they are almost dead. When you get it to 18, all you've got to do is lift the shovel up and pour dirt on 'em, especially if you want to be a high-level team. We didn't do that tonight and it almost cost us."
