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."

Dave McMenamin ESPN Staff Writer 

Tyronn Lue on LeBron attempting just one free throw in Game 1 vs. ATL: "He attacked and he got hit a few times. He didn't get the call, but we can't harbor on that, we just got to continue to play, continue to be aggressive and continue to attack and I think he'll get those calls."

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."

Once up 88-87 with 4:28 to go, Atlanta missed six straight shots, turned the ball over three times and surrendered two key offensive rebounds before scoring a meaningless basket in final 18 seconds. Hawks blew a chance to put pressure on Cavs, coming off eight-day layoff.
