On the strong third quarter:
“Give teams credit, teams in this league are not going to lay down. You got to make sure that you are prepared, and when you get the opportunity you create some separation. We have done that in back-to-back games in the start of the third quarter. Ideally we would like to do that in the start of all games, but these are NBA players and NBA teams, they come out prepared. Another quality win for us on the road and put another one in the bank.”
On the strong defensive effort:
“I thought the second half defense especially was special. Can’t remember the numbers but under 30, shooting poor percentage too. Ultimately for the game they were 38 percent after starting off 55-59 percent. So, very pleased with what we did in that second half. I thought our bench gave us great energy and effort in the first half and continued. It was a big time win for us.”
On David Lee's game:
“I really thought about taking him out. I looked, and I said 9-for-9, wow. I wanted to try to leave him perfect, but he took a jump shot. I tell you what though, Steph Curry is an All-Star and there is no doubt about that. The way that David Lee has played this last 15 ball games, he is an All-Star also. He has separated himself, and the bottom line is for us to continue to play well as a unit, and individual goals will fall and the team goes forward.”
On playing his first road game in Milwaukee:
“It was good. It was good to see fans come and support me for many years. We got the win which is the one thing I care about. It was good to see friends and family that I haven’t seen in a while. There are a couple of people left over in the organization that I know.”
On the team's defense:
“I think our defense was decent all game but in the first half they scored 14 points in the paint and eight of them were from turnovers. We were keeping them out of the paint, but they were knocking down tough shots. [Brandon] Knight and a couple of other guys were knocking down pull-up jumpers and three’s.”
On the winning streak:
“That means a lot. More importantly, I think our team is playing more consistent basketball. Everybody is stepping up when they need to step up. Just really excited for this group of guys that we can make this happen.”
On his low post game:
“I think just try to be more aggressive, and I think our team needs me to be more aggressive in the paint. Because we’ve got so many guys that are good jump shooters that we need someone around the rim that’s going to be aggressive and attack the basket. I think that in turn opens up a lot of our shooters as the game goes on.”
- No interesting notes tonight.
- Flying from Washington to Milwaukee isn't that bad when you have a day off. But then you have to fly from Milwaukee back over to Brooklyn with no days off? Yipes. Still, let's get the perfect road trip AND the franchise tying 11-game win streak tomorrow!
