Keith Smart
On Tonight's Game:
"Well we're in the entertainment business, so we are going to make sure our fans get their moneys worth, but it puts the coaches, ownership and the general manager in the hospital. When you are playing with a big lead it’s hard to maintain composure to keep things solid. We also got into foul trouble right off the bat and that took some steam out of the team when our main guys really couldn’t function in the third quarter…which we normally we play pretty well in the third quarter."

On Keeping Monta Ellis on the Bench with Foul Trouble:
"I would’ve still done the same. Rather than losing him early at the top of the quarter I would’ve bought that time, I think you have too. He’s playing against two guys that are aggressive, that know how to draw fouls and next you thing you know he’s got a foul at the eight minute mark and I’ll be stuck without him for the rest of the game. At least if he fouled out it would’ve been with three or two minutes. I’m looking at the clock and the score and what happens on the floor. One thing that helps is that the team (Pistons) is not trying to do something quick. It actually plays into favor for me, because it’s slow and the clock is ticking and they are not going after anything fast. They were doing post-ups and isolations which eats up more time, which is helping my side. It actually paid off tonight. Maybe it comes back to bite me sometime in February but tonight we got a win."
Dorell Wright
On Tonight's Game:
"The number one thing is our toughness at the end. We got key stops when we were supposed to. We're a young team and we kept fighting. We got the key rebound and made big shots, and that's the positive thing we have to look at. The negative is giving up that big lead. When you play a veteran team like that they are always going to fight back and not give up."

On Playing at Home:
"It’s great being back in front of your home fans. They mean a lot down the stretch; they get loud and rattle guys at the free throw line, making them miss shots. We have some of the best fans in the NBA and they were really there for us at the key part of the game."

On the Steal with Six Seconds left in the game:
"I know the type of player Ben Gordon is. I’ve been in the east so I know a lot of these guys better than a lot of guys in here. So I knew Ben (Gordon) wasn’t going to pass because he wanted to hit the big shot. I was just reading it and as soon as he didn’t see me I just reached in there and used my length to get the steal."


- Keith Smart says that calbert Cheaney keeps track of 50/50 plays, which sounds like plays that could go to either team.

What's next?

- Plenty of time to rest. Our next game is on Friday at home against the Knicks again.
