Here is a sampling of what the teams said after the game.
Spurs' Gregg Popovich on the team's win:
“We made shots. You make shots, things get easy. It’s not like we’re Golden State or something, we’ve got a lot to learn. We’ve got to keep trying to play our best basketball for 48 minutes."
Spurs' Danny Green on the win over Phoenix:
“We’ve been starting pretty slow in our first quarters. Tonight we wanted to come out with more juice and more focus. I just think we had a good pace and we started pushing the pace and finding each other and letting the offense come to us."
Spurs' LaMarcus Aldridge on the victory:
“We were just moving the ball, guys shooting with confidence, trying to let our defense make our offense. I think that was good for us. You’ve just got to focus on not giving in, not getting too comfortable."
Suns Head Coach Jay Triano on big loss to Spurs:
“We are, I think, obviously undermanned and they just walked all over us. They’re a veteran team, they play well and we had no answer. We had injuries before, injuries during the game where guys couldn’t continue to play, so it makes it tough.”
