On the loss
"It comes down to toughness and executing. Their defense sort of messes you up a little bit. But we had enough open looks and layups and shots at the rim to win the game."
On the postgame message to the team
"We're trying to get some young guys to help us a little bit. It's sort of just overall execution, doing the things that we work on and doing them consistently. Every game in the league hopefully is gonna be, I tell them, 62-60. Somebody's gonna win, somebody's gonna lose, and the margin for error — it's very slight. So you gotta do all the tough things, the rebounds, sharing the ball, that kind of stuff."
On Marvin Bragg's health
"Yeah, he's fine, he practiced. It wasn't a great game for him, but maybe should have had him in there."
