Head Coach Mack McCarthy
"Guys make up their minds about an opponent an awful lot. They'll decide how hard they have to play against a certain team. Sometimes when they realize they were wrong, it's hard to change gears. I thought we tried to change gears, specifically Brock [Young], Jontae [Sherrod] and Jamar [Abrams].
"I didn't think we had an awful lot of enthusiasm and I certainly didn't think we executed very well. They really out-hustled us.
"A lack of enthusiasm is not something that has been a problem. We've had a problem picking up our energy after we've gotten behind a couple times. Coming out not ready to play has not been an issue until tonight."
On Getting Points In The Paint

"Part of that is my fault. I'm a team leader and I have to get everybody ready to play. I came out kind of lackadaisical myself."
On What To Accomplish Over The Long Break

On His Increased Offense
"It has been being smart about my shot selection and knowing when to shoot and when not to. Brock is doing a great job finding me when I'm open. I'm just in a rhythm right now and knocking down shots."
