May 05 2017

Sunday's game is about pride. You don't want to get swept, especially in your home building. Something we've done is knock down 3s all year. For whatever reason it's escaping us right now. He was limping badly. He just couldn't go. He wanted to. The doctors and trainers and medical people were just telling him he shouldn't try to go because he was in so much pain. That stretch right at the beginning of the fourth quarter is what got us.feedback

All the other antics and all those other things, you have an opportunity for 48 minutes to do something about it. You can do something about it legally, cleanly, it doesn't have to be flagrant. Like I said, it's not hockey, you can't take your gloves off and go at it until you fall and hit the ice. You can physically get into the guy, make him feel you, and that's what I don't think we've done. He's way too comfortable moving around, freedom of movement, passing, shooting. Again, I'm not saying our guys for the whole game didn't do that, but too many times they felt comfortable.feedback

Play. Compete. That's the thing about it. You're going into a 15-round (fight). You work all year to go against the champ in a boxing match. You train, you hit the heavy bag, you bounce out and you come out and you go to the rope-a-dope for 15 rounds instead of throwing a punch.feedback

May 05 2017

To beat the champs, you got to throw punches. Whether they're haymakers, undercuts or whatever. Maybe a couple below the belt. But you got to box. You got to fight, you got to compete.feedback

May 05 2017

If people want to use the word 'We got dominated,' that should get your hair up on your neck a little bit, get you upset a little bit, getting accused of getting dominated. I hope so, in a smart way. I don't want to get anybody thrown out or suspended or anything like that, but yeah, you should be teed off or upset when somebody's using the word dominated, that you got dominated. The word 'dominant,' that play [where James spun the ball], coming off and having a beer on the sideline, all those things should get you upset to make it a physical contest.feedback

May 05 2017

He was limping badly, he just couldn't go. He wanted to, the trainers and Alex [McKechnie, the team's director of sports science] and the medical people said he shouldn't try to go, he was just in so much pain [but] he wanted to.feedback

May 03 2017

The series has gone nowhere. They played well, we shake their hand. They played well, but we haven't scratched the surface of where we can go.feedback

May 03 2017

We take our butt whupping and head home. To lose like we did and to play like I did, it sucks. It's frustrating.feedback

May 03 2017

I believe in our players. I believe in our guys. I know there is another level we can get to. I've seen it before.feedback

May 03 2017

That's just officiating. DeMar DeRozan, the same way. James Harden, the same way. And it should. Those guys have earned that. If you're going to knock out the champ, you've got to knock him out. If it's close, he's going to get the call, so to speak. I have no issue with that whatsoever.feedback

May 02 2017

You're not going to stop a guy like that, he's got buddies out there and he's a great passer but our anticipation, our level of force has another gear to go to that we didn't display last night.feedback

May 02 2017

I've coached against the Magics (Johnson), the Jordans, all those guys are freaks of nature. This guy is no different but, it's a team game. There's some other things you can do to help against him, but he does some things extraordinary and that means we have to do our job extraordinary – anticipation, help, double-team, help, whatever it is to minimize or negate a little bit of that.feedback

May 02 2017

We used to have to tell Gary Payton and those guys, Hey, he puts his pants on one leg (at a time). I think that's natural. It's human nature to watch a Michael Jordan or a Karl Malone, spectate until they hit you in the mouth. When a guy hits you in the mouth a few times – now what are you going to do? That's the mentality we have to have, they punched us.feedback

May 01 2017

They were well-rested, flying around – almost like a half a step quicker than we were all night. We've got to make adjustments as far as how we want to guard the paint and then get out to the 3. Offensively, get cleaner looks.feedback

May 01 2017 - NBA

There's no lead safe in the NBA. He's the hub of everything. He understands where everybody is. He's a quarterback. He's a point guard. He's a power forward. He's a small forward. He's a shooting guard. He's everything.feedback

Apr 24 2017

In this series, he's been the X-factor.feedback

Apr 24 2017

He's a tough kid. You're going to have to take an arm and a leg off him before you keep him from playing.feedback

Apr 22 2017

We were just trying to send as many bodies to him as we possibly could.feedback

Apr 22 2017

I've always said we play better with our backs against the wall. It's a tough way to live, but I love our team's resilience and personality.feedback

Apr 18 2017

I've been in the trenches with him before and he's always bounced back. That's just who he is. He's a competitor, he's a fighter. I just knew that he wasn't going to be satisfied with the way he played in the first game.feedback

Mar 03 2017

He's one of the best. As far as tight situations, you can't think of nobody better to get the ball to than Dirk. His size, his toughness, his strength. You look at him and he looks slender but he probably has one of the strongest cores you can have. You can't knock him off balance.feedback

Mar 03 2017

He's one of the players you almost have to tell to get out of the gym. He'd come back in at night time ... and stay until 10 o'clock at night.feedback

Mar 03 2017 - NBA

Dirk Nowitzki is probably one of the most tough-minded NBA players I've been around. You're not going to shake him, you're not going to get into his head, his psyche. Back in the day he used to have (fitness equipment) in his living room. A lot of people have TVs and pool tables, he had a Precor. ... so he's one of the most dedicated, hardworking stars I've ever been around.feedback

Jan 30 2017

It's scary because it kind of reminds you about what happened back in the '60s, when I was growing up. Even though it's different issues, it resembles that in a lot of different ways. A little bit more sophisticated, but it's similar. And it's a slippery slope. For every action, there's a cause and effect and a reaction by other people, so we have to be careful. Again, I'm a U.S. citizen, a proud U.S. citizen, but we have to be careful how we're handling our business in the states.feedback

Jan 11 2017

He's a tough kid. More than anything else, the 41 points is nice, but 13 rebounds, the 11 defensive rebounds when we needed it. DeMar came in and got some big rebounds, tough rebounds, so that was impressive. That was more of a sign of grit and grind as much as the 41 points.feedback

Jan 09 2017

They put their heads down, attacked our feet. There was a stretch where we played good basketball for 39 minutes, but it is a 48-minute game, and we have to extend that.feedback

Jan 04 2017

That was a championship performance by a championship team. That's the way you come out with a championship approach and desperation mode and we didn't meet it. It started from the first play of the game.feedback

Dec 29 2016

I think he's grown in every aspect of his game except probably his 3-point shooting, but he's probably one of the best in-between shooters in the league. He's one of those guys that he's always brought something new to the table each and every year. I couldn't think of anybody who deserves that honor or record or whatever you want to call it more than DeMar. I think he's the face of our franchise. He represents it in a first-class way.feedback

Dec 26 2016

All the pretty 3-point shots and dunks and all of that, that's good. But when it gets to close-game-time down the stretch, you've got to have that competitive spirit. And that's what we're trying to build on, that toughness when it counts.feedback

Dec 26 2016

We're not a finished product. There's a lot we can improve on.feedback

Nov 08 2016

We can protest, but the only way you fight stuff like that is through voting. Using your right to vote.feedback
