"Manu is one of the all-time great competitors and winners, obviously, and he helped us do it again tonight."
"Manu reached back and gave us one of his Manu performances from past years. He was a stud. We actually went to him with Kawhi off the court. We went to him to generate some offense, and make some things happen. He did a good job, whether it was distributing or scoring. He was big for us."
"It was frustrating because I wanted to play. But I was happy seeing my teammates out there putting in a good effort and getting the win."
"It's going to be tough. They're a great offensive team. They're a bunch of competitive guys. They play great at home. It's going to be tough. It's going to be about taking care of the ball, playing confident and trying to minimize our mistakes."
"It was tough when we saw Kawhi kind of limping. We knew it was going to be a tough one. But they had it tough, too, and they're missing Nene, too. We really hustled down the stretch and made some good plays."
"Manu is the type of guy where he doesn't care about his points, assists or numbers. He just wanted to win the game. He did a great job, even at the end, blocking Harden on that 3-pointer. Who knows what would have happen if he had gotten that shot off?"
"I don't feel like I had a huge game. I felt better than the previous ones, that's for sure, but I guess the standards are a little lower than before. Of course, I felt good. I felt I contributed to the team, to the win. Of course, that makes you feel great, regardless of the stat line or how you felt."
"He's somebody that's important to us because he can go downhill. He can get by people and make things happen. I thought Jon did a fine job in Kawhi's absence."
