"He set the tone for us defensively and did a really good job on a great player to start the game. That was important for us."
"I think everybody in this locker room loves those challenges. Top teams, the best players, that's what we're here for. We grew up watching this game and want to play in these games. To play against the best, beat the best and compete against the best and see where we stand individually and as a group."
"You're just fired up just playing against Russ out there. (Westbrook is) out there competing on every possession. The way he's been playing, he has been ridiculous. So, you definitely want to rise up to the challenge."
"Russell Westbrook is the head of the snake over there. We tried to slow him down as much as possible. He’s been playing crazy. He played well tonight as well. But we competed against a guy who competes every possession."
"Jon did a good job. He is getting more disciplined all the time and playing within himself and with his teammates. He is getting smarter all the time."
"Sitting behind the bench is terrifying, especially when you’re losing. It just eats you up as a competitor, wanting to be out there."
"No doubt I want to go back to the NBA at some point. But now I think about the five months of the season remaining (with Spanish club Baskonia), to insert myself in the dynamics of the team and try to make the Baskonia go as far as possible."
"Yes, although there were some signs before it happened. I'm not going to tell them, I'm going to keep them to myself, but after the decision I understood the decision."
"San Antonio made me feel part of the NBA world although I was adapting at the time. I felt up to it by how I played and developed, how I felt loved by the team and the people, by my teammates. That is one of the biggest things that I take from the NBA."
"I see Golden State as the champion more than likely. San Antonio is growing, has new players and other young people and that takes time. In the franchise they know it and are aware. They still have one of the best records, so I see them with a chance of reaching the Finals."
"It helped me because I got to do a little transitioning to playing point guard, which you can find more minutes. If you can play multiple positions, you can see the floor a lot more if you play multiple positions. That kind of helps. I went there for about eight games (11 to be exact) and played pretty much primarily point guard. It helped me come back here (San Antonio) and in the last quarter (versus Nets) I played almost all point guard."
"Oh absolutely! It's very similar. All the important points here (San Antonio) and the keys here are the same thing there (Austin). They're preaching the same thing there, they're preaching here. In Austin it's the same thing they're preaching in San Antonio. And another thing, the coaches give word down to the team in Austin about what he needs to focus on, what he needs to work on. I just got to keep getting better and stick to all principles here."
"I got to be confident in myself. I absolutely think so. I completely trust Pop (coach Gregg Popovich) too in all his decisions. I'd never question any of his decisions, any of the coaches or staff or my teammates. I'm trusting the process right now."
"The main thing is defense is going to keep you on the floor. You get to do what you want. For me it's shoot the ball, score the ball after you play defense. If he can trust you on defense, you're going to be good on offense."
