"The Magic played a great game. On both ends of the floor, they were the aggressive team. We were very sloppy, but their game plan was great. Coach (Frank) Vogel did a good job taking us out of what we wanted to do, and they did it for 48 minutes. They outplayed us in every facet."
"I wouldn't say we took them lightly. They just beat us. We didn't play good defense and our offense wasn't any good. When you don't do those things, you end up getting beat by a lot of points."
"We were careless with the ball. Guys didn’t take their time. The Magic played an up-and-down pace, and we started to play their pace and it got away from us."
"I still don’t have the feeling we are playing that well. Our offense, I don’t think, is really there. It was a terrible performance."
"They got more confident and we couldn’t react because our shots were not falling. We needed a spark, something to get us going, but there was nothing."
"We weren’t mentally prepared. They punched us first and we didn’t know what to do. Our defense was horrible, starting with the guards."
"You are going to enjoy coaching that kid. He’s got a good heart."
"And he really does. He’s a pure soul. He’s got a great smile, a great way about him. He’s been really well received by his teammates and the coaching staff."
