didn't shoot the ball well tonight and we didn't play with a lot of energy."
"We turned the ball over too much. We had 16 in the first half. You can't do that against the team picked to finish #1 in the conference. You just take away shots from yourself. I thought we killed that bug but it showed its ugly head again tonight."
"We just have to come out and play with energy no matter if we are making shots or not. We also have to take care of the basketball."
