Opening remarks -
Obviously, Carolina is a great ball club, they played very well. I think they’re the best team in the country. They come at you in waves. We were just hoping to not have those big runs and they just went on an 8-0 run to end the half. We were right in the ball game, and I think it was an 8 point game or something like that, and they went on that 8-0 run with two threes and obviously my technical finished the half, which got them some separation and then they just kept coming at us in the second half.
On the second technical to get ejected from the game -
I really don’t want to talk about the officiating because I really don’t want to take anything away from Roy’s club. He’s got a great team and they really took it to us tonight.
On if he watched the rest of the game in the locker room -
I did...It was very difficult. I apologize to our folks back in Miami. That’s not my character.
On why he thinks Carolina is the best team in the country -
They’re just so deep, they’re so talented, Roy is an outstanding coach...He’s got a team. Trust me, he’s got a team.
On if he went into the game trying to stop the transition game -
I thought we did [stop it], for the most part. The first half, they were at 41 points, this team averages 90 a game, and they went on an 8-0 run the last two minutes of the half. It was lat minute. We were doing what we needed to do, what you have to do is be able to sustain it.
