A few post game quotes from the Cavaliers and last night's opponents the New Orleans Hornets.
"That is one of the statements of this team. We never quit on the game. I think tonight we kind of let it get away from us, but that fourth quarter and the end of that third; we made a nice little comeback, so we can take some things from this game." - Daniel "Boobie" Gibson
"It’s still a learning experience. Coach [Byron Scott] preached before the game that this was going to be a 48 minute game and after we started off slowly in the first half, we’ve got to take the initiative to get stops defensively and offensively, you have to make that move." - Antawn Jamison
"I am very proud of our guys . I thought we showed a lot of character tonight. We showed a lot of fight. We got down 20 or 18 points whatever the case may be and we didn’t mail it in. We kept playing and got it to a point in time that if we get a couple of breaks here and there we had an opportunity. There were a lot of positives in tonight’s game. Our 2nd quarter was probably the worst 2nd quarter we played all year. Other than that we did a lot of good things tonight." - Coach Byron Scott
"We played mistake basketball in the second half. I give Coach [Byron] Scott’s team credit; they played hard and didn’t give up. I thought we played basketball like we were playing the scoreboard a little bit. That was what I talked about to the guys after the game. If we’re fortunate enough to have a lead; we have to learn to play with that league and execute. I’m not going to complain about a win. It’s too hard to get wins in this league. And at the same time; we know that we can finish games a lot better but we beat an NBA team again tonight." - New Orleans HC Monty Williams
