A few quotes after the Cavaliers played the San Antonio Spurs on 11/20/10.

"You’re going to have break-downs each and every game. Against the good teams you want to minimize them. The big games we’ve won and the big games that we’ve been close in, you can’t make many mistakes and we didn’t in those games. Against some teams you make some mistakes and they don’t make you pay for it. Tonight, going into this game, we knew they would make us pay for the mistakes. They’re not going to beat themselves. We’ve got to be solid. We made some mistakes and showed our youth at times. They showed their veteran status and did a lot of things well." - Mo Williams

"It’s execution and a lack of communication. We’ve got to do a much better job with communicating, stick to the game plan, and do things like switch on the (Matt) Bonner pick and roll. We left him with those wide-open threes. I don’t know if that’s a lack of focus as well, but that was the game plan that we talked about." - Coach Byron Scott about Defense.

"I just thought from an execution standpoint we just didn’t do the things we talked about. I thought it was a good opportunity to play against a very good basketball team." - Coach Byron Scott about the 4th Quarter.

"I think the biggest part was just the fact that all the little things we talked about on the defensive end that we emphasized this morning didn’t happen tonight. The Spurs aren’t going to beat themselves. We gotta make sure we take away a lot of the easy buckets and things like that. We didn’t do a very good job on the defensive end… Record wise, we basically played the best two teams in the last two nights, so we’ve got a long way to go." - Coach Byron Scott on the game as a whole.

"They are the two best teams in the league right now. [The Spurs] are playing at a high level. They’ve got players who have been in the system for awhile. They’re playing at an All-Star level. In the past they’ve been a great team at home and so far this season there’s nothing different. We knew it was going to be a challenge and we wanted to use these two games as a measuring stick. We showed signs, but we’re just not consistent enough for 48 minutes to be able to compete against these two teams these last couple days."   -Antawn Jamison on playing back to back.
