** Harpring on Pekovic: It’s just a lot of muscle right there.
** Sidney Lowe on Minnesota’s pick and roll: The penetration, which is really hurting us.
** Boler on Millsap’s finger: Gary Briggs is over there, gonna try to straighten it out.
** Harpring: It’s not like it looks pretty. It’s just fun to watch.

** DeMarre Carroll: I told Paul and Al, I said, “We need y’all, you know? We ride y’all to the end.” … When you got two big horses like that, you gotta feed ’em.
** Big Al on his plans for All-Star break: I’m just gonna relax, man. Let these muscle relax a little bit.
