Quote of the Night
** Ron Boone: I haven’t confirmed this, but I heard there were two or three million people in downtown Toronto. That is a ton of people.
** Tyrone Corbin, post-game: This is not fun. You know? I mean, this is, I don’t think we showed up with intensity that we needed to, to compete against these guys tonight…We got a couple guys out, but we gotta play with some more energy…This the NBA. I mean, everybody go through it, man, and you can’t get around it. You know, they’re not gonna wait until you get healthy. They’re not gonna wait for you to play better…[The guys] are a little beat up. They’re a little beat up. But you know what? They young. You know, they get through it. We’ll take tomorrow and reflect on some things.
** Gordon Hayward on what happened out there: I don’t know. Defensively, la–definitely lack of effort. I guess. I mean, or, lack of execution. Or something…Defensively, we weren’t there.
1) Richard Jefferson is no longer listed as a center.
2) “Minutes played” (usually the domain of our point guards) shows up in the stat highlights again.
3) Last year, we had #ArmlessAl. This was #ArmlessRick’s first appearance. Maybe both should just be renamed #ArmlessJefferson.
