Post-Game Quotage
** Quin Snyder on the game
We just weren’t physical enough at the beginning of the game, and we can’t work our way into it…It takes too much energy to come back, and then you’re drained. … We’re not a good enough team to, I mean, our margin for error’s really small. So, if we have, you know, a stretch of four, five, six minutes where those things happen, you know, it makes it really, really hard. And that’s what happened tonight.
** Snyder on turnovers
There’s just a carelessness at times with the basketball. Guys gotta, we can’t work on, some of that. You know, it’s just, there’s gotta be a realization that those things are killing us. You know, that, it’s hard to overcome that, those turnovers. And it’s just, you know, I don’t have a lot of answers for some of those plays. … We just have to take responsibility for what we’re doing. I mean, it’s just, there’s mistakes, and just like, you can’t do that. You know, and guys have to be accountable for that. We’re at a point right now where, you know, you can’t accept those plays individually and collectively ’cause it’s hard to win. You know, it’s just that simple.
** Snyder on defending Anthony Davis
There was never really an opportunity to double him, ’cause he goes qui–so quickly when he gets the ball. It’s a real challenge. I think the thing you can’t do is give him some easy baskets, which he got some of those tonight too. And that just, you know, puts fuel on the fire.

** Trey Burke on the game
We didn’t get the stops that we needed, in the times that we needed. So you know, I think it was a solid night for us. The defensive end, we were just bad. … You’re gon have some games where you, you’re, you come out as a team slow. You know, it’s too long of a season. But the games, you know, the game that you don’t come out slow, you know, that’s what you have to build consistently. We have to build that, and we’re getting to that level.
** Gordon Hayward on his performance tonight
Tried to give us something. We needed some energy. We needed a spark. Tried to do whatever I could…Just tried to do whatever I could to try to give us some energy.
** Trevor Booker, asked what was said at halftime
I mean, we just knew we had to come out with more energy. We were pretty flat that first half, so we just talked amongst ourselves and you know, we knew that we had to come out with more energy.
** Booker, told that Trey Burke said the team needs to play at tip-off like it’s already losing
I mean, if he wanna do that, I mean, I have no problem with it.

Unintentional Dirty Quote Machines of the Night (UDQM)
** Matt Harpring: The length of Hayward is going to bother Tyreke Evans tonight. (H/T ‏@Mark_R_Pereira)
** Steve Brown on the military surprise: If that doesn’t bring a lump to your throat, what will?
** Brown: Gets that ball in. There’s the touch Hayward needs.

** Harpring on blow-up dolls whatever was going on above: Steve, they put you in one of those little plastic things, you wouldn’t be able to get out.
Brown: That’s probably true.
Harpring: You’d get stuck.
Brown: The difference is, I can get into one of those, but you can’t. Not that you won’t.
Harpring: My one leg would.
** Trey Burke, post-game: That’s a problem that we had last year. We would come out stagnant, and it kinda killed us as we were coming from behind.
** Gordon Hayward on the Pelicans’ offensive rebounding: Put you down in a hole fast, and it’s hard to get out of that.
