Post-Game Quotage
** Quin Snyder on defending the final play
You know, we weren’t as aggressive on the ball as we needed to be. Rudy [Gobert] was too far back, and we let him get on the inside of us, where they could throw the ball over the top rather than stand between him and the basket. And you know, two lessons learned.
** Snyder, asked if he’s questioning himself over whether he should have had Gobert inside, or did he like him on the ball
Well, he wasn’t on the ball. We put Rudy, we’ve always had Rudy on the ball, and we had [Derrick] Fav[ors] in there. And you know, you can question everything that happens. It, like I said, he got behind us. It was a lot — just a couple of little execution things that we didn’t do properly and you know, they made — that was the result.
** Snyder on his decision to have Rodney Hood on the inbounds play on the Jazz’s final possession
Yeah, you know, I think, you know, Rodney, he’s also got length, and I think he’s a good passer, and in that situation too, we weren’t, it wasn’t a late-clock where we — it was gonna be a catch-and-shoot play, and I wanted to have Rodney on the floor in case the ball came back to him, ’cause he’s one of the guys that’s, you know, capable of creating a shot.

** Derrick Favors on the final play
Yeah, I didn’t even see [the pass]. I was denying my man. He was at the top of the key. I really didn’t see the pass or the catch. I just turned around and saw him shoot the ball at the basket. But you know, it was a good play.
** Favors on his improved game
You know, Quin, coach Quin talk to me a lot about stuff, and you know, I work with the assistant coaches a lot. And you know, we ju–I just keep improving on my shot, working on post moves, working within the offense and on defense. You know, just watching film and just learning where I need to be playing alongside Rudy, learning how to space and just all that stuff. So I mean, it’s a lot of stuff that I still need to improve on and get better at, but for right now, you know, I think I’m doing a good job.
** Gordon Hayward on the game
Very tough. I think we were disappointed with our play overall as a team, ’cause it doesn’t come down to the last play. I mean, the last play obviously is tough to swallow, but, it’s just disappointing…Just unfortunate for us. Unfortunate.
** Hayward on the final play
It was a great pass. That’s what coach [Brad] Stevens does. He’s excellent in those situations of coming up with the play. You know, I know it better than anybody, so. It was a great play, great design. They knew we were switching. The pass had to be perfect to get it over Rudy and over Rod, and it was. And then he made a good finish too, so. Credit them with their last play.

** Quin Snyder on the loss: It’s hard today. It’ll be hard again if it happens down the road, and you know, odds are it might.
