On the game ... "Certainly they (Minnesota) did a great job tonight. They shot the ball extremely well and I was a little disappointed in our defense, but we were still in the game at the end. We didn't have the discipline to let our offense possessions develop and we missed baskets because of it."
On Minnesota's hot shooting ... "We tried to mix up the defenses on them in the second half, but they continued to make shots. (Kevin) Burleson was their X-factor. He could create shots for his teammates and score at will tonight. They're a good team that is difficult to play at home."
On the Minnesota size advantage ... "Their size advantage showed as they outrebounded us tonight. Their front-line scoring was a big difference in the game. I thought Jerry Holman played a very good game for them. We just started to get worn out in the second half and that resulted in a lot of pressure, which we put on ourselves, on the offensive end. They were a hot-shooting team tonight and that is tough to handle."
