"I don't think that's a problem. They understand these guys beat us and they just beat Houston the other day. It's more about us. If we come and play the way we're capable of, we'll be okay. "

"I think Terry's doing an excellent job. You talk about bandaids, it's not just injuries, it's major injuries to some of their best players and it's been from day one. When we played them the first time, Kevin wasn't in uniform then. If you look at their box scores from game to game it's incredible. So many different guys have had to fill in and I though the other day both Michael (Gelabale) and Chris (Johnson) helped them get a win. You've got two guys just here for a couple of days and they helped them get a win. I think they are doing a good job considering the horible circumstances."

"I know they are making more shots, I know that much. Some of those guys shooting percentage was really down during the Avery tenure but as far as their schemes and their offense, they're running the same stuff. They pretty much have the same name for it so I don't think P.J. has changed that much. They are scoring more and defending better. "

"AK will probably be on Wallace, at least to start with. I don't think we're going to move him around much. Then who's Luke (Ridnour) going to guard? The first time we faced these guys we had Chase (Budinger), we had Brandon (Roy), we had bigger bodies so it wasn't that much of a problem for us. Now with Luke playing two, maybe Ricky is going to have to play some two. We just have to wait and see how the game plays out."
