EFFORT AND ENERGY

Frank Vogel on Bismack Biyombo:

“I thought his effort was what we have come to expect from him. He was really just trying to impact the game every way he could. His communication was great, and he made solid plays on the offensive end. He gave us a spark. We don’t need him to go out and go 7 for 9 every game, but we want him to be very, very active on the offensive glass, creating extra possessions for us, and to make extra passes when he catches the ball in traffic. I thought he did all those things well.”

QUIN SNYDER

Following Utah’s victory over Detroit.

“We didn’t shoot the ball well in the first quarter. But I think the guys still played offense the right way when the shots weren’t going down. That’s our challenge, to continue to play the right way. We have to do that when we’re not making shots.

JAMES HARDEN

Following his 11th triple-double of the season:

“As long as I play the right way and be unselfish and we win games, all that is going to come. I don’t think about it too much. If it happens, it happens and the most important thing is winning and it’s been a total turnaround from last year to this year … so (win) and great things will come.”

PLAY HARD

“When you play hard it gives you a good chance to stay on the floor and do good things for your team.” -Scott Brooks

It’s your responsibility to play as hard as you can. Whether it’s practice or a game. Every possession. Every drill. Both ends of the floor. Give it all you have. Nothing else is accepted.
