Coach Gregg Popovich:

“We out-rebounded them. We shot better than they did. We out-scored them in the third quarter and out-scored them in the fourth quarter. We had the same number of assists. Basically, they get one more than we did but we had 16 turnovers. That’s a difference in the game. I couldn’t be more proud of the way we played. We had made all kinds of mistakes, but so did they (Dallas) and they want to win a championship. Our goal is to get better every game individually and team-wise.”

“I think that Jeremy (Sochan) is the main one guarding him (Luka Doncic) tonight. He made it difficult for him from the start. He’s he’s been doing a great job defensively this year. You know, all the matchups that he’s been getting, most nights, he gets the toughest one. He accepts the challenge. He makes it tough on the opposing team’s players.”

“That’s been our problem (turnovers) for the main part of the season. Just been turning the ball over. Playing a transition, they (Dallas) have closers with Kyrie (Irving) and Luka. Special players like that, we can’t give them more opportunities to put the ball in the basket.”
