Gregg Popovich

“I think overall we’re very pleased with the effort. All those different lineups make it difficult for those guys in trying to run too much,” Popovich said. “We didn’t shoot the ball in the second half very well, 33 percent overall and 25 [percent] from three. That’s going to make the half tough but we turned it over some more. Gave up 10 more points in turnovers.”

Charles Bassey

“That’s how we get better. That’s how we’re getting experience in this league,” Bassey said. “We’re just going to keep getting better. It’s going to be a good off-season. Just keep going strong. We’re just going to keep getting better.”

“They [Houston] outran us tonight a little bit. Too many turnovers, second-chance points, and a lot of points in the paint for them. We gotta clean that up for tomorrow,” Graham said.

Stephen Silas

“We wanted to make sure that we were getting out to their [Spurs] shooters more and just a little bit more intentional,” Silas said.
