Gasol on win Game 5:
It feels great. It feels great to have a little time off to do some things around the house. I’m going to have a little time to be with my little girl. It’s actually great to be home.
We wanted to go get the job done now, get some days of rest to get ready for the next tough series. Carter said. This is just a warmup for the next one, and the next one and the next one.
Coach Stotts on TrailBlazers loss:
The season was going to be a very special season. Unfortunately some things didn’t turn out the way we wanted to.
