I think she’s taking advantage of the moment for sure.
Harden on Game 5 loss:
Tried to do a little bit too much and turned the ball over and gave them easy baskets in transition. This isn’t where we wanted to end at. It’s a really good season for us. Next year we want to be better, and we will.
Coach McHale on Rockets:
The guys fought hard. One thing about the team is that they were battlers, and a lot of guys in that room you feel pretty comfortable going to war with.

Curry on Game 3 performance:
You know how big of a deal it is to come back from a deficit like that in the playoffs on the road, in a game we knew was very important for us to really take control of this series. So I think we should celebrate the accomplishment.
We haven’t been in that position a lot this year, but mental toughness and resilience is probably (among) our best traits. It was an amazing way to finish the game.
Davis on Pelicans loss:
Against a team like this, you can’t relax. “You’ve got to keep being aggressive and we missed shots. … We’ve got to do a better job executing and following our game plan, especially late in the game.

It was probably good for us to feel that situation, and have to deal with the pressure.
Coach Kerr kind of looked at me after I made the shot like, ‘You messed up on those two defensive possessions, but it’s OK’.
It was a tough one to swallow. We’re not quitting. We’re hanging on by a small, small thread.
