Coach Kidd on Game 5 victory:
A lot of people look at it as house money. You can always talk about the future, but we don’t. We don’t really understand what the future holds for us. We’ve got to stay in the present. This is what this team has done all year. They haven’t looked at the future. They’ve just stayed in the present.
We believe that we can beat this team, and we felt that we shouldn’t be going home right now.
Gibson on Bulls loss:
They came into us, put us on our heels early, and we’ve got to battle back. very team is talented in this league. It comes down to execution and will. We just didn’t have it tonight.
