Gasol on Udrich , Conley absences:
Without Mike, without Beno, I know how competitive we are. I’m sure guys will be ready.
Coach Stotts on Game 3 loss:
We had the momentum, we hit some shots, the crowd was behind us, and I thought it was going to be one of those games where we find a way to pull it out.
Aldridge on Grizzlies:
I’ve got to give credit to Memphis, they definitely forced us into some tough shots. I was watching film from the first half: Every time I took a shot they had a guy right there, and sometimes three guys. They have some defensive goals and it’s tough.
