He’s close to being a volume shooter. As I see his game . . . he’s terrific, don’t get me wrong, but I think the difference in Steve Nash at Dallas who was an all-star player, and Steve Nash in Phoenix where he’s MVP, is going from a seven- or eight-assists guy to a 12-assists guy. That’s the little subtle change that I think he could make. If I had the skills of T.J. Ford, I wouldn’t be satisfied with six assists. — Del Harris

The Argent/Pioneer Honda was really good today. I really think we got everything out of the car the way it was set up.

I thought that we did a pretty good job in not getting caught up in the way Phoenix played. We don’t have the offensive players that they have. Any team can get caught in the way they push the ball. — Mo Cheeks

I thought we did a pretty good job of not getting caught up in the way Phoenix plays. — Mo Cheeks

We needed to make sure we were able to control the house and stay with Phoenix Outreach Youth Center. — Jarvis Johnson

One of the things I pointed out to the guys was that it was a good win against Phoenix, but if we turn around and go to Charlotte and lose that ballgame, then beating Phoenix the night before doesn’t really mean anything.

I think if Phoenix pulled out, it would be a missed opportunity for Phoenix and the state of Arizona. — Robert Ross

A phoenix ain’t nuthin’ but a burd. — Cab Calloway

I think so. Not to disrespect them (Magic), but it’s not like you’re going up against Phoenix right now. You expect their numbers to be up a little bit, but they scored 54 points in the first half. I don’t care how you look at it, that’s not defense to our standards. — Bruce Bowen

I love California, I practically grew up in Phoenix. — Dan Quayle

With the NBA scheduling, a lot of times it puts the onus on teams traveling. You play Utah one night and a team like Phoenix is resting and waiting for you the next night. That’s tough. So you run into some circumstances like that more, it seems, on the road than you do at home. — Danny Ainge

We just have to keep pushing every race, … Phoenix is a good track for us and we have been able to perform well here as evidenced by our race last season. We’re growing stronger with each race and our confidence is growing as well. Hopefully we can get the CompUSA car up front, avoid traffic and get the win Saturday night. — Luis Diaz

One thing that hurt us tonight was our transition defense. They were playing a small lineup and we didn’t recognize that they were coming down and looking for the 3-point line. If you’re not ready to get back in transition, it’s going to be a long night. We saw the best of Phoenix tonight. — Dwane Casey
