Last quote by Kevin Love

We have guys that can shoot the ball. I don't know what it says on pace, but last year we really pushed the ball with Bron and Ky and really opened up the floor. But we're just not shooting the ball well from 3 and that has to change.feedback

Oct 15 2017

I think it adds another layer to that (rivalry). Boston has been a team that's continued to get better and they were there in the Eastern Conference finals last year against us. I don't know if 'rival' is the right word, but they're right up there, if not the main competitor with we feel like us in the East and there's a few other teams in there we're going to fight with. But Boston seems to, like I mentioned, keep getting better.feedback

I guess it wasn't really presented in the first place. I knew there was a possibility that I may or may not be playing more of the 5. But a funny thing happened the third day of practice. Didn't make much of it at all. Preseason. A lot of bad stuff out there. It looked ugly, but we're fine. ... We'll look at some stuff, clean it up. As long as we play hard, good things will happen.feedback

Every year [LeBron's] the guy that you would look at and say he's right at the top. Best player, best athlete in the world. He's going to come in and do the same thing, lead this team. We've got a bunch of new guys, a bunch of new faces, but at the end of the day that's not going to change the way he goes about his business.feedback

More than anything, he's just playing free and he looks good. He's not carrying any weight in any way, whether it's physically or on his shoulders, any burden in that respect. I think for him that's huge. Coming out here and having a lot of fun playing basketball and you can see that, especially when we go 5-on-5 or we're just out there playing our sets.feedback

Tristan is a very dynamic roller, guy that plays a lot as a dunker. Myself, I have to play inside-out, mix that up and really take what the defense gives you. But it gives us a different look. I mentioned different dynamics out there on the floor with different lineups and we're so deep now that (Dwyane Wade) and a lot of guys similar in size at that 4-5 spot, we're going to see guys playing interchangeable. It's not just going to be on the defensive end in that regard.feedback

You got to play both ends,'. I was ready for that.feedback

Jun 10 2017 - NBA

We feel like any game that we walk on the floor we have a great game plan and we expect to win. But we just continue to have that fire, continue to be resilient, but right now it's just becoming one game at a time.feedback

Jun 10 2017 - NBA

We're a resilient group, resilient team. We have been in this situation before. Every year's different, every playoff series, every game, but we just are a team that never count ourselves out.feedback

Jun 08 2017

No, only missed shots. We missed shots. I gave everything that I had, so at times throughout the game I was tired, but that's just because I was just playing as hard as I could. But I was able to get second and third and fourth winds. I don't contribute as losing this game because we got tired. We missed some shots, and they made some.feedback

Jun 07 2017

Channing says to RJ, We're the No. 1 team in the East. We have an opportunity to fight to compete for a title every year. Why aren't these guys having fun playing together? RJ stepped back and said, You know what? He's got a point.feedback

Jun 05 2017

We definitely have a sense of what they're capable of, and we felt like a lot of times tonight we played better basketball. But they're a team you cannot – you can't let them go on runs.feedback

Jun 03 2017

[LeBron], I mean, he's at the forefront of that. He's the head of that. So just having a guy that has been here, done that before, has so much confidence in everything that we do and walks the walk allows us to be ourselves and be confident in approaching Game 2.feedback

Jun 02 2017 - NBA

We'll be keyed up and ready to go for Sunday.feedback

Jun 02 2017

They were really good on both sides, being in attack mode -- whether it was playing downhill [on offense] or on the defensive end pushing us out, making the catches tough for us. I think at certain points we did that, but we have to do that throughout. That's how you have to play against a team like them, because if they're able to move freely and set good screens, the guys are able to just get a little bit of space or a little bit of breathing room, they could be so effective. That's what makes them tough.feedback

Jun 02 2017

I think Tristan will come out in Game 2 and be a lot more assertive and just use his will to get rebounds on both sides of the ball. He's so capable and so good at doing that, no matter who we're playing, against any team in the league.feedback

Jun 02 2017

I think just make them feel us. That's something that I imagine Ty probably talked about (with the media) and we can definitely do a better job of. The onus is definitely on us. That's a mindset. Like I mentioned, we need to understand when to take fouls, when to be super assertive, super aggressive on the defensive end, and in the open court know how we're going to fan out to different defenders, not open up the lane for certain guys, and just make second and third efforts to get the 50/50 balls.feedback

Jun 02 2017

We have to stop the ball first and foremost.feedback

Jun 01 2017

It was one of those moments for everyone. When he sized it up and let it go and it was in the air, you know, we knew. I think towards the end of season he was like, You know what? I'm just going to go score the basketball and I'm going to dictate what their defense is going to do. And then it opened it up for him to getting into the lane and finding guys with assists. I don't know what his assists numbers say, but he's become, I'm not sure if it's a better playmaker, but a more willing playmaker.feedback

Jun 01 2017

Picking my spots, being assertive, as I mentioned, and just filling in the gaps where we know that 'Bron, being our leader, and Kyrie are going to be special. We talk about guys setting the tone, he's the best to do it. He's our leader, and we follow him at all costs.feedback

Jun 01 2017

He was about 30 pounds heavier and has a terrible haircut. No, I think he just means ... being assertive and just very confident on both sides of the ball in my movements. He's special in so many ways. But as far as his approach and his routine and just his relentlessness in chasing, that greatness is special to watch. We talk about guys setting the tone, he's the best to do it. He's our leader, and we follow him at all costs.feedback

Jun 01 2017

Just continuing to have a can-do mindset throughout and having confidence in each and every one of us. It's not just me, it's everybody playing their best brand of basketball.feedback

He's competitive. I mean he's one of the most competitive players in the league and he kind of spoke this into existence. He's a guy who said he wanted us, and he has us starting next Thursday and you know he's a guy who brings it every single night, so now with the way the Finals went down last year if I were in his shoes, I would want the same thing.feedback

May 27 2017

The whole underdog thing is funny to me, because, yeah, at the end of the day we are defending our title. We're trying to repeat, which is so hard to do. I think we will use it as fuel, we will use it as motivation, but the idea of playing into it? It's tough for me to say that is the case. I don't feel like we're underdogs. We match up well with them, and I think they'd say the same about us.feedback

May 27 2017

Want the Warriors? They've been right at the top, best team in the league for three years straight now. They've been super-impressive. It's kind of in our minds that that's who we were going to see. They played great basketball this year. Obviously adding an MVP to a team that already has a two-time MVP makes them even more impressive. It's tough to say that we didn't expect it; we knew they'd be right there.feedback

May 27 2017

He wanted us, and he has us starting next Thursday.feedback

May 18 2017

It doesn't matter to me if I'm getting five shots or 25 shots, I just want to win. I know I can impact the game whether it shows up in the stat sheet or not. I think that has allowed me to be comfortable out there on the floor, knowing that my mindset is really there, still being aggressive and making plays, as I mentioned, whether those are showing up or not. But just having all these guys' backs and being there for them is huge, and I embrace that.feedback

May 18 2017

We wanted to come in and set the tone and dictate the game. We felt like we did a good job doing that. It wasn't just me. Everybody was moving the ball, passing the ball well.feedback

May 16 2017

I look back at that game a lot. I'm not about story lines. I'm just going to play basketball.feedback

May 13 2017

We're 8-0. I don't mind it. If I get five or six shots, if I get 15 shots, it doesn't matter to me, as long as we win. I've been in this position before. We're having success, so I'm happy. Feel good.feedback

Apr 29 2017

I didn't shoot it necessarily well in Game 3 or 4, really. But overall I thought it went well. Got the sweep and more than anything, we have a lot of bright spots for our team even in Game 3 when we had to fight back from 25 down at half that a number of guys played well throughout and we hope that continues.feedback

Apr 11 2017

I think just the idea of getting locked in and having a do-or-die type mentality knowing that we can be sent home, I think that has a good calling for this team. I think we need that right now and having one game left in the regular season, yeah, I think we're ready to get this over with and then it will be go time. I'm definitely confident in this team, but you never like having to think that you have to flip a switch.feedback

Apr 09 2017

It was good it got turned over but missing that first free throw was tough for us because (Mike) Muscala hit that 3 in the corner which gave them the 1-point lead and that eventually kicked them over the top for the rest of the way. So, it was tough.feedback

Apr 07 2017

We needed it tonight. It was a huge, huge game for us, and we lost. That's the most frustrating, most disturbing and it sucks.feedback

Apr 07 2017 - NBA

I remember (owner) George Steinbrenner would just pull stuff out of the air and say, This guy is going out or this guy is saying this in the locker room,' and he'd stir the pot and create controversy.feedback

Apr 07 2017 - NBA

We thrive under chaos. We always do. It seems like there are times during the season – and it could be true – where we just say, the regular season is no big deal. But l think last night and in the third quarter (on Tuesday) against Orlando, our pace of play and defensively, how we were moving and how we were communicating was so much better.feedback

Apr 07 2017 - NBA

I don't know when that hits throughout the season, but March wasn't pretty for us. But at the end of the day, we're hoping to look back and say that was a lesson for us and that we can't let that happen again.feedback

Mar 06 2017 - NBA

What a rough month for injuries, myself included. League is so much better with everyone on the floor. Stay Healthy @ NBA.feedback

Feb 07 2017

A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to put its pants on.feedback

Jan 30 2017

So whatever he has to do to get 100 percent, that's the most important. We need Kev for the long haul. Everyone wants to push it through, but if you're hurt or you're not feeling right, get right because we need the big fella.feedback

Jan 07 2017

He's going to be another veteran guy. Obviously we know he can shoot the ball. With the way that we pass, he's going to bring a whole new dynamic to this team to help spread the floor even more than we can now.feedback

Nov 23 2016

There was nothing out of the ordinary as far as our play-calling and our flow of the game. I just felt like guys were finding me.feedback

I wasn't really aware of it.feedback
