Scott Brooks quotes

May 12 2017

I don't care what they wear. I really don't care. It's about playing good basketball on the court. It's about playing together. It's about imposing our will on them and vice versa. Wearing black, it's great, it's a great color. Makes me look thin, right?feedback

May 12 2017

When you're as good as Brad, there's going to be extra attention on you. You've got to give the defense some credit.feedback

May 12 2017

I'll take a 25-point run. That'd be nice.feedback

May 12 2017

Even as a player, I always felt better. Just comfortable. Your crowd's great. They're backing you up. You've played in front of the crowd. You've played into the baskets 41 times during the regular season, so the rims, the court, everything's familiar. That being said, we've still got to play well. We've got to play with great effort. We've got to be locked in, focused.feedback

May 12 2017

If you miss a shot, you miss a shot. You've got to get back and not compound that miss with a defensive lapse.feedback

May 12 2017

That's been analyzed and studied since the game was invented. (With) the home court, you always have a comfort level. It just happens. I don't really know the real reason. I've been thinking about it for many, many years. We did not lose the series. We lost the game.feedback

May 10 2017

Avery was on fire, Al was terrific. We had no answer for those guys.feedback

May 09 2017

Bring some ear plugs. They're definitely going to let him have it. But you just go out there and play, play hard.feedback

May 08 2017

We made quite a few mistakes early. We can't have that. If you do, it's what you see: a 3, a 3, a drive, a 3, a 3, a drive. You have to be able to execute our game plan, and with that even being said it's not a guarantee that he's going to miss shots. ... He had wide-open looks and they made an adjustment and I think we did a good job of figuring that out.feedback

May 07 2017

We have to keep our high hands. Like all the great players in this league, they see your hands down, they are going to go through it and get easy calls. We have to keep our hands high. I thought our bigs have been working on that and talking about that. We've been showing them. With all that it's still hard to do. The temptation is to put your hand in the cookie jar and he is so clever. I thought our bigs did a good job staying vertical.feedback

May 07 2017

We made quite a few mistakes early on, things that we have talked about after Game 2. We can't have that. If you do, this is what you see: a 3, a 3, a drive, a 3, a 3, a drive. You have to be able to execute our game plan.feedback

May 06 2017

We've had a next man up mentality all year. We've got options, we can move some people around. But not having him, it's not ideal, but it is what it is. You just go forward and play the game. You can't worry about who's not playing.feedback

May 06 2017

I'm looking at all options – maybe give some extra minutes, maybe add another guy, maybe change some spots on the floor with different players playing different positions. Those are all on the table right now.feedback

May 04 2017

We can't respond that way, but when you get hit in the head a few times ... I mean, we're very competitive guys out there. We have two teams that are very competitive. But if you keep getting hit in the head you might respond that way. I think that's what he did.feedback

May 04 2017

I'm not saying that was the right thing to do. We have to focus on playing basketball. We can't control what they're doing. We just have to control what's in our game plan and stay focused. I haven't talked to [Oubre]. I definitely will talk to him. We have to keep our control and you have to let the referees call those calls. And at that particular time, they did call the right call.feedback

May 03 2017

He has the heart of a champion. What he has gone through and what he's able to do, you really can't explain. I wouldn't do it any justice to put it into words. But what you're seeing is pretty incredible.feedback

May 03 2017

Two teams played their hearts out. Nothing to be ashamed of. We lost both games. Now we got to go home and take care of Game 3.feedback

May 03 2017

Two teams played their hearts out. Two great players played well.feedback

Apr 30 2017

It definitely changes things but we got the next man up. We have to figure out how to compete and I thought our guys did a pretty good job. We let the 3-point ball get away from us but that's what they do. They shoot over 37 3s per game in the playoffs and they were 19 for 39, it's hard to do that when nobody is guarding you.feedback

Apr 25 2017

He came in, played well, took care of the game. He's just a winner. He makes winning basketball plays for whatever team he's been on.feedback

Apr 25 2017

The stats say that he hasn't shot the ball well, but he hasn't had a rhythm. He'll bounce back. We have confidence in how he plays and how he plays for us. We expect him to have a better game in a couple of nights.feedback

Apr 23 2017

It's his ability to score all throughout the floor. And his three-point shooting is a threat this year. It's something that he's worked on. From that 4-spot, it's a sweet spot in the league, the way the league is playing, with all the shooters around and all the tough decisions that point guards make on the defense. You get a lot of good looks if you're a 4-man who can make threes. And when he makes threes, we're tough to beat. When we took off in early January, the way he was playing had a lot to do with it.feedback

Apr 20 2017

Many guys pitched in to get this win, there was no question, but he was a big part of it. We were down going into that stretch of the game, he came in, gave us energy, made some shots. That's how he plays. He plays with a chip on his shoulder, he plays with an edge, and I thought those four [or] five minutes that he was out there, he was active on the defensive end and then did a good job of getting himself some shots.feedback

Apr 18 2017

The one thing that I did notice, even with our guys that did not have playoff experience with Keef and Kelly [Oubre Jr.] and their guy Prince, if you play hard, that's all you have to do and that's the pressure. The pressure is just playing hard.feedback

Apr 17 2017

I don't see anything out of the ordinary. I've been in many, many playoff games [that] were much more physical than that. Not saying that both teams didn't play hard, it's just different times. Different times.feedback

Apr 17 2017

What's the difference between MMA and UFC? Is there a difference?feedback

Apr 17 2017 - NBA

I was just hoping that he would stick the landing. I was going to give him a 10. It was impressive. Athletic. That looks easy because these athletes make things look easy. To jump over an NBA bench and land it and not get hurt is – I would have crashed into everybody. I would have been like a bowling ball, crashing into everybody. It did concern me, but I like guys that play with effort.feedback

Apr 17 2017

John can take over games, he can take over quarters, he can take over plays.feedback

Apr 16 2017

The most mild-mannered person I've ever been around that has a high competitive spirit.feedback

Apr 16 2017

John can take over games, he can take over quarters, he can take over plays. He's a tremendous competitor and he plays with toughness and he gets shots – 32 and 14, that's high level All-Star game.feedback

Apr 16 2017

He's like, just reboot the computer every miss and just focus on making the next shot.feedback

Apr 13 2017

We're one of eight teams that have a chance to advance and we're excited about the opportunity. I'm looking forward to seeing how we'll play and I'm very confident with how we're going to play. I know we're going to play with great effort.feedback

Apr 13 2017

We know they're a very good team and 3-1 in the regular season doesn't mean anything. Now we're 0-0. It's the first to four in a seven-game series. We know we're going to have to play well to beat them and we feel they're going to have to play well to do the same to us.feedback

Apr 12 2017

It is what it is. You just deal with it. You just want it to get here. I love this time of the year. This is fun. You work all your daily habits to be in this position, to be in the playoffs. Sixteen teams have a chance. We feel very confident in our group. Even with Ian [Mahinmi] being hurt, we still have enough to compete at a high level.feedback

Apr 11 2017

Maybe I was a little naive, but I thought that seven times.feedback

Apr 11 2017

See, I disagree with that. I expected it. I expected it. When I had my conversation with Ted [Leonsis] and Ernie [Grunfeld] and Tommy [Sheppard], I knew. I wasn't saying things just to get the job the job. I knew I wanted this job, because I knew the potential the team had. When you have a good backcourt, you have a chance to win in this league. Look at this – this whole city.feedback

Apr 11 2017

They better be. And if they're not, it's my fault.feedback

Apr 11 2017

It's a magical city. One of the nicest things I've ever heard a player say about a coach. I'm going to have him represent me at my next contract.feedback

Apr 11 2017

See, where else can you go and have all this, and it's all right here?feedback

Apr 10 2017

If we were fighting for a third seed, obviously, it could be different. And we all know he's as tough as nails. He loves to be out there and compete but right now it's the best thing for him to get some rest.feedback

Apr 10 2017

I want them to get some good work in. While we have a chance to play a live game, we want to be able take advantage of it. If you don't have any injuries or nursing anything, I think you should go out there and compete.feedback

Apr 10 2017

We'd love to get 50 wins but it's not like we're going to have a bad year. Going into this season, we would have loved to (be) in the playoffs and have home court and we've done that.feedback

Apr 09 2017

It was a tough play for him. He thought John was going to go over top, John came towards the ball. Unfortunate that it happened, but that's actually a learning experience. Otto has been in that position just about every time this year. That wasn't the reason why we lost the game. That was a tough play for us, not to have a chance to win the game … give them credit, they made a couple extra plays than we made tonight.feedback

Apr 06 2017

Jason has done a good job of stepping in and giving us quality minutes, hopefully tonight – he definitely has a big challenge guarding Porzingis, but I think he's gonna be ready for it.feedback

Apr 06 2017

You know what, he's been a little sore the last couple of games, but I thought he's been able to fight through it. But yesterday he woke up, was a little sore, and then today … So there was a chance, but I didn't know for sure until this afternoon.feedback

Apr 04 2017

We definitely want to play better going down to these last five games. Whether we win them or not, I'd like to win them all but I'd like to just play better and play with the spirit we need to have going into the playoffs.feedback

Apr 03 2017

If it were still March, I would say it's been a long month.feedback

Apr 01 2017

They said it was a 'hostile act'. I've been around a lot of fights back when I played. Come on. Hostile act?' Really? It's ridiculous.feedback

Apr 01 2017

That's not a 'T'. It was nothing. Like I said, it was basketball. I've been around John quite a bit he's not going to hit somebody below the belt.feedback

Apr 01 2017

We've been playing against a lot of faster, smaller teams … and we've been scoring points. I'd like to be a better defensive team after the break, but we're still playing good basketball.feedback

Mar 30 2017

He needs to play better. Definitely needs to play better but we've got some options.feedback

Mar 27 2017

If you're going to have a stance, back it up with some action.feedback

Mar 26 2017

We have a tough road trip ahead. We want to play well going down the stretch of the season. We're fighting for playoff positioning but it's really just playing well. We haven't played defensively as well as we're capable of playing.feedback

Mar 25 2017

They're the defending champions. They've been playing incredible basketball all year. Our guys did a great job. Give our guys credit. This is the way you want to start the road trip.feedback

Mar 25 2017

It took me like 63 games to get 70 points. I got 70 in practice, combined maybe. It doesn't happen often. It's pretty incredible.feedback

Mar 24 2017

I let our medical team and our players, that's their expertise, the team, and I like guys that want to play. He's not going to put himself in harm's way and obviously we're not going to allow him to do that, but if he feels like he can play, I think that's a great asset and a great trait to have as a player and as one of the leaders of the team.feedback

Mar 23 2017

I thought it was a good defensive effort. John did not have his shot falling for him, but he still played the defensive game and passed the ball, had 10 assists. I told him earlier this morning, I said, You can dominate the game with your defense and your passing. Doesn't – doesn't always need to be points from you. It would be nice, but it doesn't always happen.feedback

Mar 23 2017

Sometimes when you miss shots – he even missed his two free throws – it's just nice to see that ball go through the net. No matter how good of a player you are, it always feels better when the ball goes through the net. But I like the fact that he's still defending, he was still making plays for his team. Then the game turned for him offensively.feedback

Mar 22 2017

We definitely have to get back to playing with that tough-minded defensive approach that we did have.feedback

Mar 22 2017

We've got to play better. It's all just basic, fundamental basketball that we have to get better at.feedback

Mar 21 2017

John and Brad have been terrific all year. They didn't have a good shooting night, but they will bounce back.feedback

Mar 18 2017

He's one of the few guys that can go from in the paint, to contesting or blocking a three-point shot with his length, and his activity, and his athleticism. I thought John and Brad did a great job of finding him for open looks. When you have a lot of shooters on the floor, you're going to have opportunities to pick your poison, and he was the guy that John was finding throughout that first half.feedback

Mar 18 2017

He was trying to lead the league in scoring in that first half, right? He was good. You know what, he plays the right way. I know everybody says that, but he plays the right way. He gives you great effort, he runs our offense, he plays with great energy offensively, and defensively he gets in our pick-and-roll coverage. He contests shots.feedback

Mar 17 2017

He loves to play. That guy, he loves the game. I love competitive spirit and he's as highly competitive as I've ever been.feedback

Mar 13 2017

I'll give our guys credit, they've battled. We've been down just about every game, and they battled back and did the mental things it takes to come back from a halftime deficit. They've competed mentally and physically.feedback

Mar 13 2017

It's definitely a challenging trip, but every team will go through it one time or another. Four games in five nights, and then we have a day off and another game. Hopefully we have the energy it takes to compete. Minnesota is playing well, and we will have to defend better than we have been.feedback

Mar 12 2017

This has been a tough grind. It says a lot about our toughness but mainly says a lot about we're doing it together.feedback

Mar 12 2017

We do it together and it's good to see. You win a game like this, being down by the large number we were down but we were still together. It's always about being together.feedback

Mar 11 2017

The thing I don't like is, we're getting down. We have to have a better defensive starts and our urgency on the defensive end is not where it needs to be. I'm tired of talking about it. We got to do it.feedback

Mar 09 2017

I'm not concerned. Definitely you have to give the flagrant call but it wasn't intentional. It was the way his body was moving at that time but it's not my decision. Hopefully it all works out. Obviously we need him. He's a big part of our success but we'll see.feedback

Mar 09 2017

I'm happy that we're 2-0 but I do see definitely room for growth on this trip. I'll take the two wins. I like the approach we had on the offensive end. We really did a good job of moving the ball, sharing the ball and getting a lot of good looks tonight.feedback

Mar 08 2017

I'm proud of the way he's handled not playing consistently but he's won us two games by being a pro and you can't put a price on that. He was a big part of our win tonight.feedback

Mar 08 2017

I give our guys credit off the bench. They came in and played really well. That's an understatement.feedback

Feb 28 2017

Hopefully it's nothing serious. Prayers go to him.feedback

Feb 28 2017

It was huge. Otto's a sneaky rebounder offensively.feedback
