"Actually, we've been playing pretty well, moving the ball and giving pretty good effort -- and then tonight, everything just clicked for us... Well, we have a game plan every night. Sometimes they seem to work a little better than others. You never really know, but I think we were -- we had their stuff covered pretty well and everybody remembered and carried out their job, too. That helps."
"Off of our high for the year, I think 25 (turnovers) our last game and it cost us the game. We turned the ball over 25 times. We're one of the lowest in the league, at least we were until we set our record. So anyway, we wanted to take care of the ball and we did that the first quarter. I wasn't very happy with six turnovers in the second quarter, but anyway, we were aggressive and did a lot of good things to get that lead."
"What I liked is that we have a game tomorrow and I didn't have to play my heavy-minute guys the whole game and fight until the end and all that. They had a hard practice kind of a game and hopefully we'll get our sleep tonight and we'll be ready to do it again tomorrow. That's the main thing."
"We're not going to pound our chest on this game. We got accomplished what we wanted. Guys were able to play. I think Jermareo got his first real opportunity and did well, and showed tonight that he can be an NBA player. That's a good thing. Not a perfect game for him, but he did a lot of good things and he rebounded the ball. That's what I'm after with him. I know he can shoot, I know he can play, but the rebounds, he went after them tonight. It was a nice game for him. I'm very happy for him."
"(Jackson) is the key to this team. Not only his scoring, but his passing, too, and his rebounding, things like that. He brings a dimension to this game. Tonight he was probably 23 (points) and seven (rebounds). He doesn't get the credit he should. He's a heck of a player."
"It was crazy. Got a little rest; rest always helps. I wish we could've gotten the win the other night but it felt good to go out there and get this one."
"We shared the ball well and got a lot of deflections. When we get a count on deflections, we get out and run. We've got some great shooters on this team and when we can move the ball and get open shots, we can knock them down. Any time we are able to get steals, we can get out to a big lead."
"It's a great way to start the road trip. Minnesota's been playing well with the loss of Jefferson, but we can't worry about who's out there or not out there. We have to try and finish the season on a great note and winning tonight is definitely good."

Anthony Randolph, LSU, 9.85
Yes, this is true. Seen in many quarters as a high lottery pick, Randolph has virtually nothing in his statistical record to justify such a lofty selection.
In particular, his woeful ball-handling numbers are a major red flag. Randolph had more turnovers than any prospect except Beasley and Thompson, but those two players had every play run through them; I'm still waiting to find out Randolph's excuse.
Additionally, his 49.9 true shooting percentage is alarmingly bad for a guy who is supposed to dominate athletically.
He can block shots, and the fact his team was such a mess probably didn't help his numbers any, but gambling on Randolph with a high first-round pick looks like the basketball equivalent of hitting on 19 in blackjack. Hey, maybe the dealer throws out a 2 and everyone thinks you're a genius, but chances are you're going to bust.
It appears he's going to be drafted in the middle of the first round at worst, but even that appears to be a terrible mistake -- there is no track record whatsoever of a player rated this poorly achieving pro success.
