Postgame Quotes: Downed In Detroit

    HEAD COACH TERRY STOTTS
    On defense
    “It was poor. Brandon Knight did a nice job with the pick and rolls, got to the rim, and made his threes. Kyle Singler got his open looks. Greg Monroe got to the basket so we did not take much away from the things they do.”
     
    On points in the paint
    “That is going to happen. We are not a paint-scoring team. LA (LaMarcus Aldridge) will get there and we will get some offensive rebounds, but our primary scorers, Damian (Lillard), Wes (Wesley Matthews), and Nick (Nicholas Batum) are not in the paint scorers. I do not necessarily expect to win the points in the paint.”
     
    On Detroit’s offense
    “That is what Detroit does well. They made their threes and they are not necessarily a three-point shooting team. They made their threes and they converted on some second chance points but we outscored them on second-chance points.”
     
    NICOLAS BATUM  
    On game
    “We let them play their game. They shot over 50 percent. Anytime you let a team shoot over 50 percent we do not have a chance to win the game, especially on the road. We have to play better defense.”
     
    On playing back-to-back games
    “They played a back-to-back as well but their team wanted it more. They wanted it more than us tonight. We did not battle so we lost the game.”
     
    On personal performance
    “I only took six or seven shots. I did not get the touches I used to have these past two games so I have to work on that.”
