    HEAD COACH TERRY STOTTS

    "Well obviously the fourth quarter didn't go the way we wanted it to. They picked up their aggressiveness the second half. We handled it in the third quarter. We were loose with the ball most of the night. Some of that was their defense. Some of that was on us but we lead start to finish and it's good to get a win on the road."

    On leaving more happy with the win or mad about the turnovers
    "I wouldn't say I'm mad about the turnovers. We have to clean that up and clean up our decisions. Teams are going to pressure us, so I think it's learning. Like I said, winning on the road is not easy and we needed this one to start the road trip."

    On Aldridge's defense and the block on Rubio at the end
    "Fourth quarter Rubio, Barea and Shved were doing a good job on the pick-and-rolls and penetrating. We weren't very tight on the paint but that possession Aldridge came over to help. A matter of fact, two possessions Aldridge defended really well to take away some opportunities but that was a good read on his part."
