Thunder-Nuggets quoteboard — George Karl: ‘We can't outshoot this team'
Nuggets coach George Karl: “We can't outshoot this team. We need to outplay this team.”
Thunder forward Kevin Durant: “Overall, I think we did a good job of closing the paint. For instance, we put Nene on the free-throw line rather than giving him dunks like we did in Game 1.”

Nuggets forward Al Harrington on why the Thunder dominated: “I can't put my finger on it, because I think we match up well with them. We've got to find a way to get them under control.”
Thunder coach Scott Brooks: “All we've really done is just protect our home court.”
Nuggets forward Wilson Chandler: “Right now, they're kind of playing pretty good, so we've got to do something.”
Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari: “These are two tough losses, especially losing the first one like that, but we cannot allow ourselves to play with this type of intensity if we want to win. We've got to pick our intensity up.”
Karl: “They did a much better job this game of protecting the basket, for the most part. I think early in the game we settled for jump shots. I think we're a team that has to produce jump shots, not settle for jump shots.”
Karl: “This team (OKC) has some great shooters and we have to figure out how to get good shots together. I thought the beginning of the game just offensively shook our confidence so badly with the turnovers and missed shots.”
Gallinari on trying to come back from 43-17: “It's tough. It's especially tough to come back when you're down a lot of points, especially in a playoff series and when you're away. We cannot allow any more stretches which put us down 20.”
