THUNDER PG RUSSELL WESTBROOK

“I've been getting a lot of heat lately. I'm just trying to come out and play my game.”

TNT ANALYST KENNY SMITH

“You saw a lot of great shots, but not a lot of great execution. Both teams were a little shaky in terms of execution.”

TNT ANALYST ERNIE JOHNSON

“UN-BELIEVABLE”

THUNDER COACH SCOTT BROOKS

* “(Russell Westbrook) managed the game as well as any point guard can. We needed his scoring. I know a lot goes into it. The coach and the point guard always get the blame, but Russell has improved every year and every game. He was terrific tonigh. He competed on the defesive end and that's what I really care about.”

* “The advantage we have when we go small is that K.D. is 6-10. His size really helps us. Kevin's a tough matchup for any spot you put him at — two, three or four.”

* “Today was the biggest game of the year. Game 5 will be the biggest game of the year now.”

* “Both teams are good. You don't get to the final eight teams left in the NBA and not be very good. It's two very good teams getting after each other.”

“I think they earned some time off. But even on our days off, guys come in. There will probably be guys on the floor tomorrow.”
