OKC guard Russell Westbrook: "I feel like we went a little cold. We had the game in our favor at the start of the fourth quarter. We just were not able to close it out. I think we just missed shots. Those were shots we usually knock down, but they just did not fall for us tonight."
OKC guard Thabo Sefolosha on whether the Thunder can regroup: "I think we can. We have bounced back a lot of times. We are playing against a very good team. We have to make some adjustments and keep fighting. It is not over yet. We have a lot of basketball to play, and we have to keep pushing."
Dallas center Tyson Chandler: "Big-time game. I'm just proud of my teammates. I think we are all frustrated with different parts of the game. I got taken out of the game early. I never really quite got in the game mentally. I was just frustrated. But as a team collectively, we hung in there. We never gave up on each other."
Dallas center Brendan Haywood: "We knew that if we got stops and could make it close, then we had a fighting chance. When (James) Harden fouled out, we then focused all of our attention on KD (Kevin Durant). That was basically it."
Sefolosha: "I don't know what went wrong. It is hard to talk about it. They just really played tough in the fourth and in overtime. Kevin Durant could not get any open shots, and that was the story."
Haywood: "We really spaced the court. I mean, we really shrunk the court. Jason Kidd was playing center field in the middle of the lane, Tyson (Chandler) was back there. Everybody was concentrating on not letting KD (Kevin Durant) get to the hole, so he was forced to throw deep jumpers without Harden to space the court for him."
