How difficult is it to play against that small lineup?

“San Antonio had a small lineup. It's about us playing hard and not getting off to a slow start. If we do that, we'll put ourselves in a better position to win a basketball game.”

Kendrick Perkins said maybe because the offense was struggling a little bit that it kind of crept over into the defense as well.

“That happens sometimes in our offense. We're not making shots, missing easy layups and it affects our defensive mentality, but our defensive mentality has to be ready if we're not making shots or we're making shots.”

Did you think Kevin Durant got fouled at the end?

“To be honest, I didn't even see the play. I went to go set a screen for Russell (Westbrook) and I look up and the shot's been shot.”
