Heat coach Erik Spoelstra on the Thunder: “That's what they do, they keep on coming. They're relentless. They beat us at their game and beat us in a game that's very similar to us when we're playing.”
Heat forward LeBron James: “Whatever the case may be, we had a good game plan to start the game, and the third quarter hurt us.”
Thunder coach Scott Brooks: “Everybody is nervous. You're nervous until that ball is tipped up. If you're not, you don't care about what you do and our guys do.”
Thunder forward Kevin Durant: “This level of basketball is the hardest we play, and we just want to take it slow and take it — like I said — a possession at a time.”
Heat forward Chris Bosh: “Everybody keeps talking about how loud it is. It's regular. We've been in a lot of other arenas, and it's about the same.”
Spoelstra: “Sometimes it's totally dry, sometimes it's ugly, sometimes we have to grind it out. But we do have a toughness to be able to bounce back, and we'll have to learn from this and certainly make the adjustments to their speed and athleticism and effort in areas that we lost today.”
