OKC Thunder: Quoteboard from Game 1 between Thunder and Clippers

by Scott Wright Published: May 6, 2014

Thunder guard Russell Westbrook on the hot shooting of the Clippers’ Chris Paul: “I mean, he hit eight 3s. He wasn’t doing nothing crazy. He hit eight 3s. You can’t do much but contest. He hit some tough shots, and we’ll live with that.”

•Kevin Durant on the loss: “A loss is a loss. It’s tough to play that way, especially on our home floor, getting booed by our fans. We never wanna do that. But we always learn from it, move forward and get better from it.”

•Clippers coach Doc Rivers: “Tonight, we just had one of those nights where the ball found the open guy every single time. The second part is you’ve got to make it, and we did that, too. So we just had one of those nights.”

•Rivers on Oklahoma City native Blake Griffin being booed by OKC fans: “I played for the New York Knicks, and I grew up in Chicago. When we played the (Bulls) in the playoffs, what do you think the fans did? The Chicago fans, they booed. Blake is a hometown guy. They love him, but just not right now. I think that’s probably the thing. I have no problem with that. I get that. They have to cheer for their home team, not their home player.”

•Taylor Griffin, Blake’s older brother, via Twitter: “Being from OKC, it’s very strange to come back to see OU and OSU fans coming together to cheer for a team lead by a Longhorn… #LACvsOKC”

•Metta World Peace, via Twitter: “Will OKC get Swept?”
