* Ginobili: “Bottom line, they made the shots that they had to make. Fisher from the corner was a huge one. Harden had one from the left wing that was hard on us.”

* Ginobili: “(Their) future is very bright. When your stars are 22 and 23, it's hard to not be very optimistic about their future.”

* Ginobili: “It is impressive what they've accomplished in such a short amount of time.”

* Ginobili: “We've been always old. We've been always criticized for that. We will still compete.”

* Brooks: “Sam (Presti) has done an incredible job of building this team. It's a great group of guys to coach. I'm thankful we have the group of guys we have.”

* Brooks: “I tell (Russell Westbrook), ‘Don't worry about what other people say. You're not their point guard. You're my point guard.' I'm proud of him.”

* Brooks: “It's an amazing moment for (Durant). I was not going to take him out. I was not going to do it.”

* Brooks: “The three wins (to start 2008 season)...there was a lotta lotta work that had to go into it. We've done a good job as an organization. It's not just Sam. It's not just myself. It's the medical team. It's the equipment managers.”

* Durant: “It was exciting. This is our first time on this stage. We knew we had a great opportunity coming into the game to close it out.”

* Westbrook: “This group of guys has been great all season. When we're down, we all stick together and know we have an opportunity to win the game.”

* Westbrook: “At halftime, our guys got together and said, ‘We can still get this win.'”

* Durant: “(Tim Duncan) just told me, ‘Congrats and good luck.'”

* Durant: “Whoever we play...two great teams... we can't rely 100 percent on our crowd. It's going to be tough. It's a great feeling right now, but tomorrow we have to get over it and get ready to play.”

* Durant: “After we started the first quarter, I went and told coach ‘I can go all night. I can go all 48.' I just wanted to play as hard as I can and leave it all on the floor.'”
