TNT color analyst Steve Kerr: “Dribble. Dribble. Dribble. Got to start moving the ball. There's too much dribbling. You can't beat a good defense by overdribbling.”

Spurs point guard Tony Parker about Tim Duncan's dunk late in the first half: “It's like a vintage Timmy. Serge is going to block shots, but that time, Timmy got the best of him.”

Barkley on Spurs' halftime entertainment, a drummer beating on buckets: “I'm gonna go out on a limb — they're gonna have better entertainment in OKC.”
