OKC Thunder's Kevin Durant: 'No moral victories' in loss to San Antonio Spurs

by Jenni Carlson Published: May 29, 2012

Here is a look at what players, coaches, analysts and others were saying about Game 2 between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the San Antonio Spurs:

TNT analyst Charles Barkley: “I think the Spurs are gonna beat ‘em pretty good tonight, to be honest with you.”

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.”

TNT color analyst Reggie Miller in the third quarter: “This is a surgical clinic by Gregg Popovich and the San Antonio Spurs.”

Miller later in the third quarter: “This is how basketball should be played.”

Thunder coach Scott Brooks during a fourth-quarter timeout: “No wasted seconds by walking. We need every second we can get.”

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich during a fourth-quarter timeout: “Don't let up a second. That's a helluva team. Don't let up a second.”

Kerr: “Seems like the Thunder have turned this into a street fight.”
