Hollins: "I'm very proud of my team and our organization. I am proud of where we have come from, where we are now and where we are trying to go in the future. Even as disappointing and hard as this loss is, we had a heck of a run and we are looking forward to next year."
Brooks: "It is another good step for our organization. Our goal was, just like all the other 29 teams, to win a championship, and we are no different. We know that the process is long and hard and you can't skip steps and you don't get there quickly. To get to the conference finals is a great opportunity for our group of guys that keep working hard and keep believing in the team."
Brook on Dallas: "They have a good team. They will present a lot of problems. We are going to enjoy this one for a few hours and then we will have to get back and look for ways to beat Dallas. We know we have to beat them at their place. We are excited about the opportunity.”
Durant: "I thought at the beginning of the second half we were too anxious. We knew that we had a good chance of pushing up the lead. However, we kept our composure and guys made big plays."
Durant: "I think Nick Collison was the best player tonight as far as helping us get this win. Nick Collison and Kendrick Perkins did a great job of controlling the floor."
Mayo: "I think when Rudy Gay gets back (from shoulder surgery) we'll be a better team. It'll definitely help us on the perimeter as far as scoring and I think we'll be a better team."
James Harden on Kevin Durant: "He was on a mission tonight. Obviously we were at home but I think everyone had it in their eye. We focused on getting stops and winning the game."
Harden on Dallas: "Dallas has a great bench. They have veterans who can shoot the ball. All we can do is to do what we have done all year which is playing basketball, playing our style and going in there and putting up a tough battle."
Thunder guard Thabo Sefolosha: "We worked hard for this. It is well-deserved. We fought throughout the whole series. It is a great feeling, but Memphis did some good things and I tip my hat to those guys."
Randolph: "The series was tough. Every game was a challenge trying to come out and play the right way and be ready to play physically. It's a physical game. We had to be ready to compete for a win. Every game was tough."
