Nugget forward Danilo Gallinari: “We have to be more aggressive on Kevin Durant in order to make him take some awful shots. He's probably the best scorer in the NBA, and he was hitting a lot of shots, so we probably have to play even more aggressive on him.”


Thunder point guard Eric Maynor: “All the games are going to be dogfights. We are up for the challenge. We know Denver is up for the challenge as well.”

Thunder swingman James Harden: “We had to adjust in the second half. We were all excited to be back in the playoffs. We settled down in the second half and got some good stops.”

Nugget forward Kenyon Martin: “We've got to try and limit one of those guys (Durant and Westbrook). I thought we did a good job of taking everyone else away.”

Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook: “I just tried to pick it up defensively. Coach tells us every timeout to keep on defending and defending. I just tried to set the tone after halftime. We might have gambled a little bit, but I think it was worth it.”

Nugget coach George Karl: “I do not think we are going to beat this team with shots and execution at the end of the game — we are going to beat this team with stops and penetration.”
