"In 1992, when I was out of the league waiting for a job, my dad passed away and my wife was pregnant. People will tell you, 'Oh, I never doubted for a moment.' Well, I beg to differ. I'm a man of faith, but there's a human side of you that wants to doubt."

"It was by far the most active I've seen him, ... When he has that emotion, it drives up our whole defense. I tell him every day how much he means to this team."

"I've erred on the side of caution in certain situations, like Jerry, who had an inflated knee. Marquis [Daniels'] neck situation, we're cautious about that for a reason. This particular ankle injury Keith has is not nearly as bad as some of the others."

"Stack was solid, man. Stack was energized. He was ready to play. He was right in his comfort zone tonight. That's what we need from him on both ends. Obviously, he scored a little bit, but nobody will talk about how he battled those guys on defense."

"It's been a pretty fierce competition at center. If today was the first regular-season game, he would be my first center off the bench."
"I think the Mavericks -- our team -- we've kind of forgotten who we are as basketball team and what made us successful. It wasn't shots on the offense. It wasn't holding the ball. We've kind of looked like some of our old teams with one guy pounding the ball instead of ball movement and player movement. We haven't been physical. Is that because we've been fatigued? I don't know. I know we've been a step slow. I can see that -- mentally and physically. We just need to get back to being who we are, and I think that will give us a better chance to win some of these games."

"They made a run. They're a very good basketball team. The second half, they got it within two, and we just suggested 'stay tough-minded.' And we were able to get somewhat of a cushion."

"He's made some improvement, but we don't know how bad it is yet. We just know he's out (Sunday)."
"Dirk is playing tough. We had a stretch there where we kind of reverted back to our old selves and got jump-shot happy for six or seven possessions and I really got on them about that. But I will take this win any way we can get it."

"We'll just take this victory any way we can get it. There's still another level for the Mavericks to go to. We're just not there yet."

"Everybody's not going to play in the exhibition games, so we needed to get some work in. I don't look at training camp being the first week of October. It's the whole month of October."

"The road wasn't too friendly to us the last time. I'm already getting a bad memory. Hopefully, we'll have a better response on the road overall than the last game and give ourselves a chance to win by playing our system. But we've gone back to some basics that seem to have helped us."
