Best Quotes From The Game
"They stayed consistent. They stayed true to their offense. They executed down the stretch," Holiday said following their loss against the Pacers via ESPN. "They didn't hesitate or get nervous when they were down and I think that is something to learn from. Me personally, I think I could have executed better, got some of our teammates in the right places, gotten into better plays. It's about learning. You can learn from every loss."
