Recaps of Hornets loss to ...Quotes from players...
Wrapping up last night's loss to Spurs:
At the Hive
"We tied it up and then Gary Neal hit that three at the end of the quarter. That was a bit of a let down because we know that’s what he does. You have got to close out on him as the hot guy and make sure he puts the ball down. They (the Spurs) just executed. Their main guys stepped up. They guys we were counting on to step up tonight just didn’t have it. If you can hold San Antonio to that amount points you take it. Our shooting and ability to score the ball wasn’t there in the fourth quarter."
Gregg Popovich on the 4th quarter:
"Again, the defense generated offense for us as the game went on into the fourth quarter. I thought Tony was really good in the second half in forcing the issue and I thought Tiago had a great run in there defensively and offensively. The two of them really got us going and that was it. New Orleans work hard. You know they’re injured and they got guys out there going 100 percent constantly. Monty and those guys do a great job with them and they just didn’t have all their pieces and that’s tough."
Greivis Vasquez on getting frustrated with losing:
"We lost the last two games in the fourth quarter. We play hard in the third quarter and then we do not execute in the fourth (quarter). As a point guard, it is hard to fill Chris Paul’s shoes, but I expect myself to be better and that takes a little work. I’m going to get back and work, watch film and see how I can get better. "
