Monty Williams on the Bulls defense:

From NBA.com:

"Absolutely. They are a fine defensive team. At the same time, we missed so many shots tonight. In that third quarter, I don’t know how many open looks we had or layups, but you cannot take any credit away from the way that they approach the game. I believe that is the way you play if you want to win a championship. Everyone one on that team knows their role, they have an identity and they live it out every night. I thought we had a tough time with their pressure. They only scored 90 points, that wasn’t the issue tonight it was that we couldn’t throw in the ocean. We got 75 attempts and 19 turnovers. It’s hard to combat that with anything other than something extraordinary happening like somebody score 30 points and somebody else drop 20-25 for you to overcome that. We didn’t have that for sure."
