Brooks quotes: Said fouls were an issue against the Hawks on Monday, said he likes how the offense is set up great with shooters and screeners for Russ to get dimes, said he didn’t blame Russ for taking the jumper at the end of the game, said the main improvement for today is they have to not foul Trae, said they made too many mistakes on defending 3-pointers.
McMillan quotes: Said they’re not getting enough transition offense (been an issue for a bit), said they got lucky to beat the Wizards, said they didn’t call sets for Hunter in his return, said John Collins was effective on both ends, said they switched to Huerter defensively on Westbrook and it worked out better.
