Grizz Fans, I got all this great audio after Game 3 at FedEx Forum on Thursday. Matt Noe, who writes the postgame wrapup for us here at 3SOB.com, inserts some of our audio into his post. But there was so much good stuff — and a day to kill until Game 4 — that I wanted to go ahead and post the rest here. Enjoy!
Clippers guard Chauncey Billups talks about how a 10-point deficit to Memphis feels more “like a 15-,16-, 17 point lead. It’s so hard to get back into it when you’re not making shots.”
Clippers Forward Matt Barnes talks about that senseless act of kindness with Zach, and the hug: “Me and Zach are good friends, so he knows I wasn’t trying to hurt him. He knows he’s a big bull and you gotta foul him hard. That’s what I tried to do.”
Grizzlies reserve forward Quincy Pondexter on his big 13 point night and breaking out of the slump: “It’s all about winning. I don’t care if I score zero points or 30, as long as my team wins, that’s all I care about.”
Tony Allen: “I don’t get into all that. . . . I don’t get into the momentum or nothing. It was a good game today for the Grizzlies, we came out with more of a sense of urgency, and our focus is now on Game 4.”
