    • Jeff Van Gundy: (McGrady) played super hard today. He just doesn't make (shots) at home like he makes on the road. I can't explain it. We don't have an inside presence right now to throw the ball into to keep the defense honest. He's trying to make a lot of tough shots while playing big minutes.

    • Jeff Van Gundy: He's a very good player, it's good to see he could make a full recovery and have as good a year as he's had. With him and Mo Williams on the floor together, when you put two point guards on the floor at the same time, it's very difficult.

    • Jeff Van Gundy: As much as I loved the team last year and still do, when you lose in the first round, you have to make some moves. It's all about the results we get. Hopefully, we're going to get some good results.
