One. The sartorial stylings of Mr. Alec Burks:
Two. Hubie Brown on Lyles v. Frye: “I give Lyles a lot of credit, because he stood his ground. He didn’t do anything, all right? He didn’t push off. What he did was, he stood his ground, ’cause he’s not gonna allow you to intimidate him, ok, and I like that. I don’t care what they call here, I like what Lyles did.”
Exactly. Good to see a Jazzman standing up for himself.
Trey Lyles on his little scuffle with Channing Frye: I haven’t [ever been head-butted in a game], but you know, like I said, you know, tempers flare and you know, I ain’t gonna hold it against him…Gotta stand my own ground…I don’t think it was intentional at all, what he did or what I did. But you know, it’s just how, you know, the game goes. We getting into it, and you know, tempers flaring here and there, and you know, it’s nothing too big.
Three. Quin Snyder on Shelvin Mack flirting with a triple double, how aware he is of these things during games, and how much he wants these milestones for his players: I’m not aware of them…I guess I’m, I should probably be more aware of the stastistical milestone part of it. If that happens, I’d certainly be happy for him, but I’m not gonna adjust anything we do to get that.
Five. Quin Snyder, asked if it’s frustrating he can’t find more minutes for a productive Trey Lyles: Well, I mean, you want me to tell Trevor Booker I’m frustrated?
Dennis Lindsey on whether Trey Lyles is making a case for more minutes: Yeah, I think he is, but again, there’s a time and place for Trevor and his leadership and his energy and his vertical athleticism. There’s a time for Trey and his spacing and ball-handling and improved shooting.
