There will be time enough tomorrow to celebrate the offense, worry about the defense, worry about Marvin Williams' back, about Zaza Pachulia's back, about Acie Law's back, and if Mario West is good enough to give his haircut a name. For now, I turn this recap over to those who accomplished something far beyond what I expected before the season started.
"I couldn’t be happier for a group of guys who stuck in there the whole season. Some people predicted we wouldn’t make it to the playoffs, but these guys fought all year to make it to this point. It started back in training camp, this goal of getting one of the top four spots, and it held true. We’ve accomplished that and now we need to stay focused for these last two games and start preparing for the playoffs."Josh Smith:
"Words cannot describe how I feel. Personally for me, when I came into the league we won 13 games, and now being able to clinch the fourth spot is just special. Even last year, just making the playoffs, people were counting us out and saying we weren’t going to make the playoffs this year. But we proved them wrong."Congratulations to the players, coaches, and staff. Next weekend should be fun.
