New, comments
Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports



"We need points, it's as simple as that. Every game is very, very important. Against division foes and Western Conference foes, they're doubly more important. Four-point games. We're going to have to play a more consistent brand as we go forward. Hopefully, we can do enough to give ourselves a chance." - Randy Carlyle
