Here is what Howard had to say after the game, courtesy of the Yahoo! Sports post-game recap:
We've been talking for a long time - all we seem to do is talk. You guys know what the difference is. You watch the games. If guys don't want to play, they need to sit down. We just can't have guys or anybody out there not playing hard.
We're professional athletes. This is what we do for a living. If you can't go out there and go hard for two hours, then you shouldn't be playing.
Coach Van Gundy's take on the game:
Down the stretch it was just terrible. When we got the lead we had a couple of careless (turnovers) and it's terrible.
I'm not happy with anything other than Dwight right now. I'm not happy with anything.
