Myles Turner on the Pacers' upcoming matchup with the Nets: "This is one of those games that you look back at down the road and you want something good to come out of it. ... We've gotta stay focused and stay sharp over these next couple days and prepare for it."
Al Jefferson says getting sporadic playing time doesn't affect his ability to contribute: "I can find a way to play a part in the game no matter how many minutes I get."
Victor Oladipo says it won't be difficult for the Pacers to stay focused with the All-Star break approaching: "All-Star Weekend is great, but at the end of the day we have bigger aspirations and bigger goals for this group and this season so we've got to be ready to play."
Nate McMillan says the Pacers can't afford to start thinking about the All-Star break yet: "The strong survive and we want to just keep our focus and show some road toughness and try to go and get Brooklyn."
The Pacers' offense was firing on all cylinders as they defeated the Knicks 121-113 on Sunday evening.
