Billups on if he’s talked to Blazers about the play-in race: “I haven’t mentioned it at all to the guys. All I care about is if we are playing good, and the chips will fall where they may. I don’t talk about that to the guys at all. I just think that adds stress and pressure.” – 8:38 PM

Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
“He’s done a lot of work the last few years. To see him have this kind of opportunity is fantastic.” – Coach Pop on Drew Eubanks’ play with the Blazers – 8:33 PM

Not sure the last time Detroit led a team by 20 points, but, unlike what happened the other night against Portland, this is how you handle a team that played the night before. – 8:27 PM
