“I will say that in my mind, yes, we’re trying to win all of them. That’s a reality. We need, for me, between nine and 12 points to really make (the) playoffs and be a little bit in control of that. Less than that is going to be probably more challenging, right? So we want to focus on the message to the players is just (about) this game, just Orlando. But in my mind, obviously, I have to look at the entire amount of games and try to get the best out of the four.” – Pineda

“We need to win. So, obviously, we’ve got four games left to the season; we’re still alive. So we’re, we’re focused on the result and trying to get three points out there.” – Dom Dwyer

“I don’t think we have any margin for error. So we’re going to try and win every game. We don’t have the luxury of drawing or losing a match at this point. We’ve got to win all the games, and the team has to make sure that we have nothing left, that we give everything that we have.” Santiago Sosa
