“We’ve got to keep working. We’ve got to come in with the right attitude, the right focus. Lay in on the line from the beginning of the game to the end of the game. Out-work and out-compete our opponent and hopefully that will give us our best chance.” – Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer on playing without three starters
