Tom Orsborn: Drew Eubanks on Wednesday’s play-in game: “I look forward to the challenge, winner take all. We’ve got no pressure going into it. I feel like anyone we play has more to lose than we do, and we have guys resting, so they will be fully charged, ready to go on Wednesday.
Dane Moore: Chris Finch on the Timberwolves last few games, and another loss today: “It’s been disappointing, I’m not gonna lie. It’s been disappointing in our approach… At the end of the day, we’re not a tanking team. So we wanted to finish the season with as much momentum as possible.”
