Inside the locker room

Here are some of the best and brightest postgame quotes tonight:

Coach Phil Jackson on the Lakers’ 10-game winning streak: “Oh, we’ll lose. We have a loss coming somewhere down the line. We just have to enjoy this (streak).”

Jackson on the fourth quarter, when the Lakers outscored Utah, 28-6: “That was an amazing quarter. … We were able to apply some pressure. They gave Deron (Williams) a rest out there. We were able to get a little pressure on the ball and get some things happening. (We forced them) into tougher shots, 24-second violations, turnovers and things happened for us. I think once that happened, it kind of just became like an avalanche.”

Utah coach Jerry Sloan on the Lakers’ defensive play in the fourth: “They came out and just destroyed us. We were hanging in the ballgame, but that just shows you what a great team they have — the ability to get up and make us turn the ball over as much as we did. I believe that was time times in the fourth quarter.”

Pau Gasol on what changed for the Lakers in the fourth quarter: “We were much more aggressive defensively. We came up with a bunch of great stops. They were kind of out of whack. They didn’t exectue well enough to get good shots in the fourth quarter.”
