Ben Simmons opens up about his infamous non-dunk, Becky Hammon proves herself right and more from our quotes of the week.
"In the moment I just spun and I'm assuming Trae [Young] is going to come over quicker. So I'm thinking he's going to come full blown and I see Matisse [Thybulle] going -- you know, Matisse is athletic, can get up. So I'm thinking, okay, quick pass. He's got to flush, it not knowing how much space there was. It happened. It happened so quick that you just make a read. And in the playoffs you need to make the right decisions the majority of the time."
