On mixing up the lines throughout the night...
"In the game tonight, you saw a lot of guys playing with different players. We did that on purpose tonight based on who was playing well."

"They didn't hand it to us tonight. We had to work for a lot of our goals. A lot of our stuff came from hard-fought plays that we had to create."
