“You’ve got to be careful with the quiet ones, right?” [Charlie Villanueva on his post-ejection outburst]

“Did you see Ryan Hollins’ face? Anyone who has ever had a little brother with whom they were competitive will recognize that face. It is a playful version of Jack Nicholson’s “Here’s Johnny!” from The Shining.” [Craig Lyndall]

“Coach Byron Scott bemoans the fact that Hollins just doesn’t rebound like he wants him to. Erden didn’t get a rebound in 19 minutes on Monday. He had five points and was 1 of 5 from the field, 3 of 4 from the foul line.” [Bob Finnan]

Anthony Parker is well aware that tomorrow night’s game in Washington could be his last game in a Cavaliers uniform, and possibly, with the looming lockout, his last game in the NBA.

“Now that there is zero incentive for losing Wednesday’s season finale, the Cavs owe it to their fans to leave everything on the court to close this season with a victory.  It will be the last game of Joe Tait’s career, and the last game of professional basketball we may see in Cleveland for quite some time.  It has been a long, cold winter for Cavs fans – how about we end it with a Springtime victory that sends everyone home happy?” [Michael Curry]

On The Twitters

“Feels weird typing this, but the #Cavs are currently going through their last practice of the season.” [Scott Sargent]

“That game today was too funny….” [Samardo Samuels]

“If I was one of the 300 fans still in The Palace right now, I’d certainly be chanting ‘Let Them Fight, Let Them Fight.'” [Zac Jackson]
