Pregame quotes:

Hornacek on Barbosa's availability: "I don't think so."

Hornacek on whether Barbosa will get another 10-day contract: "I think Ryan (McDonough) wanted to talk after the game and figure that out. I'm assuming that we'll probably end up signing him to another 10-day contract."

Hornacek on low field goal percentage lately: "A lot of the shots we're missing are open. We're getting good looks at it, we're just not making them. I guess over an 82-game stretch you're going to have periods where you're lighting it up and then maybe periods where you're struggling a bit."

Hornacek on Alex Len: "He's able to play and not have any pain so you can see the energy level is there, he's moving quicker. Now it becomes learning the game...He's got great upside."


Mavs coach Rick Carlisle on the Suns: "[The Suns] are a hard nosed, hard playing team. They are one of the more physical teams in the league. People don't talk much about that. They defend well. They go after rebounds."

Carlisle on how to beat the Suns: "Play better. Shoot better. Defend better. Rebound better."

Let's go!
