"There were probably three key shots in the later ends that I didn't execute that was the turning point of that game".
"We had one bad end out of 15".
"For the most part, we played a pretty good game", Matt Hamilton said. "We're just going to have to sharpen up a bit for tomorrow to put a few more wins on the board".
The two teams headed to the final end tied 4-4, but China was able to steal two points for the ultimate win. "They're (Finns) sneaky good; they don't make every shot, but they make some interesting ones and they make the ones that count". We played a more aggressive call.
"They've changed the process and with the new process you pretty much need a masters degree in calculus to figure out some of these totals", Morris said.

The official account of the U.S. Olympic team saw his tweet and replied with a picture of Hamilton next to a photo of him with Mario's face photoshopped on the curler's head. "It was so fantastic to see a lot of Korean fans out there".
"I think it's fantastic". He'll have some competition from countryman Samuel Girard, who was the silver medallist at the 2017 world championships.
Olympic curling action is heating up and Friday will give casual fans a look into some important action between the eight countries represented by mixed doubles teams.
"Unfortunately there's not free bingo spaces here", said Lawes.
"They're going to go back and re-verify because they have saved all the numbers and they'll redo the calculations", Stoughton said.
