Keith Smart
On tonight's game:
"Bottom line is we got a win. These guys have been playing good basketball for a segment of a few minutes here and there, and it managed to work out and we got a win. Now we move to the next team."

On Acie Law:
"I told him during a timeout, ‘I’m not looking at you as a new player, we’ve had you here before so I’m looking at you as if you were always with us. I have supreme confidence in you and you’ve done a good job with us last time here.’ He did a good job with managing the game getting a little bit more comfortable with what we are doing."

On Reggie Williams:
"It’s finally starting to sink in. I think with his teammates, not just for him, to know that this kid can play and he can score when he is aggressive and people are believing in him. I believe in him, some of the new players don’t know him they know him from a game here or there. I think he is starting to understand that his teammates want him to do it because he can. They know his ability so we've just got to keep him thinking and believing so when Steph (Stephen Curry) come back he still stays in that role."
Monta Ellis
On tonight's game:
"We finally got that monkey off our back. The bench came in and gave us a ton of energy. We started the game off flat but we stayed together as a team, picked up defensively and made plays."

On the bench's play:
"That’s what we need from our bench. When we are missing a few bodies, a lot of guys didn’t have it tonight. The bench came in and did a terrific job by bringing a lot of energy, made plays and the big guys rebounded."
Dorell Wright
On tonight's game:
"I finally picked my energy up. I felt I wasn’t contributing on both ends of the court. I got the opportunity to get a few easy baskets. Guys were finding me; I was taking shots with confidence. We now get to start our own streak. It wasn’t looking good for us in the last six or seven games. Now we can get back on track. We have a few games coming up that I think we can compete out there and try to get some wins to start a streak going the other way."

On his charity event tomorrow:
"My other number one goal other than having a great year here is getting in the inner city and getting in the community and doing better for these families that are less fortunate. Also, to the single mother home, a great Christmas for them and their families. I am taking them to dinner tomorrow and have gift baskets and everything ready for them. It’s going to be a great event. I’m very excited on having the opportunity to give back and do what I have been taught growing up."

jadande: @samickAOL @gswscribe is #davidleeselbow posing for photo spreads, or are those action shots?
samickAOL: @jadande @samickAOL @gswscribe I asked him nicely if I could follow in MT2's footsteps and take a pic, then immediately regretted doing so.
gswscribe: Don't worry. I got one w/ Chandler's tooth in it. Selling it to #District9parttwo producers RT @samickAOL my DLee pic has fresh blood on it

Notes

- Matt Steinmetz will hold his weekly chat Wed at noon on his chat page.
- From last week's MT2 article, Lou had a hard time catching some passes because of his finger. That would explain some of his dropped passes in tonight's game.
- Though no official word is given, everyone seems to think that Curry will return to action on Sat @Blazers.
- Keith Smart's post game comments further supported the idea that Lou's finger is still bothering him and his catches.


What's next?

- The Warriors get a long 3 day break before heading up to Portland on Saturday to battle the Blazers.
