Keith Smart
On playing against the Suns' offense:
"We did all we could possibly do. At some point it (defense) breaks down because they space the floor, and normal help positions are not there. But we had some plays where we did scramble and then get out on their shooters but when you've got a team that can space the floor like they can, your normal help coverage just won’t be there just because of them being reluctant of trying to get to their three point shooters because those guys can make those shots. It doesn’t take much. When you also have a great facilitator like (Steve) Nash he’s going to find your mistakes."
Monta Ellis
On tonight's game:
"It was a great game. We gave ourselves a chance to win. We made careless mistakes at the end and they convereted. I think those two free throws I missed was the turning point. If I would have hit those we would have been down just 1 but they didn’t go down."
Stephen Curry
On tonight's game:
"We rely a lot on Monta (Ellis) and myself to handle the ball and get our plays initated. Jeremy (Lin) came in and gave us some great minutes. He got a great steal and kept the game tight."

On geting poked in the eye:
"I was on a roll getting people involed early in the game. I thought I was initating the offense well and getting people involved early so that slowed me down a liitle bit. It took me a while to get back. My vision was fine and had to get the sweat out of my eye. I am not used to sitting early in the game, so that might have thrown my system off, but you have to roll with the punches. Second half I didn’t play well but other guys stepped up and kept the game close."
