Postgame Quotes from warriors.com recap

Don Nelson
On tonight's game:
"You guys know what the two guards did, but I thought Tolliver played a heck of a game, guarded, rebounded and had a chance really to have a pretty good night, and he couldn’t get any shots to go down. Of course, he’s one of my few big guys left, so I thought it was important that he not foul out, and he stayed out of foul trouble and did a lot of good things. I thought Hunter came in and gave us a nice lift with the offensive rebounds, especially the big dunk at the quarter. Team effort, I thought we continued to play hard and try, and that’s all a coach can ask for at this point."

On adjustmenting after falling behind:
"Yeah, we opened the court up. It's good to do that when you’re not very big. And then we had one of our plays that worked, and we just nursed it, ran it all night, changed the catch man a few times, and it was all good. We just basically went with one offensive set the whole second half and a good portion of the first half. We didn’t need to change, they hadn’t stopped it. So we stayed with it."

On Curry and Ellis:
"Oh, it’s great to see. They’ve played some really good games together and of course they’ve played some not-so-good games together. It’s great to see when they share the ball and take care of each other when they’re open. I thought Monta defensively wasn’t very good in portions of the game, but down the stretch, when we put him on the point guard . . . I thought he did a really good job putting the lights out on their point guards. They were hurting us with their open shots and he did a really good job down the stretch."
Anthony Morrow
On tonight's game:
"It felt great man, got that monkey off our back. Guys really stepped up and played well, played a lot of good defense, got a lot of deflections, a lot of rebounds when we really needed them. We held Chris Bosh down a little bit, so it was a good win."

On the 16 made threes:
"Guys making shots makes it a lot easier on Monta (Ellis) and Stephen (Curry). They are doing so well in the pick and roll and they are making that pocket jump shot most of the time. Guys start coming up and helping out and they can find, me, C.J. (Watson) and Reggie (Williams). It’s really just on us to make shots and help them out defensively."
Stephen Curry
On the 16 made threes:
"The fact that there is usually four guys that can comfortably shoot threes on the floor makes it hard for a defense to guard all of them, especially when the same guys can put it on the floor and get to the basket. It’s tough to defend when we are knocking them down."

On the 41-point third quarter:
"We felt like we were still in the game, and we had to scrap to stay in it and get the lead, and especially late in the 3rd quarter you don’t want to let them get a run going. We just dug down defensively, made them take tough shots and got rebounds and pushed it in transition."
Monta Ellis
On tonight's game:
"We just had to get a win. Before the game we said we had to just go out there and have fun and try and get a win. We made plays for other guys, and got everyone involved. It really stated on the defensive end, got a lot of stops, rebounded. They went inside at the beginning of the game and pounded on us, but we got ourselves together and became a scrappy team and got out and ran."

Twitter Fun

Bosh rips Raps: "Its like if you look at the schedule right now and see Toronto, I'm sure people are checking something in the win box. ..."

More Bosh ripping Raps: "... I can understand if we lose the game going down fighting. But we're not fighting at all."

My Notebook

- No interesting notes to add tonight.

What's next?

- No practice tomorrow. Lakers will be here on Monday at 7:30pm (ESPN/CSN), dragging along Faker fans to fill the Oracle.
- Spring Forward time. Don't forget to set your clocks FORWARD 1 hour. That's 1 hour closer to the Lakers game on Monday. Oh wait, that doesn't sound so good after all.
