Postgame Quotes from warriors.com recap

Don Nelson
On tonight's game:
"[It was] quite a game, quite an effort. If we just keep playing hard, we’re going to win some games here if we keep doing what we did tonight. [We’re] keeping a positive attitude the best that we can. For a team that gets beat too many times, I thought that the guys really came out , played, and shared the ball. I thought we moved the ball very well. We had a chance to actually win the game. I think that [G] Monta [Ellis] missed a couple of layups and a free throw. We would have gotten their attention had he made those. Anyway, how about my D- League guys. Man, are they playing a lot. I think that’s why we’re keeping the spirit up with those guys getting an opportunity. They don’t have bad games. They play every game like it’s a playoff game. I was very happy to see some success from them, and again, they’ve had plenty and they’ll get more."
Anthony Tolliver
On playing for Coach Don Nelson:
"Coach has showed tremendous confidence in my game, and putting the ball in my hands, running the point sometimes…kind of weird. But at the same time, I know I’m a mismatch a lot of the times, especially when we go small and I’m at the five so I use that to my advantage, using my quickness and trying to get to the basket on these bigger guys and try and help my team out."

On playing against All-Star competition:
"I’m learning that these guys are hard to stop. They’re All-Stars for a reason, unless you have a team effort against guys like these it’s pretty tough to stop them. We did a decent job at times tonight as a team against him (Amar’e Stoudemire) and trying to contain (Steve) Nash at the same time, but we had some lapses and that’s when he had his points. Hopefully we can learn from that and go from there."
Chris Hunter
On his injury:
"(My left ankle) was a little bit sore, but it was one of those things were I cut wrong and twisted it a little bit. It was hard to get after pick and rolls quickly and go in the hole, but I still tried to give a good effort and do what I could do out there."

On the play of the team's former D-Leaguers:
"They are playing well, they’re playing with a lot of heart and a lot of confidence and they are looking like veterans out there. Reggie (Williams) is scoring the ball, Anthony Tolliver was playing great defense on Amar’e (Stoudemire) a tough player and he was scoring the ball and doing a lot of things out there so they were doing a great job."

My Notebook

- Chronicle Live - So that's what Rusty Simmons looks like.
- From Chronicle Live, Nellie's "free" year was meant for the Cohans. He wouldn't do it for another owner.
- From the Rusty Simmons recap, the Warriors signed Reggie for the rest of this season and have an option for him for next season. This answers my question that I asked about when I heard Fitz say his show that the Warriors have Reggie up through next season.

What's next?

- We just saw the Grizzlies on Sat, and they're back on Wed at 7:30pm.
- Wed means another round with Matt Steinmetz on his chat page.
