Postgame Quotes from warriors.com recap
On tonight's game:
"At halftime we knew it was a game that was going to be very difficult to win. We were undermanned and we had a couple of guys that we didn’t know (weren’t not going to play). One of our guys was sick and one had a rib problem…At this time of the year most of the guys have been overplayed anyway and it makes it a tough situation."
On Stephen Curry:
"He hurt his shoulder and I don’t know on what play. He has been pretty healthy and he’s been playing tired lately. Actually, it was good to let him sit out the last eight minutes of the game."
On tonight's game:
"We could have kept the momentum that we got in Toronto and did something but they jumped all over us. Their guys were hitting shots and it’s tough to come back from that. Everyone on the Wizards were clicking – McGee came off the bench and had a career night and Livingston having a career night, it seems too often that guys have career nights and break out games on us. Usually we have guys that come out and play but nobody did and they stepped all over us tonight. "
On his injury:
"I hurt my right arm trying to get through a screen on a play and got my arm jammed in there but nothing to serious."
On Coach Nelson:
"We have another chance for Coach Nelson’s record tomorrow. He’s tied for it right now and we have a great opportunity tomorrow in Minnesota to try and get a win and forget about this game."
(after the game)
gswscribe: Monta's blood work came back. It doesn't show anything abnormal. Which means, as far as they can tell, he just has the flu.
- From the AP recap, Stephen Curry jammed his shoulder setting as screen. From Curry's quotes, he said he jammed his arm, but he'll be good to go tomorrow.
- From Nellie's post game and MT2's twitter, the Warriors didn't have shootaround today. Instead, they toured the White House.
- From MT2's twitter, Monta's bloodwork came back clean, so whatever he has is just a really strong flu.
- From MT2's tidbits, CJ bruised his ribs on @Raptors in a fall, X-rays were negative for any fractures.
- Rest? Maybe on the plane ride to Minnesota. A back to back tomorrow @TWolves, 5:00pm.
- Another weekly chat with Matt Steinmetz on his chat page Wednesday. It's usually around noon.
