Postgame Quotes from warriors.com recap

Don Nelson
On breaking the record:
"It's such a neat feeling. This is probably why we end up coaching, for moments like this. The one in Toronto was special because it was right at the buzzer, this one tonight we had a lead and hung on. It was a little different kind of a game. The excitement of the team, who were part of this historical moment, makes me awful proud. I told the team that I love them dearly, that they are very special to me but sometimes they don't play like I want them to."

On achieving it with this team:
"You have so much respect for the number now, because wins are so hard to get. You really appreciate how hard it is to win games in the NBA. I don't care if teams are out there winning sixty at a time. They are hard to win."
Stephen Curry
On tonight's game:
"We kind of let it slip a little at the end and we kept it interesting, but got the win for him (Nelson)"

On progression:
"I have just gotten better over the course of the year. I'm staying focused on learning from my mistakes earlier and staying confident"
Corey Maggette
On tonight's game:
"Nellie hasn't really said anything about the record. He just wants to come out there and coach and try to find a way to win games with the people he has."
Anthony Tolliver
On tonight's game:
"It was a really big night for coach and we really wanted to get it for him. He's definitely a players' coach, someone that allows players to do what they can do and puts them into situations where they can succeed."

On his hot-shooting:
"I am very confident and very aggressive when I get going. Coach allows me to do what I want."

Twitter Fun

My Notebook

- From the Anthony Tolliver's post game, that's Sprite and Mountain Dew that they rained all over Nellie.

What's next?

- Four games left in the season, 2 pairs of back to backs with travel in between. The Warriors travel to LA to face @Clippers again, Sat. 7:30pm, then fly back home to face the Thunder on Sunday at 6:00pm.
