Postgame Quotes and Stuff from warriors.com recap
On tonight's game:
"Our team played the way we had envisioned them playing. All of our guys are back and healthy and our bench came in and gave us the needed energy to help us get back in the game. This is what we thought we could have once our guys got healthy. I’m proud of the way our guys preformed tonight. We talked about limiting our turnovers and I thought tonight we did an excellent job in that area. We’ve been playing good basketball but sometimes that doesn’t show up in wins. Our guys have a great deal of mental toughness to keep working when things don’t go our way, eventually things will begin to go our way."
On getting a key win on the road:
"Sometimes you don’t get the real outcome when you’re playing good basketball because you may not end up with the win. Our team has come out with a great deal of mental toughness and believed that sooner or later that things will start falling into place. I think having the tough games we’ve had paid off tonight, and all we can do is keep working and use this to get better."
On trying to dictate tempo during the game:
"They wanted to pace it down, and we needed to pace it up with what we needed. We wanted to get the pace up in the area of the floor where we’re most effective. Our guys did a great job of getting to the spots where we can run our offense the right way. Teams think that all we want to do is run up and down the floor, but in the end we know where our guys have to be in order to score, and we had to work hard to keep them off balance defensively."
On tonight's win:
"It was huge for us. I don’t know how many we were down going into that fourth quarter, but we really took advantage of that first three minutes and got a ten point lead. For us to kind of squander it and still find a way to get stops and get the win was huge for our morale and our confidence. They’re a slow team and they value each possession. They run the clock and run their offense. If they’re scoring on it, then the game goes at a slow pace. If we can get stops and push in transition and kind of speed them up, it’s to our liking."
On tonight's win:
"We didn’t play a great game, but everybody filled in for everyone else. We did the jobs and finished it out. It was a good team win. The best opportunity we’re going to have is with numbers, now we can wear teams down and can be up tempo and play the way we want to play, knowing that when you get tired, somebody can come in for you."
- This is the first time since 2008 that the Warriors had an entirely healthy roster.
- The schedule lightens up with with a home game against the Cavs, then a short road trip to LA to face @Clippers, and THEN we get into the meat of the homestand.
