Mark Jackson
On The Oklahoma City Thunder:
"They have two great players and another that can take over a basketball game. We went in saying we couldn't have those three guys have big nights - they did. And Serge Ibaka did what we've been asking our big guys to do. That being said, a little over five minutes to go it's a ballgame they scored 28 points in the last five and half minutes basically. They have a different motor, they are a different animal and we have to learn to do that. We don't have the luxury to be able to turn it on when we want it. It's a good lesson."

On The Oklahoma City Thunder Style Of Play:
"That's the way they play, that's the way they practice and that's the way they get after it. They are a very good basketball team, best record in the league - give them credit. This was a winnable game for us. We made mistakes, they pounded us on the boards, we turned the basketball over 20 times, they got 19 offensive rebounds and they scored 35 points in the fourth quarter with 58 points in the paint. We didn't do it today."
Stephen Curry
On Matching The Thunder's Intensity:
"They executed the offense better. I think we fought hard the whole game. We just had a lapse in couple of possessions, they got an and one, I think a transition bucket and forced a turnover. I think our effort was there but we just let the game slip away in a crucial moment. They scored too many points down the stretch. We just have to match the energy for all 48 minutes. We just didn't finish out the game."

On Coach's Message To The Team:
"Just keep fighting. He did mention on just matching the energy for all 48 minutes and coming up in big moments during the game. We just have to keep fighting and keep pursuing every possession and not lose faith. He still believes and we still believe. We just have to get on a nice little winning streak."
Klay Thompson
On Defensive Assignments:
"It was tough but that's the NBA. That's what we expected. They have some of the best scorers in the world. We just have to fight. We didn't do enough of that. I kind of think we laid down a little bit but we're going to be working on that. We stayed in front of them but they just hit tough shots. That's what they do. We're going to keep working on the defensive end because that's what wins games."


- No interesting notes to add tonight.

What's next?

- Despite a compressed schedule, we get 3 consecutive days off until Tuesday when Keith Smart and the Kings drop by. Have a good weekend!
- Just so you know, we face the Thunder again here at home in 10 days, on Feb 07. Think we'll play better in 10 days?
