On The Bench Tonight:
"Give that second unit a lot of credit. They did a great job of battling on the defensive end; they really paid attention to the details and elevated the energy level. They got quality offensive trips, even when we did not make shots we got what we wanted out of it. They did a great job of bringing it home and I give my starters credit. I've played in this league 17 years, I've seen where a coach or a team stays with the hot hand, bench, and I've seen star players basically sulk on the bench. My guys were part of it. They were intense, they were excited and they supported the bench and what they were doing so it was a total team effort. I'm proud of them."

On The Reduced Number Of Turnovers:
"We drilled it, we talked about it. This is a process. We talked about second shot opportunities, giving them up and we talked about taking care of the basketball. We also talked about getting back in transition defensively and our guys did a great job of taking care of the basketball. You talk about 26 assists on 37 field goals, it's a great job distributing the ball and then not trying to go for the homerun play. When we did, we made mistakes and we realized it and we made the correct adjustments."

On Andris Biedrins:
"We made a conscious effort starting the game off by getting him the basketball and he did a great job. He was aggressive, he got fouled, he scored and he was all over the floor defensively; putting his body on guys and altering shots. He did a great job tonight and it started right away."
Stephen Curry
On Sitting The Fourth Quarter:
"There are no selfish guys on this team. We understand coach made the decision to stick with those guys. They played well with a lot of energy towards the end of the third quarter and saw matchups they liked. They took the game home for us. They do the same for us when we're finishing games out so we had to do the same for them."
Dorell Wright
On Supporting The Second Unit:
"When we get the starts and are playing well they're out there doing the same thing. Nate (Robinson) does a great job of getting the bench into the game when the starters are in the game. That's what it's about, it's a team game. It's not an individual sport so when your teammates are doing a good job and are picking you up, it's only right to cheer for them. Those guys played extremely hard, kept us in the game and won the game for us. You have to tip your hat to them."

On Tonight's Win:
"Anytime when we play at home it's a must win. These are the games we have to win so we can start our winning streak and get onto the right path. I think we did a lot of good things today. I think those three days off gave us the opportunity to go back to the drawing board as far as getting game plans on the defensive end. Guys came out there and left it out on the floor."
Dominic McGuire
On Playing The Second Unit The Entire Fourth Quarter:
"I think we have great chemistry in the second unit. Everybody comes in, plays hard and plays defense. We know who our scorers are. Ekpe (Udoh) and I try to handle the defensive part and let everyone else get buckets."

On Tonight's Win:
"Anytime when we play at home it's a must win. These are the games we have to win so we can start our winning streak and get onto the right path. I think we did a lot of good things today. I think those three days off gave us the opportunity to go back to the drawing board as far as getting game plans on the defensive end. Guys came out there and left it out on the floor."
