On Tonight's Game:
"I told the guys you think that the game was won or lost by Monta Ellis' runner, but that's not real basketball. We didn't execute two, two-on-one fast breaks. We didn't close out possessions defensively and we didn't gang rebound and we allowed them second shot opportunities. We made mistakes and turned the ball over. Give us one of those plays back and we win the ballgame. Those are winning plays and so many players seem to ignore those plays because the one that is shown is the runner in the lane. We lost the game before that."
On how they build after tonight's game:
"It's a process...it's a process. You have to keep on working, keep on preaching. You have to find guys that believe in the message and are willing to do whatever. No need to hold our heads down, we're going to be fine. We've got to make it happen, nobody is going to hand deliver us a win."
On Monta Ellis maybe going too late on final shot attempt:
"That's his read, my only concern in that situation is that they had a foul to give, but once he realized they were playing straight defense I can't be upset with that. He got a great look. The guy is doing everything I ask him to do on both sides of the basketball and he has the ball in his hands and gets a quality look. It's just a tough bounce."
On what coach wanted on the last play:
"We got the ball to our go to guy, Monta (Ellis), we will live with a shot like that, he's made that plenty of times in his career as I've been watching. The ball just didn't go in. Coach wanted to call a play for the iso at top; he got what exactly what we needed but it just didn't go in."
On what keeps them believing that things will turn around:
"We come in and we do what we love to do and that's play basketball. As a team and as a unit we know we can do it. We just have to figure out a formula that works, period. Coach does a great job drawing stuff up, we have to do a better as a team on executing exactly what he wants. We have to continue to keep playing hard."
On defense playing well but offensively struggling:
"Part of that comes from having a guy like Stephen Curry who's not in right now who provides some more scoring from the perimeter for us, makes us deeper as a team. It's frustrating just because we're sitting here 2-6 we can easily be 4-4 or 5-3. I'm going to be really frustrated until that next win. During this losing streak nothing seems positive at this point."
On how disappointing it is losing a close game like this:
"It's very disappointing. Rewind the tape; it's not the first time, the past two games. We just have to find a way to get better."
"We have to take care of the basketball at any point of the game. We have to get better all around; it's just not one thing."
(before the game)
Rusty_SFChron: Warriors PG Stephen Curry will be evaluated tonight by team docs, fly to Charlotte to meet with his surgeon Monday.
Rusty_SFChron: Can't see Curry flying in to play Heat on Tuesday, and ORL on Thursday looks unlikely. He might as well stat in CHA, where GSW play Jan. 14.
Rusty_SFChron: Sounds like original surgery held up, but know more Mon. RT “@chrisburgess87: @Rusty_SFChron Is a second try at the surgery a possibility?
- Biedrins DNP on the ankle. He tried before the game, but couldn't go.
- From the Carl Steward recap, Mark Jackson said he really had to convince the ref to get the technical foul called on him.
- A day off tomorrow, a practice day on Monday, and the Miami Heat on Tuesday. Yeah, we're definitely breaking this losing streak then.

There was some slop, some brainfarts, some highlights, an intense finish, and some calls to start that tank. And you get to pick one player of the night.
