Postgame Quotes and Stuff from warriors.com recap
On the game tonight:
“We missed shots but that’s not the reason we lost tonight. I thought defensively we come into their building, they shot 40 percent, very good defense. We did not take care of the basketball, 18 turnovers, 12 assists. We didn’t execute and then they dominated us on the offensive boards, 10 offensive boards in the second half. We knew that they were very good on the offensive boards and also points in the paint. Both of those areas hurt us tonight. It’s a make or miss league, were good enough to defend and win ball games on that end.”
On the Warriors' turnovers:
“We were just out of sync, no excuse. If you’re going to beat a good team on the road, you got to take care of the basketball, you got to rebound. You’re going to miss shots, I’m fine with that. But we’ve got to do a better job closing out possessions. We came in with the mindset to run and they outscored us even in fast break points. Just disappointed overall, good news is we have one tomorrow against another very good basketball team. Looking to get back and hopefully take care of business.”
On losing their 17 point lead to the Cavs:
“I told them all along, even when we were rolling that we had to put this team away. When you look across at the other bench they have a special player in Kyrie Irving – who wasn’t playing well early. I told them ‘he is good enough to carry them at some point’. And he certainly did. I don’t like giving up leads but at the same time, it shows a lot about the character of this basketball team. We are not going to surrender, fold the tent and we’re not going to quit. We buckled down and made the proper adjustments. We separated ourselves – it was a great win.”
On the Warriors shooting performance:
“I told the guys at the end of the day, these are shooters getting good looks: Stephen Curry, Clay Thomson. They’re smart enough to turn it down and make plays but I want these guys to continue to be aggressive on the offensive end and don’t turn shots down. If you’re going to clap when they make open shots, you can’t be frustrated, yelling at them when they miss the same ones. They’re knock down shooters who had a tough night.”
On the Warriors' shooting:
“We talked about it half time. It was kind of a balance. We shot a lot of early threes in the beginning of possessions but they were uncontested, a lot of us walking into it. You got to find the balance between zero and one pass possessions where you’re shooting threes versus getting to the basket, trying to get the ball moving a little bit and those same shots coming back around. Sometimes it is hard to turn down wide open threes even if it’s early in the possession and you’ve missed a couple, but we’ve got to find that balance.”
On the overall performance:
“I think we played well, the score doesn’t say that. I think defensively we did a pretty good job, we’re just undersized down there trying to battle the boards and the paint.”
On defending the Lakers' offense:
“Kobe was aggressive with the ball in his hands in pick-and-roll and he requires a lot of attention obviously but on the backside it’s tough to match up with those big guys who roll into the paint and they always have a shooter. You take a chance with Steve Blake and [Darius] Morris taking those threes in the corner. That was the game plan and we stuck to it, we just didn’t score enough and make enough baskets and clean the glass like we should.”
On tonight's game:
“We got open shots tonight especially from the three-point line, we just couldn’t buy a bucket. They did a good job on the boards taking advantage of the fact that we were short a couple people down low. Give them credit, they came out and played with really good emotion tonight at home under the circumstances. We didn’t shoot the ball well enough. There’s always going to be days like this on the road and we need to do a better job on the boards to counter that.”
On the turnovers:
“A little bit of [the turnover issue] is playing on the road. We didn’t do our best job of taking care of the ball. I think when we weren’t hitting shots early, we tried to do a little too much with the ball and we passed up a lot of open looks to try and be too creative to try and make the perfect play. If we shoot the ball well we have a chance to win this game. If we shoot the ball like we normally do.”
On defending the Lakers' offensive progression:
“They were playing more simple basketball they were running a lot of pick-and-roll, getting Kobe in the post a lot. Gasol didn’t shoot a great percentage but he got up 18 shots tonight, so they did some different things but overall I thought they were a pretty good team to begin with they just had a tough start to the season.”
On matching the Lakers' intensity:
“Regardless of how much emotion they had, it’s the Los Angeles Lakers. They’re obviously a formidable team with or without emotion. We knew we we’re going to get their best shot so we just tried to come out here with as much energy and enthusiasm as we could.”
- No interesting notes tonight.
- Fortunately, there's another game tomorrow, where we can suck just a badly and create a new debacle to replace the memory of this debacle.
