Postgame Quotes and Stuff from warriors.com recap
On tonight's game:
"It was important for us to bounce back tonight and show everyone that we’re in this for the long run. (Andris) Biedrins stepped up at the last minute and gave us great minutes, rebounding the basketball and playing defense. Our bench did a great job tonight, and 32 assists showed we truly shared the basketball. I knew they were tired. I told them before the game that I’m tired, so I know they’re tired. But that’s no excuse. 6-1 sounds better than 5-2, and that’s important for us, because the good teams finish the course. I’m proud of my guys once again, because we could have used the excuse of being tired tonight. I’m extremely happy about being part of this group. No game for us is going to be easy, but it’s important for us to take them one at a time, do what we’re supposed to do on each side of the basketball, and let the chips fall where they may."
On the 6-1 road trip:
"Having a 6-1 road trip is big for us. We played so well the first five games, and then didn’t show up last night in Orlando. So to come out on the road, back-to-back, when you’re tired, and to play this well, is big for us. Now we can look forward to getting home and playing in front of our own fans. Being on the road this long together definitely brings us closer together, and we help each other find the energy we need to go out and play well."
On playing seven straight on the road:
"We just wanted to have a positive ending to our road trip. We had a slip-up last night in Orlando, and we didn’t want to go home with two losses in a row. We were able to string some stops together, and then our offense started to click, and things just kind of took off from there."
On the team's early season performance:
"We have to come out and work hard each and every game. That will build your confidence. Once you step in between the lines, you just have to play hard. This was a playoff caliber team we played tonight, but we had to fight hard to get a win, and will have to fight hard to continue our good start."
- Festus Ezeli was a last minute DNP because of the right knee contusion suffered in last night's @Magic game.
- Welcome home, boys, and enjoy a well earned 2 days off. The Warriors will hang out on the west coast for the next few games, starting with the 5-17 New Orleans Hornets, um, Pelicans. Yeah, I'm quaking with fear at a pelican.
