Postgame Quotes and Stuff from warriors.com recap
On His Mindset The Final Few Games:
"Well, I thought it was outstanding effort when you look at the team that we're putting out on the floor. A lot of injuries, a lot of young guys, at the same time I'm proud of the way they competed and battled against a championship team, and found a way to hang in until the fourth quarter when they [Dallas] clearly separated themselves."
On His First Season As A Head Coach:
"I think the most valuable thing is this is something I dreamt about, and it's totally different to dream it and to live it. So, experience is the thing that I will take into the next year. At the same time, playing for so many years, playing for Hall of Fame coaches, there have been no surprises. And I'm fortunate to have an outstanding staff that makes life so much easier for me and a committed group of guys that buy into the message."
On His Ankle:
"I'm good right now. It was just a little tweak, so I'm doing well right now. Our main goal is to finish strong right now. We want to compete out there and battle right now. We're playing with four rookies right now and this is a good learning process for those guys."
On Tonight's Game:
"I think we competed throughout the game against the defending champs. Guys really came in here and played really hard, but the Mavs are a veteran team and they took over in the fourth quarter. You've got to expect that from them. We just need to go out on the court and compete."
On The Team's Injuries:
"We have a lot of guys that aren't playing right now because of injuries and we have a lot of young guys who are getting great experience. We just need to be ready for training camp next season and make that push for the playoffs next year."

That was closer than I'd like our tank to be, but we pulled through.
