Postgame Quotes and Stuff from warriors.com recap
On The Loss:
"Give my guys a lot of credit. They battled, hung in there, made big plays. At the end of the day, we have three rookies out there playing a lot of minutes for us. I thought the energy and effort were outstanding. We gave up too many transition points and we turned over the basketball 17 times which is a recipe for disaster on the road. Al Jefferson made big plays and Devin Harris got hot."
On The Warriors' Offensive Game:
"I thought we were very good offensively. We executed, got what we wanted down the stretch - defensively, (the Jazz) made some plays. (Al) Jefferson has made a living on the block and scoring. And Devin Harris hit some tough shots."
On Klay Thompson's Shooting:
"I'm really not worried about Klay Thompson. I know he's going to be fine. He's as good a shooter as there is in this league. He's learning night in and night out. I thought it was an outstanding performance by him tonight."
On The Game:
"Well I think they had two weapons the entire night. Al played a great game inside and the big thing that killed us, it seems like every time it got close Devin Harris, who is a streaky three-point shooter but can get it get going, definitely got it going in the second half and made a bunch of big shots."
On Competing For The Playoffs:
"These are two teams that play hard and we're always it seems going to have to close games against one another and we're always going to compete to the end and the Jazz, whether they're going for a playoff spot, will play that way also ."
On The Game And The Biggest Difference In The Fourth Quarter:
"We were hungry, too, they just made good plays. I mean we tried to double down Al Jefferson because he was hurting us and he's one of the better post scorers in the game so that seemed necessary. Devin Harris did a good job of getting open shots and so did Gordon and we just got to give it to them, they just made plays."
On The Urgency To Win:
"We were fighting, too, and we outrebounded one of the better rebounding teams in the league so that just speaks to how hard we played. They made good plays at the end and executed in the fourth quarter and we got to do a better job of that. We did some good things out there, but made too many turnovers."
(after the game)
GSWFastBreak: Sign the tank has gone to far: I found myself almost cheering for Devin Harris tonight.
gswscribe: TANK WATCH: Cleveland didn't do GSW any favors by beating host Toronto. But the Nets won. Warriors currently sit with 9th-worst record. They are two games behind Toronto, which owns the 7th-worst record, and 2.5 games behind New Jersey, for the 6th-worst record. Eight of Golden State's next nine games are against teams currently holding a playoff spot (counting Denver, in a battle with Phoenix tonight)
- No interesting notes to add tonight.
- The Nuggets are in a fight to stay in a playoff spot. We're in a fight to keep the draft pick. They played tonight. So did we. We both have to travel. We'll be at home on national TV, which may motivate our guys to play hard. Uh oh.
