What did you think of Andrew Bogut?:
“He was great. He is a weapon on the offensive end. He has the ability to pass, to defend, to block shots, and make plays. He makes me a better coach.”
Do you think people forget what Andrew Bogut can bring to a game?:
“Not the opposing coaches. They are very familiar with what he is capable of doing. It was great to see him out there on the floor doing those things. He makes guys better, and he completes us as a team.”
How great is it to have someone like Richard Jefferson:
“It makes a difference. That was one of the things we wanted to do last year when we were searching for answers. This year we went and got a legitimate backup guard that is as good as any backup guard in the league. He has the ability to start, he is tough, he can lead, and he is not afraid of the moment. It is great for him to be ready and bring this one home.”
Thoughts on the game?:
“I think we finally got to settle in today. We are only going to get better working together. We had 62 points in the paint tonight, I thought that was because we really focused on going inside and finishing at the rim. I was really happy with the way it went.”
How important was this game after getting beat on the boards a little bit?:
“It was huge to get back into the winning ways tonight and give ourselves a chance to make this into a successful road trip tomorrow night. Another successful road trip is great. We needed this one tonight absolutely. Andrew (Bogut) really helped us defensively, I thought Jarrett (Jack) had a really good second half and Carl (Landry) gave us some big buckets. We got a contribution from everybody and I hope Steph (Curry) is doing okay, it looks like he is going to be fine. We move onto the next one.”
What does Andrew Bogut do for your offensive game?:
“I think they really need to honor him, when he rolls. As we go on our high low game is going to be very effective, just because it hard for teams to help in on that high low because you such good shooters on the wing. It is going to create some more problems for other team’s defences. First and foremost Andrew’s (Bogut) contribution is he anchors our defence and I felt like I became a better defender tonight because he is constantly talking to me, and constantly rotating to get my back and vice-versa.”
Thoughts on having Andrew Bogut back?:
“It was a big help. Dre (Andris Biedrins) did a good job holding down the centre position, but to have the guy we thought we were going to have coming into the season, he showed tonight how he can clog the paint, protect the rim and make plays on the offensive end. It is a huge bonus for us to have him back. He is a presence, you see a big body like that it might deter guys from coming into the paint.”
How is your ankle?:
“It feels alright, same situation I just stepped on someone’s foot and have to see how it responds tomorrow.”
Thoughts on finally being back?:
“Yes definitely. It has been a long season for me so far, a frustrating season mentally and physically. To be out there running up and down the court and especially to get the win, it was very satisfying. I was excited to be out there and play basketball again. It has been a bumpy ride but I think it is at a stage now where I am ready to progress.”

andrewbogut: Thumbs up from me! Good night to all. #itslate http://t.co/ljci5FcP
- No interesting notes tonight.
- We don't know if Curry, Bogut, and/or Barnes will play tomorrow, so we could be short handed against the rested Cavaliers tomorrow. Still I'm expecting a win no matter what.
