Mark Jackson
On tonight's game:
“The thing that was great about tonight was that we did an outstanding job of sharing the basketball. That first quarter – 13 assists – we just made plays. The great thing about it is that you can be unselfish not just offensively, but defensively as well. I thought we really did a superb job of paying attention to the details in sticking with our game plan and executing it. Our starters really set the tone.”

On holding the Pistons to three made 3-pointers:
“You can play great defense against a guy like Brandon Jennings and he can get it going. Last year against Milwaukee we played great defense in the first half, and in the second half he took over the basketball game. It was a combination of our defense and some missed shots. I thought our guys were aware and alert defensively of who could hurt us and how.”

On the Warriors' bench tonight:
“I thought Jermaine (O’Neal) gave us great minutes. I was disappointed with our bench overall. We had 11 turnovers with three minutes to go in the third quarter and finished with 23 – did a bad job of taking care of the basketball. I’m not happy at all with that. They have to be better, they know that and we’ll move on.”

On Andre Iguodala acclimating quickly with the Warriors:
“I think that’s overrated. Go get me five guys in the park that never met each other that know how to play basketball and they’ll figure it out. With our four guys already, we inserted Andre (Iguodala) with his ability to make plays and read situations – you didn’t have to build chemistry, he fit and fit right away.”
Andre Iguodala
On the team's fast start:
“We have high expectations for ourselves and we know what we’re capable of. We know that it’s not going to be handed to us and we have to go out there and improve every night, respond from losses and I feel like tonight was a good response from the last two games. We executed the way we wanted to and we talked yesterday about a lot of things we wanted to accomplish and we did that.”

On the starting five's continuity:
“I think we just complement each other really well with what different guys bring to the table and how they complement the next guy. We’re having fun out there but we still understand we have a job to do and we want to be one of the top teams in the league come the end of April. We’re trying to get ready every game.”
David Lee
On keys to the homestand:
“We talked about that for us to be a successful team, we have to win our home games and go out on the road and win the games you’re supposed to on the road and steal one or two against the really good teams on the road. Tonight, coming back for a home game, this was a pivotal game for us and I thought we took care of business from the jump. I think the biggest difference was we were very unselfish and that really propelled us offensively, and defensively we picked up right where we left off on the road trip and played overall good defense.”

On the starting five's balanced scoring ability:
“You know that’s when we’re most effective, because everyone on the floor is capable of finishing inside, or capable of making a pass and that’s not true of every team but that starting unit of ours, everyone has skills with the ball and can make plays for one another. That’s when we’re most effective; when we’re unselfish.”

On the addition of Andre Iguodala:
“That’s just a compliment to him, how he really knows the game and is great at blending. It would be easy for him to come in here and want to shoot a bunch of shots, but instead he’s very unselfish and you see it with his assist numbers and like you said, he fits right in with the way we’re playing and getting up and down the floor on the half court. He’s been a wonderful addition and that’s the reason we brought him in.”


- No interesting notes tonight.

What's next?

- The Thunder will have played the Clippers the night before, while we will be rested and at home. Hey, maybe we can finally beat a good team!
