On the turnovers tonight:
"That's the big thing. You can't go on the road against a good basketball team and give them extra possessions. That's not who we are and that's not the way we're built. So, we turned it over, we were careless and we paid the price."
On making the run to get back into the game in the fourth quarter:
"That's the positive note. We didn't play well, we were careless, and we didn't pay attention to detail on either side of the basketball. We just were not sharp. That being said, down 15 or 16 with five minutes to go, I thought we showed a lot of fight but we have to bottle what we did during that span and start doing it for 48 minutes."
On Stephen Curry taking over the game late:
"I think he's gaining a rhythm right now. It's a rhythm that he hasn't had. Even though he's putting together a solid season, he hasn't had a rhythm. I think he is close to breaking out. But overall just disappointed, we don't take away individual stuff, just disappointed with our overall play."
On tonight's game:
"No, it was our effort. You could tell in the fourth quarter that we picked it up tremendously. In a back-to-back for us to play that hard in the last quarter in a back-to-back it's frustrating. We need to figure out how to come out stronger, better, and more consistent in the first half. Not have any lows, especially on the road, it's tough to make that run if you have to keep doing it over and over again."
On making a run late in the game:
"You know we had one or two possessions away from taking the lead and had a chance to get some stops and win the game. I think it was a breakaway they had that was an easy bucket and put them back in control. It stopped the momentum a little bit. For the most part I'm proud of the way we fought at the end. It's kind of bitter sweet knowing that you had that effort in the fourth quarter and didn't really show anything in the first three quarters."
On taking over the game late:
"I was trying to be aggressive. The play that was working best for us was the high pick and roll. I was just trying to make plays out of it. That's how we wanted to attack and also make plays on the defensive end. We got to have that mentality for the rest of the season to get to where we want to go."
- No interesting notes tonight.
- You know the Thunder will want revenge against us for Andre Iguodala out heroing Russell Westbrook. So, expect more ugliness.
