Postgame Quotes and Stuff from warriors.com recap
On Tonight's Game:
"We looked at some numbers with us starting off the games and we kind of got ourselves in a little bit of a hole, and yet we managed to keep the quarters close. I think when we can do that it keeps the game close because we’ve got a good little thing going where we play well after halftime. Hopefully it doesn’t come down to that all the time, but I think we built off of something. Our guys came out for this one and played hard and managed to get ourselves a nice little win. We got a chance to play multiple guys in the preseason games… in a game that you have some type of control over and I think we had some control over this game."
On Andris Biedrins:
"That’s what he needs to be - rebounding the basketball, playing care free, with the ultimate of goal of just rebounding. I thought early in the preseason he kind of deferred a little bit. David (Lee) is going to go to the glass…that’s one thing he’s going to do. And he does that very well. And I shared with him that he has to bypass that. He’s got to get to the glass also because if we can get both of those guys rebounding at that rate we’re at right now in the regular season, that is going to help us overall with ‘One shot, done’. I felt like he was back to his old self tonight."
On Rodney Carney:
"He’s going to get better, once he understands how we want him to play and the role we want him in. I don’t want him to settle for just shooting a lot of jump shots because he has more to his game to offer. Putting it on the floor, drawing fouls, getting to the rim, and getting us closer to the bonus…things like that. And what he brings on the other side from a defensive standpoint with his long arms, he can get us in transition but also play against bigger guards so we can take some of our smaller guards off the court."
On Tonight's Game:
"The whole goal from day one has been to get a good rapport with the guys and be a leader, lead by example by how hard I play on the floor. I think we just have a to win more and we still have some more fine tuning to do, but we have some horses to do some great things."
On Tonight's Game:
"Offensively I thought we did alright, we just missed some shots, but in the third quarter we started to click and rolled on from there. Defensively we were still there. You have to take each game in the preseason seriously. We have to continue to get better, but we are looking forward to Wednesday [October 27] when it really counts. We’re ready for the start."
On Not Just Being A Shooter:
"Calbert Cheaney and I have been working on my post play, facing the guy up, shooting the jumper and going to the hole. I have shown that. I do have other aspects of my game which you guys saw tonight, so hopefully I will be able to do it throughout the season."
On How Coach Smart uses him:
"I am trying to feel my way into the rotation. First game I shot a couple of threes and drove to the hole a bit. Now when we don’t have Coach Smart is not putting me in a position to do things that I can’t do. So I am comfortable out there and appreciate him for considering me for it."
