Keith Smart
On tonight's game:
"You have to move on again because you cannot hold onto it. We've got another game tomorrow night. We didn’t come out with the competitive edge that we needed to match them. Those guys have length. [Ron] Artest does a good job of staying down and using his length, and getting up into your body. Then when you try to beat him, they have guys that are closing out and we've got to make some shots. When you don’t make the shots, it compounds a guy like Monta [Ellis] and like Steph [Curry] trying to make plays against that length."

On Pau Gasol:
"He didn’t miss a shot because he does a great thing. He’s a solid pro and he understands if he brings [the ball] down, he’s going to put it in an area where the small guys can get to the ball. He keeps it up nice and high…So it was a great teaching for our big guys to understand that he doesn’t try to go and dunk everything."
Stephen Curry
On tonight's game:
"They’re playing really well right now. The team chemistry’s really great, especially when they’re playing at home. You’ve gotta be on your game and play a little outside yourself a bit, and try and be in the game and we didn’t have that at the beginning. The first quarter they stepped on us hard and we couldn’t deal with it."

On the Lakers' starting lineup:
"They’ve got two seven-footers, and Kobe and Artest, so they really make it tough on you. It’s hard to tell in practice what kind of a look you’re going to see. I feel like we can play with them, we’ve just got to start out a little better."
Monta Ellis
On bouncing back for tomorrow's game:
"We’ve just got to go out and do it. The positive thing is that we’ll be back at home, with our home fans and we know they’ll have that extra energy that we need for tomorrow. I think everybody’s gonna be pumped up since we lost tonight and we’re gonna try and get back on the winning side."

On his injury and status:
"I’m good. It was just my hip, just a bruise. Yes, [I will play tomorrow]."

Interesting Tweets

(after the game)
gswscribe: Monta said he is fine. He has a gym burn on his left hip. He said it had nothing to do with his back and he's definitelty playing Monday


- No interesting notes to add tonight.

What's next?

- We come right back home and throw this unwinnable game away for a back-to-back against the Nuggets.
