Keith Smart
On Manu Ginobili:
"He’s been playing that way all year. He’s been playing at a very high level. Getting to the basket, shooting the three and that guy can pull up for a three as well as get to the rim, he’s going to be a tough cover. Then he understands how to cut hard, really cut hard, to force a defense to react to him. He just understands how to play the game, play at a very high rate and that’s why he’s having success."

On The Spurs 15-2 Start:
"They’ve got guys on that team that have been through the wars. I think the one key is that all those guys have been home this summer. They didn’t have national team commitments or things like that and they could focus on getting their bodies together and getting proper rest to get off to the fast start. But they’re good. They’ve been there and they understand how to play." On The Warriors Effort: "I thought we were a little stagnant here and there. I think they’ve (Spurs) done what they’ve done the last couple of years and that’s invite us to take the jumpshot and say we are going to live with you shooting the jumpshot."
Dorell Wright
On The Spurs:
"They play together and buy into the system. Those guys have been playing with each other for a few years now, so they know each other. You can learn something from them as far as the defensive end on how they help and they listen to their coach. You can see it pays off."

"We need to continue to play together and stay together and play hard. If we do all those things we could steal a couple of games that people don’t think we can win."
Stephen Curry
On Tonight's Game:
"You have to play smart and make minimal mistakes because they are going to capitalize. They run their offense so well and have played with each other for so long that they know where to be offensively. When you take out their first option they have their spacing so great that everyone is in the right spot and they move that ball where somebody is going to make a play. Defensively you have to be a step ahead with all five guys."

"I think they are the most efficient team we have seen so far. They run their offensive sets so well. You know it’s coming but you still have trouble being one step ahead to defend it. Their veterans are smart and are going to run it to perfection. But when you get a stop you have to get the rebound."


- Udoh is cleared to increase is activity level, but there's no timetable on his return date yet.
- David Lee in the post game interview says he's still regaining his strength and wind. He said his elbow is still bleeding.
