Reggie Williams
On the game's last possession:
"That’s the guy we want to take the shot, that’s who we called the play for and that’s who had the ball in his hands. I felt good about him having the ball, thinking he was going to make it. Monta had the most points tonight. He was on fire, and went on a scoring spurt by himself at one point. He was the hot man. It was just unfortunate that it didn’t fall."

On the close finish:
"We gave ourselves a chance to win it at the end, and you can’t ask for more on the road. We just couldn’t pull it out."

Interesting Tweets

(before the game)
Rusty_SFChron: Coach Smart and Monta Ellis had a fake closed-door meeting before the game, which started with Smart slamming something against the wall.
Rusty_SFChron: They both laughed throughout the skit. In all honesty, I think the real reason for the meeting had something to do with headphones.
(next day after practice)
MSteinmetzCSN: Ws updates: Biedrins not practicing, day-to-day; Curry participating in certain parts; day-to-day; Gadz no practice day-to-day.
