Postgame Quotes and Stuff from warriors.com recap
On tonight's game:
"We didn’t have the necessary energy that we needed to play at a very high level tonight. So we’ll move on to the next game. You see the Hawks athleticism on television. They play at a high level, they’re battle tested, and they’ve gone through wars. I think not having enough size hurt us tonight. Nevertheless, we were in the game for long periods of time, but quick shots and turnovers cost us."
"Another thing that hurt us tonight was turnovers, and the time they happened. In addition one time we took five straight jump shots on five possessions, and we turned the ball over twice as well. The timing of the offensive rebounds and turnovers is what hurt us most."
On play of Monta Ellis, Stephen Curry and Dorell Wright:
"Some nights (Monta's) just not going to have it. Guarding bigger guys will take some of his energy on nights like this. But Dorell (Wright) played well. But Stephen Curry being out for a long time hurt him with his conditioning. It’s like pre-training camp all over again. They’ll get there, but I think we’ll be on a positive note by the end of the road trip."
On tonight's game:
"We made a few mistakes, but we were still in the game and had a chance to win. They hit a couple of shots at the end of the game. I wouldn’t contribute it to a lack of energy. They just made a few plays at the end of the game. Dorell played wonderful tonight and had a double-double. We just didn’t give him any help tonight. We have to have more of a team effort. Even when our shots don’t fall, we have to do the little things."
On his performance:
"It was important for me to pick up for those guys. I was hot. They kept going to me, and they kept finding me. The Hawks jump all over the place. Usually it’s one guy you have to worry about, but tonight we had to worry about several. We just came up short. That’s all."
On tonight's game:
"I tried to fight though my sickness and push the tempo. Coach did a good job managing my minutes so I would have enough left for the fourth quarter. Atlanta is really patient, and they forced us to make decisions and while we tried to force them to shoot some tough shots with the shot clock winding down, (Mike) Bibby made a couple of big ones for them."

gswscribe: If only Dorell Wright had some help tonight ...
heimy25: @gswscribe Before this season started, did you ever think you'd be saying that?
gswscribe: Never! Lol RT @heimy25: Before this season started, did you ever think you'd be saying that?
- David Lee's elbow still "looks" bad, but "feels" better, almost no pain. He does not yet have full strength on the arm though.
- Stephen Curry was playing through flu-like symptoms. He said it might have set his conditioning status back a little bit.
- The next game @Bobcats will close out the calendar year of 2010. Be aware that the game starts at NOON, Pacific time.
