Postgame Quotes from recap

Don Nelson
On tonight's game:
"The force was with us tonight which was great to see. We had such a poor third quarter, and got a chance to have a great fourth quarter. It was great to see Monta [Ellis] come back and compete. He guarded their best player, basically, one-on-one. He got a steal for us, made free throws, and was a big factor down the stretch. It was one of those games where we pulled all of the right strings, made shots, and the force was with us. We were a little lucky too, but we'll take it."

On the team's fourth-quarter adjustments:
"There were a couple of things. We rested Monta and got some life in the open court there, went with two centers at the same time to try to get us an edge on the rebounding. We tried to play with three smalls and two bigs, I thought that worked. I thought that Chris Hunter had his best game as a pro. He's had some pretty good ones for us, it's just that he hasn't had the opportunity to play that much, but if anybody was a big factor in the game he certainly was. I was really proud of him. He had a couple of big blocks and scored, made his free throws. He made one that really counted."

On Monta Ellis & Stephen Curry:
"They had 58 [points] between them. I thought that was good. It didn't seem as if we played with much energy in the third period for some reason. I don't know why, I wasn't very happy with the energy level, but we certainly picked it up in the fourth."
Chris Hunter
On his performance:
"Good to be here, good to able to contribute and come in and help this team win. Worked hard along time to try and get this opportunity and I just want to make the most of it."

"I feel like it was good step for me. I got my feet wet early in the season playing some minutes and I got a chance to sit back and watch and be able to learn more so hopefully I can continue to build on this and continue to bring that energy and help this team win some games."

On playing with Andris Biedrins:
"I think it was good. We protected the basket better than we did in the first three quarters and rebounded the ball better, I think that's definitely what we wanted to do is protect the basket and help the smalls out because they have big guards posting up and we were able to get rebounds, run, leak out and get some fast-break buckets."
Monta Ellis
On the fourth quarter:
"We started running, got stops, made baskets. Picked up the energy and our defense and got rebounds and go out and ran. "

On rest helping him finish games:
"It helps a lot. Coach called me and I was ready, and I went out there and did whatever I needed to do to help us win."

On the team's comeback:
"It was great that they picked it up and got us back in the game, it was fun watching them do it."

On Andris Biedrins & Chris Hunter:
"They were a force. They were blocking shots, getting rebounds every which way, making shots, did everything. At the end Coach (Nelson) went big and we were successful with it. Two guys did whatever it took to rebound or block a shot or help another teammate out and they were running as well."
Stephen Curry
On the comeback:
"We just stayed hungry, stayed active. We never think we're out of it, the last couple of games we have been in the same scenario clawed our way back , but just haven't able to finish it. It feels real good to get over that hump and get a huge win."
