Postgame Quotes from recap

Don Nelson
On tonight's game:
"What a game to tie the record, huh? Unbelievable. It had about everything you'd want. Somehow we prevailed. We had a big enough lead to sustain it until the end, even though they made a tremendous comeback. This one was special for me, we won by a point. And it sure will be a game I remember."

On the post-game celebration:
"They put me in their circle of hope, or whatever they call that. I've been practicing. I did a little dance for them. I saw C.J. do it one time when he was in the middle, so I tried to imitate him and give them whatever I had."
Stephen Curry
On Nelson's reaction:
"You could tell once the buzzer went off and we won. He was smiling, jumping up and down. He knew how big it was. Even had a little small water bottle dumped on his head. It was fun. He's been in this league a long time so for him to have something to show for it at the top of the coaching ranks, it was huge."

On playing for Nelson this season:
"He's stuck with me and put a lot of confidence in me. In Monta's absence, a lot of guys have had to step up. For me, it's just trying to continue to learn how to finish games, manage games, and keep getting better."
Ronny Turiaf
On Nelson tying the record:
"When he thinks about it 10 years from now in his mansion in Maui, he'll remember that it was a fun game. The man upstairs, the great architect, does everything for a reason. He made for a game that guarantees that (Nelson) will forever remember. He'll remember the young guys out there fighting for him and doing what we could to get him the record."
