Mark Jackson
On Tonight's Game:
"For some reason...we didn't play Warriors basketball. We started off well and then they separated themselves. They were the more physical team, they took us out of our stuff and they made shots. Just a disappointing outing across the board. But this is a process and we move forward."

On the 76ers energy level:
"They looked like the team that had two nights off. As a former player in this league, that happens. That does not mean you accept it. They played extremely well and they are a well coached team. They have pride, they understand that they are coming off of a loss and they came here with the mindset of beating us and they did."

On the Warriors' transition defense:
"We really felt if we forced them to play half court basketball we were comfortable with our half court defense. This is a team (76ers) that pushes the ball down your throat; this is a team that leaks out offensively and you have to make sure you have five guys back...we did not. We gave up too many points in transition and they got it going."
Stephen Curry
On His Ankle:
"It's getting better. I went through the whole game without an incident. It's a step in the right direction, but it didn't have anything to do with the outcome of the game."

On tonight's game:
"We started off strong, we were up 20 to 7. We had them where we wanted. We knew they had been on a long journey until tonight and we had an opportunity to come out and put our foot onto the gas pedal at that point and we didn't. We let them back into the game and they made a lot of shots which turned into a lot of easy possessions. We can't let that happen at home when we had a chance to go 3-1 to start off the season.It's a disappointment."
Klay Thompson
On Tonight's Game:
"You will have nights like that. You just need to keep playing hard on the defensive end and always keep yourself in the game. We will try to improve on that tomorrow at practice and we face a tough Phoenix team on Monday to get back at it."
