Keith Smart
On the effort on second night of a back to back:
"One thing that this team has shown is that they create a great reputation of how they will compete and play regardless of the back to back or they play a bad game one night—they have shown all year that the effort is going to be there. Even when they are down within the game they have shown urgency to get themselves back into the game. Once you get back into the game it comes down to a little know how and little nuances of controlling the tempo of the game. Now you have gotten yourself back in to just a six point lead and now that quick shot is not necessary and all the drive without vision is not there. Then you get something really good going. And that’s the growth part that you will develop over time."

On guys stepping up from the bench:
"Early on our big guys weren’t playing too well offensively. Ginobili doesn’t slouch on defense and he will make you work really hard for the ball. Parker also has the ability to make you work. You have to catch out higher on the floor, so the help must be in a sooner position rather than a later position. So that is the privilege of having a "1" and a "2" player. Richard Jefferson is also another player. So you take three of our best scorers right away, and they are going to make them catch the ball a little bit out of their comfort zone. But I felt we got that a little bit under control later on. Our bench has played very well over the past few weeks, which has given us the ability to be down by twenty or more and yet get the game close. They always say, "Let’s get it down to seven."
Monta Ellis
On the overall performance of the team tonight:
"We didn’t shoot the ball well at first, but we were still right there in the game. They made some shots; I think they hit every open shot, besides the first quarter. They hit every shot they had; I mean it was just a good ball club. We fought hard to get ourselves back in the game and they just made plays down the stretch. We really just have to stay together, play hard every night, that’s it."
Acie Law
On the Warriors resiliency:
"We can score the ball pretty good. We've just got to finish it out defensively. It’s been a long season and it’s a work in progress. Hopefully we can get better but I mean to your question, we won’t give up, we are going to continue to fight it out."

On playing in a back-to-back tonight: "I’m not going to make an excuse. There a damn good team, one of the best teams in the league, probably going to compete for a championship, we've just got to figure it out. Got to try and finish up strong and go from there."

On the second unit’s performance tonight:
"Our second unit comes in and scraps, just try and make plays, hustle plays, and things of that nature. We were able to do that and chip away, but unfortunately with them being the veteran ball club that they are, they continued to stay with it, didn’t get rattled, made plays when they had to, and won the ball game."
