Mark Jackson
On Tonight's Game:
"We defended, we didn't make excuses, and we didn't get frustrated. It was just a great performance overall. We had guys individually that fought it out. It won't show up on the stat sheet but I couldn't be more pleased with our effort on the road."

On Monta Ellis:
"He's gotten frustrated lately because he has been physically abused at times and not getting to the line. But the great players find a way in spite of adversity, in spite of not getting the benefit of the doubt whistle to still gut it out and I'm glad the way he handled it tonight"

On The Second Half:
"Well, we realized that either the conclusion would be that Charlotte, Detroit, and all these teams that we're better than beat us we're not better than them or we'd have to find a way to start winning these ball games. I think the guys felt challenged and first and foremost we are a defensive-minded team. We started to get stops and it affected our offense."
David Lee
On Tonight's Game:
"We made a concerted effort to not only get out of the gate as well but start that third quarter when it was neck and neck; try to make the little plays especially on the defensive end and we were able to do that tonight and we were able to push the lead late third quarter, early fourth."

On Team's Defense:
"When we've played well this year we've gotten victories. That's been our staple; is getting stops on defense and rebounding the basketball. We haven't had solid first (quarter). We haven't done that and we haven't done that well on the road this year. It was something we had to focus on tonight; we knew we had to get that done in order to beat Detroit."

On The Play Of The Team's Bench:
"Our bench gave us a lot of good minutes tonight. Ekpe (Udoh) played unbelievable and so did Brandon (Rush) and so did Charles (Jenkins) and Nate (Robinson). That's what we need on a back-to-back on the road. Starters, a lot of the time are going to be pretty tired and we were tonight. Starters put some good minutes but our bench really carried us."
Dorell Wright
On Tonight's Game:
"Guys came in were very focused. We played well in the third quarter. We got the opportunity to jump on them before they were able to get the crowd into the game or anything. It was very important to win these type of games. Pistons are definitely a talented team with all the guys they have but it was a much needed win for us especially coming off the bad loss we did yesterday. We looked at this trip before we took it as a opportunity to get back on track. With us playing the top teams in the NBA how we've been playing, there's no excuse why we should lose to a team by 20 points after coming off a big game."

Interesting Tweets

(during the game)
Rusty_SFChron: Two nights in a row, Monta Ellis banged his surgically repaired knee. Each time, he's smacked the scorer's table and stayed in the game.

(just for fun)
KCsFinest4 (Brandon Rush): Lol!!


- No interesting notes to add tonight.

What's next?

- We get a day off before continuing on with this 4 games in 5 nights road trip against beatable teams. Remember these starts will be in the midafternoon for us.
- We should be getting Stephen Curry back on the floor on Tuesday.
