Mark Jackson
On Today's Game:
"You know, disappointing loss. You shoot 50 percent on the road you should come out ahead with a win. Put teams on the foul line, turn the basketball over and give up 16 offensive rebounds, it's a recipe for disaster. I understand this is a process but this is a 66-game season and we need to speed up the process. I will find guys that are playing well, competing and executing the game plan, and if that means playing five guys 48 minutes, I will. They will tell me how many guys will play by their performance. Just a disappointing loss."
Monta Ellis
On Today's Game:
"Pretty much all the games are very important. We get off to a great start and games we should win we should win. I feel like tonight was one of those games we should have won. You've got to find a way to get games like this and find a way to win. You can't come out and be down by three in the fourth and then go down by 10 and try to come back and win. No excuses. I was out there and we didn't get the job done."
Stephen Curry
On Today's Game:
"Channing hit a big three and they had two straight possessions where they got buckets and they increased the lead and we had to start pressing from then on. We just needed those stops. These were two pretty high powered offensive teams and they made timely buckets and we needed stops on those possessions and when you get in the fourth quarter, that's definitely where you win games. That was the difference right there."

MSteinmetzCSN: Following are facts & not piling on: Warriors have lost 26 in a row in San Antonio & 15 of past 16 at Staples vs. Lakers.


- David Lee went to the hospital to find out why he felt so sick before the game. No news yet on what he was sick from (food poisoning, virus, flu, etc?).

What's next?

- The Warriors visit their House of Horrors on Wed. We haven't won in San Antonio since the 13th century.
