Mark Jackson
On Tonight's Game:
"I believe what we witnessed - in this league you think it's over and you begin to freestyle and adlib and all of a sudden you give a team hope and life. When we started that fourth quarter, we could've knocked them out and they would've been ready to play their bench guys and surrender, but we didn't when we had the chance too. They fought back, give them credit. They battled, they got underneath our skin, and we didn't respond individually or collectively."

On The Grizzlies:
"They got underneath our skin and we no longer looked to be aggressive. More importantly, I'm not concerned about anything offensively, we gave up 39 fourth quarter points, we gave up 16 fast break points all of them in the 4th quarter. Those are glaring issues. We gave up ten second chance points in the fourth quarter. We allowed them to take over this basketball game."

On Watching The Team Lose A 4th-Quarter Lead:
"I've been in this league a long time and I've been part of teams that gave away leads and I've been part of teams that surged back and won games. I know how realistic it is to win or lose a ballgame when you are clearly dominating going into the fourth quarter. It's disappointing because we are a team that needed a win; we're a team that was playing very good basketball up until that point. We have to realize you have to play every possession, you can't think 'We're up 16, I can try this behind the back pass' we've got to learn to keep our foot on the gas pedal at all times."
Stephen Curry
On Tonight's Game:
"It's a tough finish. We controlled the game for 36 minutes. The turnovers and rebounds killed us. It was poor decisions by the guys who are supposed to be running the offense. We wanted the win so bad, we needed it. We had control of the game and they started to make a run, we kind of tighten up. No excuses. We needed to win that game."

On Letting The Grizzlies Off The Hook:
"They're were couple of times in the game. One time was in the second quarter when we were up 19 or something like that and we let them back to a 9 point game at halftime. We got back to where we started in the third quarter. Just the fourth quarter we didn't put our foot on the pedal and played on our heels. We made bad decisions."
Dorell Wright
On How He Feels About The Loss:
"First thing that comes to mind is unacceptable. Were up 20 against a good team and you have to close games out, you have to finish games and that's the bottom line. No one is going to feel sorry for you. We have to play a whole 48 minute game. It's not acceptable at all to give up a 20 point lead, shoot 50 percent, turn the ball over 24 times and lose a game. We need to stay together and get better."

On If They Let Their Foot Off The Gas Pedal:
"We didn't finish game, you can call it whatever you want to. We have to get stops when we need them, rebounds when we need them and stick together as a team and play hard. That's the main goal. We're not going to talk about the playoffs or whatever it is. We need to finish games, that's what playoff teams do. Memphis who is a playoff team, play hard, came back and won."


- No interesting notes to add tonight.

What's next?

- If you think you can still get up for another game after the 49ers loss and then this loss, get ready to host the Trail Blazers on Wed as our homestand continues.
