min: Tim Roye's Game Recap
Mark Jackson
On Kobe Bryant:
"He's playing great. Very aggressive, carrying that team offensively and he's their lone play maker. He's playing great but that's no surprise, that's who he is."

On Building On Tonight's Game:
"Well tomorrow night's another game and we get out of here and get ready for it, take care of business. We're on our home court and there's a great opportunity to get a victory."

On The Performance Of Dorell Wright:
"He had some shots and he looked like his old self. Hopefully he can build on it because we need him."

On His Technical Foul:
"I asked for a technical foul because my guys were working their tails off and I refuse to watch them fight and come up on the short end."
Kwame Brown
On Defending Andrew Bynum:
"He's a grown man now. He's grown into his body well. He's a lot more physical now than when he first came in, I just kind of know his moves. It's really difficult when you post Kobe Bryant and you have to take your body off of him because he is so long at the rim so I just tried to keep my body on him the whole time. It allowed Kobe Bryant to go one-on-one a lot more than we wanted him to."

"That was my young fella. I taught him everything he knows. I’m one of the better defenders in the league and we played against each other every day in practice. I told him, If you can score against me, you can score on anyone."

On Being Out-Rebounded By 13:
"It was poor rotations. When you have arguably the best player in the game one-on-one on the block against anybody, it's kind of hard to take your body off Andrew at 7'1" or off Pau at 7'1". If you move your body they walk you under the rim. They have a great scheme going with posting Kobe."
David Lee
On Kobe Bryant:
"A lot of their shots they were making in the fourth quarter were Kobe Bryant fade-aways from 17 feet. That's a tough shot to defend. They got to the foul line a lot, Kobe did in the fourth quarter. He had a very good game tonight but he was really the only guy tonight that killed us statistically. It's tough when he has a night like that."

On Defending Lakers Big Men:
"I think for the most part we held Bynum and Gasol in check...We can take that away but it's about getting stops as a team. It's not about which guy does it. The fact of the matter is that Kobe had a big game and he played well."
Monta Ellis
On The Team's 2-5 Start:
"This is a long season and we have a lot more games to play. We're going to turn the corner eventually. It's just a learning experience right now. I feel great about this team. I love my teammates and we're going to get better every day."

On The Team Missing Stephen Curry:
"We have to go out there with the guys that we've got. He is a big part and we know that, but he's not here right now so someone else is going to have to step up. We just have to stick together."
