Warriors vs. Nets: Postgame Interviews (11/21/12) by Warriors
Mark Jackson
On Klay Thompson Tonight:
“Yeah it was great to see Klay (Thompson) take and make shots. I’ve said all along, I’m not concerned about Klay (Thompson) shooting. That’s like being concerned about Albert Pujols not hitting; it’s going to turn. He works too hard – it’s a gift. You don’t lose a gift. I’m glad that he shot with confidence. It’s so easy to overlook, but the guy has been defending. Steph (Stephen Curry) wasn’t at 100 percent so I put Klay (Thompson) on Deron Williams, who is arguably the best in the business at his position, and Klay did a very good job. You weren’t going to stop him, but he made him work. That shot is a thing of beauty and it’s great to see him knock it down.”

On The First Quarter:
“I would love to give them credit; they can score on anybody, but out defense was not locked in early. We were a step slow and they were outworking us. We were not on point. At the end of the day, we talked about it and we gave them different looks with the zone to disrupt them and then established our rhythm defensively. We started to get stops and started to rebound the basketball. We talked about it. They were the hardest working team in the first half – and it wasn’t even close”

On His Expectations Of Draymond Green:
“I’m looking for everything from him. I don’t want to minimize him to a defensive guy. He can do everything on the court well. He has the ability to make threes, to rebound, defend and make plays. I’m shocked that he was on the board at 35.”
Klay Thompson
On How He Was Able To Break Out Of His Slump:
“Man, nothing changed. I had a tough four-game set where I had a tough time shooting the ball. I got in the gym and got my shot down a bit. It felt great to come out here and play great. I just stayed with it and didn’t get down on myself.”

On What It Felt Like When He Got His Touch Back:
“It felt like I got my game back. It felt great, I get to build on it Friday and keep this win streak going. We’ve got to stay tough.”
David Lee
On Tonight's Win:
“The biggest thing was that we played a horrible first quarter defensively and after that we did a much better job of playing defense and rebounding. Those are our two keys, if we can do that then I think eventually at home we’ll make enough shots to win it. Tonight Klay (Thompson) and Stephen (Curry) did an unbelievable job. Draymond (Green) hit a big three and a bunch of guys stepped up in the second half. The key once again was defensive rebounding.”

On Klay Thompson's Performance:
“The biggest thing and I said this yesterday in a couple of interviews, if all we worry about is Klay (Thompson) hitting shots and that’s our biggest worry than we’re going to be just fine this season. Once again guys are believing we are going to win games. When we got down in the first quarter and early second we made that run and cut it down to a respectful margin at halftime. Then we came out and our third quarters are always up and down this season but we made the third quarter our best quarter.”

On The Oracle Crowd:
“Like Run TMC, We Believe years? We had an unbelievable crowd tonight, the place was packed. I think people were excited about the matchup tonight. A lot of star power in the building from their team. I think we did a great job of taking our hits in the first quarter and overcoming it and playing a great game.”

(before the game)
Rusty_SFChron: MRI on Richard Jefferson showed a strained right calf. He's out tonight and there's no timetable for his return, according to the Warriors.
Rusty_SFChron: Brandon Rush said he tore his MCL along with his ACL, so he has to wait until Dec. for surgery. He still plans to be ready for '12-13 camp.

- Richard Jefferson DNP on the strained calf.

What's next?

- One more road game against the Nuggets, whom we lost to last time due to overtime brainfarts, then we host the TWolves on Saturday. That will 5 games in 7 nights this week, then 4 days off. If we can pull out a win on either of the next two games, we'd have a winning record in this challenging stretch, which is "not bad at all".
- Have a happy Turkey Day, and a safe Black Friday!
