Postgame Quotes and Stuff from warriors.com recap
On their 8-1 record coming off a loss:
“That’s who we are individually and collectively. I have no concerns about this basketball team’s ability to bounce back, to win, compete and throw away what happened yesterday. I’m proud of the energy and effort. Defensively, when you hold a team to 36 percent – a team with some weapons. It’s a great win for us.”
On David Lee:
“He’s been great all year. You can pencil in 20 and 10 and then sprinkle in some other stuff around the tree. He’s been that good all year long. I’ve got two guys that have been playing at an All-Star level that should be in the All-Star Game if things continue to go the way they are. David Lee was spectacular; Steph (Stephen Curry) was again spectacular – those are my leaders and they are doing a great job of setting the tone.”
On if he will campaign for David Lee and Stephen Curry to be All-Stars:
“My team will not do anything to chase individual recognition. That being said, my responsibility as a coach and understanding what these guys mean to the success of this basketball team and the impact that they have made to change this culture, they deserve it. I would be doing them a disservice by not leading the parade acknowledging that they are very deserving of it. If it doesn’t happen, we are going to keep it moving and continue to win ball games, but while this mic is in front of me I’m going to let people know how special these guys have been.”
On tonight's game:
“I shot the ball pretty well the last couple of games. You really just have to take what the defense is giving you. The pick and rolls, they were worried about D [David] Lee a lot so they were playing soft on it so right when I got off the screen I was able to shoot off the dribble. It was key in the first half. The ball was moving like crazy in the second half so guys had open looks and thankfully enough they knocked them down.”
On David Lee:
“He had an amazing game. The fact that he can dominate those three areas by making plays on the offensive end with the ball in his hands, whether he was scoring or getting the ball to guys on the weak side, rebounding the ball at a high level like he as the past month. He’s a scoring threat on the low post even with that mid-range jump shot. He had it all going tonight. When he draws attention and is able to get into the creases and make plays and kick out we have to be ready to make shots.”
On the first half:
“They made some good shots. Kemba Walker got off to a hot start in the first half and unfortunately we didn’t do a good enough job in that first quarter but our second unit came in and played a lot better than the starters. And then we were able to make a little run to end the first half and get up to at least seven or nine points.”
“We’re just sharing the ball offensively. I told you the biggest thing for us is defense and rebounding and then offensively we’re just trying to share the ball and with the amount of shooters we had tonight, when I shared the ball guys hit some shots. So just happy to get that [triple-double] but at the same time more happy to get that victory.”
On the team:
“I think we have one of the best records after a loss and that’s huge because it shows the resiliency of this team and like I said, that’s led the way the whole year, our character and our chemistry, even joking around here on the bench at the end, supporting one another; things like that don’t seem like much but they are very important when you have a team like ours.”
On the Lakers:
“Well they’re always a test, I don’t care if they’re 0-100, they’ve got the personnel to be very, very tough and we need to come out and give our best effort. We need a great crowd tomorrow night and we’re really excited for the challenge.”
- According to CSN postgame, Steve Nash will NOT be back tomorrow.
- Bring your energy, bring your noise, bring your focus. Tommorow, we gotta shut up all those Lakers fans that infest Oracle Arena.
