Warriors vs. 76ers: Postgame Interviews (12/28/12) by Warriors
Mark Jackson
On David Lee:
"I’ve said it before; I’ve got two guys that should be in the All-Star Game. They will never pump themselves up with the way they lead this basketball team, the way they compete and the way they battle. All year long he’s been making plays in the fourth quarter and tonight - eight big points. We ran our offense through him. We posted him up, we isolated him and he made plays. I don’t know where we would be without those two guys closing us out. Tonight, David (Lee) was the best player on the floor."

On Jarrett Jack and Carl Landry:
"They’ve been consistent and they have set the tone for us. Anytime you call on those guys they are ready, prepared, they have an edge, toughness and they bring professionalism. This is going to sound like a broken record; give credit to our ownership and our front office people that a made a commitment and found those guys that made us better. Jarrett Jack and Carl Landry were absolute steals via trade and free agency."

On getting well rounded scoring:
"That’s the graduation of us as a basketball team. Once again, the good teams when you are struggling offensively and when things are not looking like it’s your night – you find a way to help the team. Stephen Curry did it by battling Jrue Holiday, he did it by rebounding, did it by facilitating plays and he did it by holding his head up and leading. That approach is contagious. I’ve seen that in the past as a player, coach and as an analyst – players suck the life out of guys because it is not their night. That’s leadership."

On holding Philadelphia to less than 41 percent shooting:
"That’s a tough team. They spread the floor, knock down shots and they force the tempo. I think all night long we did a very good job of defending, making life tough for them and staying disciplined with our game plan. They put together a run, but we found a way to settle it down and continue to execute. It was another well played game by us."

On matching their play at home with that on the road:
"I believe so. We’ve played some very good teams on the road and now at home. We’ve been consistent whether we are home or on the road. We play with an edge; we play with a belief and now our job is just to chalk them up in the win column. Mission accomplished tonight."
Stephen Curry
On the game:
"We were up 20 in the second half; you want to be able to not let them get it down to five again. We turned the ball over too many times which led to easy walk-up layups. That’s the only thing that really killed us. That’s one thing that I think if we really focused on and just execute our offensive scheme even if we make our shots or not, we would get good attempts and not let them get easy walk-up layups which lets them get back into the game. That’s the only thing we have to fix."

On the team's defense:
"We didn’t score in the 100s. We tried to play up-tempo most of the game but most of the game was half court. So we just had to keep them from getting good looks, rebound the ball and not give them second opportunities, and we would be in good shape. We did that tonight."
David Lee
On the game:
"They are a tough team so we were good to keep the pressure on and we made enough plays at the end to win."

On his matchups tonight:
"I had a smaller guy on me most of the game and then they switched Kwame Brown. I just tried to be aggressive the entire game and when they were helping I tried to make plays for other people. It was a little bit of a tough game for me just because they threw different sizes at me and different kinds of defenders, but I just tried to keep being aggressive."

On the team's offense tonight:
"We had way too many turnovers tonight and not enough assists. Give them credit, they’re a pesky team defensively but that’s not the way we want to play offensively and we’ll have to make some adjustments against a tough Boston team here tomorrow night."


- No interesting notes tonight.

What's next?

- We're right back at Oracle tomorrow night hosting the disappointing .500 Celtics, who got clobbered by the Clippers last night. Gotta rack up all the wins we can to keep pace with the Clippers before we face them twice next week.
