Warriors vs. Pistons: Postgame Interviews (12/5/12) by Warriors
Mark Jackson
On the win:
"Great effort. We did a much better job in the second half of playing it out. We defended, but we had some break downs at the end but ultimately we left here with a victory. I would rather learn in winning than learn and losing."

On the team's offense:
"Thirty-nine points is a season high in any quarter. We moved the basketball, we made plays, we were aggressive, but it started on the defensive end. We got stops and then pushed it in transition."

On Stephen Curry:
"I'm sure he had some great performances but what I love right now is he is in total control out there on the floor. When things get crazy there is no need for me to call a timeout because I feel comfortable with his ability to run this basketball team."
Jarrett Jack
On the win:
"We did not do our best job of closing out the game either, but a W is a W and we will take it."

On closing out the game:
"We did not want it to be that way. We just did not do a good job of putting the final nail in the coffin so to speak. We have to do a better job of it. There are teams that are going to be able to come back when we let them linger around and give them confidence. So when you are able to put away a team especially in their building, you have to end it however you can."
Klay Thompson
On the game:
"It was huge. We were so unselfish and we kept the tempo and started playing at our pace. We played a little bit of their pace in the first half. We started the third quarter, we were getting fast break points and getting early offense and we shared the ball really well."

On his shooting:
"I was making a lot of shots before the game and my teammates found me and I just played catch and shoot."

On Stephen Curry:
"Steph was huge. He is such a good playmaker and scorer, so he is so tough to stop. He can draw so much attention and he played liked that tonight. He played unselfish and talked on defense. We are tough to beat."

- No interesting notes tonight.

What's next?

- The Nets will be well rested and looking for a revenge game on Friday. We don't care.
