Mark Jackson
On The Final Shot Attempt For The Warriors:
"We didn't have a lot of time, but Nate [Robinson] was getting wherever he wanted to on the floor. It was a high pick-and-roll and he came off and had options around the court with shooters with Steph [Stephen Curry], Klay [Thompson], Brandon [Rush] and even David [Lee] - so we did get what we wanted."

On If The Final Shot Would Have Counted:
"No, I didn't see it other than live, but I don't think it would've counted. Our video guys said it wouldn't have counted."

On Playing Against An Injured Blazers Team
"We knew coming in this was a very good basketball team, with veterans. It's not like they were starting clowns as substitutes, those are proven guys. Give them credit. They went small; Gerald Wallace at the four and it hurt us. Certainly, when you say 'They don't have their best player' you want to win, in your own building after they played last night, but I can't fault the effort, other than giving up 37 points in the second quarter - we gave up 36 in the second half. We made the adjustments, we battled and there were times we had an opportunity to close them out and they made a couple of dagger threes with the clock dwindling down that really hurt. A tough loss, but we move forward."

On Monta Ellis Not Playing In The Fourth Quarter
"It really wasn't a decision due to anything other than the fact he wasn't feeling well all day long. During shoot around this morning, he really didn't participate in it and I didn't want him- I almost sent him home, told him to go home. He's a gamer, he's a leader and he stayed. He was in and out, and today during the game, give him credit, he gave me everything he had and came in the back for a second and then when he came to the bench I asked him early in the fourth 'Are you OK?' and he said 'Yes'. I guess it was a read for me, it wasn't a normal Monta Ellis 'Yes', he really wanted it but I just made a decision that it was best to shut him down. Nate [Robinson] was playing well, but that doesn't matter. In a normal situation, I'm going back to Monta Ellis whether it be for Nate [Robinson] - but I just made a decision that he was not 100 percent."
Stephen Curry
On The Last Possession:
"We had no time outs and we had to advance from full court so we had to space the court as fast as possible. Nate (Robinson) tried to make a play and split the defense and we didn't get the shot off in time. It was a tough situation where you have four seconds to go the full length of the court and it didn't work out."

On Not Taking Advantage Of Lamarcus Aldridge Being Out:
"It's disappointing for sure, you have a chance to go 3-0 on your home stand, to finish it out and make some more progress to crack into the eighth spot. It's disappointing but now we have the opportunity to beat two good teams in Memphis and Oklahoma City. Looking forward to that, hopefully we get better from tonight."
David Lee
On The Last Possession:
"It was actually a pretty good play call. Nate (Robinson) got into the open floor, from where we were, we knew we had to get it to a guard. I ran a flat screen to have me rolling or Nate (Robinson) coming off it, just depended on how they played it we had three point shooters in either corner. It looked as though he held onto Nate's (Robinson) arm when he came off, but if the play had been a success it would've been my man and his man collapsing on Nate (Robinson). Kick to the corner, (Brandon) Rush, the best three point shooter in the NBA would've had an open three to win the game. Unfortunately we bobbled the ball."


- No interesting notes to add tonight.

What's next?

- We bring our one game losing streak on the road to OKC and Memphis, back to back, and turn this into a 3-game losing streak.
