Mark Jackson
On Tonight's Game:
"Tonight was embarrassing. The disappointing part was that we allowed our inability to make shots affect how we defended. We went into the break playing great basketball. And tonight everything we had going for us was everything we didn't have. We missed shots and in this league you don't miss shots. This game was lost at the end of the second quarter. The end of the first quarter we put together a run and got back in the game. But the end of the second quarter, they go on an 8-1 run and they got all the rhythm. That's why they won the ball game. That was the difference. You can't game plan for lack of effort. You can't game plan for turning the basketball over and you can't game plan for second chance points. We got out worked and drilled tonight. This is not our brand of basketball. We'll see what we're made of tomorrow night."
Brandon Rush
On Tonight's Game:
"They just came out with a little more energy than we had. They just played harder than we did. And they had a lot of weapons. (On the team hitting on 3-22 three pointers) That's not us. I think we're one of the best three point shooting teams in the league and tonight was not one of our nights."
David Lee
On Tonight's Game:
"Just a bad game by all of us, all the way across the board. We fought back at the end of the first quarter and almost evened it up. In the second quarter, the last two minutes or so, they made a run and they came out in the third quarter and put the game away. Like Coach said after the game, if anyone thought they played well tonight, they're kidding themselves. (On heading to Atlanta for game tomorrow) This was an important game for us tonight. We have another important one tomorrow in Atlanta. I was very disappointed by the way this one turned out, and we need to correct the mistakes and go get a game tomorrow in Atlanta."

KCsFinest4: Gotta forget about tonight. Atlanta is next


- Stephen Curry DNP because of the strained tendon. He was considered "questionable" before the game started, so they're just being extra careful with the injury.

What's next?

- The Warriors drive their tank over to Atlanta to play the Hawks (20-14) in the first of many back-to-backs to come.
