Mark Jackson
On Tonight's Game:
"It was a great job by my guys, and great effort given tonight. We closed out and won when the game was there for the taking down the stretch. I was extremely proud of the way we bounced back tonight. The last three games it has been very important how we've closed out games, and that helped lead us to how we closed out tonight."

On Dominic McGuire:
"Dominic McGuire embodies everything we've preached about from day one. I thought it was important to make a statement and start the guy who has done everything we've asked him to do. I knew exactly what I was going to get from him. Great defense, going after every rebound, and chasing down all the loose balls."

On Stephen Curry:
"A word about Stephen Curry. For him to throw all of his numbers and stats out the window and say 'Coach, if you need me I can go,' to come in to just stand in the corner, that was amazing. I've played with a lot of star players in my 17 years, and I know a lot of guys who would have said, 'Don't put me in and mess up my numbers.' That's what we're trying to build here."
Dominic McGuire
On Tonight's Game:
"I was ready when coach (Jackson) talked to me about starting. Yesterday we got off to a slow start, so it was important tonight to turn that around. Personally, I've just been trying to stay positive and just try to make an impact on the game. He's been riding me pretty hard lately but I love playing for coach (Jackson). I just try to focus on playing defense every game. If I'm out there long enough I'm going to get my rebounds."
David Lee
On Tonight's Game:
"I thought we played well tonight. I thought Dominic McGuire did a great job on Joe Johnson, and he really helped us on the boards as well. He provided us a lot of energy tonight as well. We really scrambled well on defense tonight, and he played a key role in that. We didn't shoot the ball well tonight. I haven't seen Atlanta much this year, but I'm sure they score more than 82 points per game, so they didn't shoot well either. I thought we did a great job and held their guys to low shooting percentages. That's what we have to do."

Interesting Tweets

EkpeUdoh: Great win tonight!!! Got to keep it going!!! Thanks for the support and oh have a nice evening


- Stephen Curry DNP, er, DNS (did not start) on the strained tendon. I think they wanted to give Curry a full week off as recommended by the doctor. He should be back on Friday.

What's next?

- Another tough team on Friday, the 21-14 Sixers, and on national TV, too. I have no idea which Warriors will show up.
