Mark Jackson
On tonight's game:
"We responded at half time. We came in at the half disappointed so give our guys credit. We came out on a mission on both sides of the ball. It was a great team win. Our players took the challenge and responded."

On Klay Thompson & Stephen Curry:
"I'm astounded that Klay Thompson is not in the Rookie/Sophomore All-Star game. He's a heck of a player and he's only going to get better. Stephen Curry shot the ball well. He had a good rhythm and he ran the offense. He only had one turnover. He played the game tonight in total control. His stat line is a thing of beauty. It was a great performance by him. It's important for us to win games no matter where we are. We did that tonight and I feel good about that."
Stephen Curry
On the 2nd Half:
"Coach ripped us at halftime about our effort, [we were] a little fatigued, they beat us in transitions and beat us in all hustle plays. He got into us, just to make sure our effort was there. He said if we lose the game and our effort is there, we are playing 100 percent on every possession, he's fine with that. But our effort was just awful so we had to come out and get defensive stops and when we got stops we were able to run and get out into transition and we were able to execute our offense really well and knock down open shots. Our dribble penetration, kick-out game was flowing tonight."

On his matchup with Ty Lawson:
"It felt good that I got a lot of open shots early got my rhythm going and got to the free throw line even though I didn't make my free throws tonight I got to the line by being aggressive so I was just trying to control the game and just push in transition. When we got stops we were able to flow and everyone was able to move the ball around and guys were getting wide open shots. Not saying it was easy out there but we got easy shots because we were moving so well."
David Lee
On defending the Nuggets:
"We did get them in the half court and we did a good job of guarding them but they were leaking out in transition and they were beating us down the court and playing well. We just knew we had to get back and play our game defensively."

On what the Warriors did well and blocking shots:
"Ekpe [Udoh] did an unbelievable job. He had about five in the first half and he set the tone but the biggest thing was when they drove tonight, with the exception of the first quarter they did a very good job, when they drove in the second half we had bodies there and we had guys helping the helper. We kept them off of the boards and when we do that we're going to score enough points to win but it was good that we got stops tonight."

On the motivation in the third quarter:
"Our motivation was that we needed a road win and we felt that we didn't play very good ball in the first half but we were still in the game. We thought we could have easily been up eight or ten at the half. We had an eight point lead and then they made a nice run to end the second quarter so we knew that we kind of got used to the altitude a little bit. That hurt us a little bit in the first half, just being honest, but we came out in the second half and played good team basketball, moved the ball and got stops and ran."
