Warriors at Clippers Postgame - Monta Ellis (3/11/12) by GoldenStateWarriors Warriors at Clippers Postgame - Dorell Wright (3/11/12) by GoldenStateWarriors Warriors at Clippers Postgame - Mark Jackson (3/11/12) by GoldenStateWarriors
Mark Jackson
On tonight's game:
"Things were going smooth, we don't have a history of responding when volume is increased, they battled back and made great energy and effort plays and made it a ball game. I love the fact that my guys settled down, made plays, and continued to get stops."

On losing the big lead:
"You have to give them credit. They went after it and started to make shots and we helped by not being aggressive offensively. But certainly a gut check. When you have a tie ball game and they have all of the momentum, crowd is going crazy and we were able to execute and make plays, this was a big win for us."

On David Lee:
"I am not a guy who thinks ok 2 fouls and your out. No, we needed him in the ball game and I felt that he was ok and he continued to play without fouling and he made a couple big plays for us down the stretch."

On Stephen Curry:
"I just felt it wasn't right to keep him out there. He looked like he was laboring and I told him we were up 17 at the time and that if we lost this game we didn't deserve to win it."
Monta Ellis
On tonight's game:
"It was good. My teammates were in a great rhythm tonight. I was able to find them."

On tonight's game:
"We just need to take it one game at a time. We need to continue doing what we have been doing the last couple of games which is sharing the ball, getting defensive stops, and getting out and running."
Dorell Wright
On playing in his hometown:
"You have to put on some sort of performance when you come home. My teammates found me and I was able to knock down shots."


- From the MT2 pregame article, Curry's last ankle sprain was a separate ligament from the recurring one, so that's a bit of good news.

What's next?

- After a day off, the back-to-back-with-travel attack continues with a bus ride to Sacramento (14-27) and then back home to face the Celtics (21-19) on Tue/Wed.
