Warriors at Hornets Postgame Interviews (3/21/12) by GoldenStateWarriors
Mark Jackson
On Tonight's Game:
"It was just a great job of responding. We came on the road and we took care of the basketball, we shared the basketball, and we were disciplined defensively after a tough first half where they dominated in the paint early. We got great effort from guys all across the board. Our young guys in Jeremy Tyler and Charles Jenkins did a great job of giving quality minutes and this is a big win for us."

On What The Team Is Building This Season:
"Toughness. Anybody can high five and hug, and say the right things, and keep unity within the locker room when you're rolling as a team. The true test of a team is when you face adversity and when you're under-manned and going through tough times. Do you begin to point the finger or do you grow? And clearly, this is a team that is growing. I'm proud of them. There have been some bumps in the road, but I'm proud of them."

On Klay Thompson:
"He's a heck of a player, and he's going to be that for a long time. We love and respect Monta Ellis. Part of the reason that made the trade easier is because we had a guy behind him who was ready to play and perform. He's (Thompson) a special shooter, and he's a guy that competes and defends. He has learned to put the ball on the floor and make plays. He's unselfish, which is indicated by his career-high tying assists level tonight. He's just going to be a heck of a player, and he's getting better."
Richard Jefferson
On Tonight's Game:
"We were shooting the ball well and we shared it. It was good. I'm still trying to figure out my way through this offense. The only shots I got are my patented corner threes, and fortunately they fell for me in the fourth quarter to help open things up."
David Lee
On Klay Thompson:
"I think he's doing a great job. He's continuing to take good shots, which is most important, and he's getting better at finding guys when he's getting double teamed. He did an unbelievable job tonight. His ability to shoot the ball makes him special. He's one of the best spot up shooters and catch and shoot shooters in the league right now. Add the feel for the game that he has, and that makes him very difficult to guard."

On Tonight's Game:
"We shot the ball well from beyond the three. I thought we did a pretty good job of switching up between man and zone tonight to keep them a little off balance. We were able to make a couple of runs there in the fourth quarter to pull away. I thought it was a hard fought game and we were just happy to get a road win. We needed a win. I don't care who it was against, at home or on the road, we needed to get a win. This team fought hard for it tonight and we got it."

- No interesting notes to add tonight.

What's next?

- We pop over to Houston (25-22) to try to tank again tomorrow night. The Rockets didn't play tonight. I hope fatigue is a factor.
