Postgame Quotes and Stuff from warriors.com recap
On The Fourth Quarter:
"We were able to spread the floor with a smaller lineup and were very effective getting into seams and making plays. The bottom line is we got what we wanted on the offensive end... we lost this ballgame on the defensive end. You give up 118 points and allow them to get a rhythm and open shots, that's not our brand of defense that we've been preaching all year long."
On The Team's Defense:
"We've been giving [up] uncontested shots, we haven't made the adjustments... we made a lot of mistakes all night long. It cannot be accepted, it cannot be tolerated, so disappointed with our overall effort tonight. We were great in spurts, but we don't get paid to play or coach in spurts."
On Facing The Blazers Without LaMarcus Aldridge:
"They're very well coached, and they have pros on that team. They still have weapons on the floor, and we expected a very hard-fought ballgame, but we're disappointed coming out of here losing."
On Motivating Team To Play Defense With Playoffs Out Of The Picture:
"That may be an excuse for other teams, but for us that's not acceptable. We've been defending all year long. The last two games we haven't been ourselves, and like I said it cannot be accepted. We're going to close this thing out the right way."
On The Defense In The Game:
"Both teams didn't exactly play shut-down defense tonight. For those guys, Jamal Crawford got it going. Any time he gets it going it not only opens it up for himself, but with all the attention you have to give him it opens it up for other guys on the floor. That's the reason you can't let him get it going early."
On Getting A Lot Of Points In The Paint:
"That's something we try to make an effort on, is continuing to get the ball in the paint, continuing to drive and not settle for jump shots. A lot of times when we do that it opens up the three point line because the other team has to collapse. I thought we did a pretty good job, especially in the first half, of doing that."
On Staying Motivated To Play Defense:
"We have a lot to play for still as far as pride, but as far as the standings are concerned there's not a lot going on with either team. I think the first bit of laziness that creeps in is on the defensive end."
On Giving Up 118 Points:
"That's embarrassing, but when you let a guy like Jamal get it going, he gets it going for everybody else and it's going to be a long night, like it was. For the most part our team played hard, we just gave up a lot of buckets that were uncalled for. They got a lot of second-chance opportunities tonight and they capitalized."
On The End Of The Game:
"They made adjustments and we tried to get everyone else involved. A couple shots didn't fall but guys continued to play hard and we just didn't seal the deal."
- There is no more Ralph and Tom on KNBR. There is only Tom now.
- Nine games to go. Tomorrow, we get to hear Charles Barkley make cracks at us on TNT. But so long as we tank, we don't care.
