Warriors at Spurs: Postgame Interviews (1/18/13) by Warriors
Mark Jackson
On tonight's game:
"I was really happy with our team’s energy and effort. We took care of the basketball and competed. We lost to a very good team in their building. They (the Spurs) made plays and they made some tough shots. You have to give them credit. I really liked the way my team competed tough."

On Stephen Curry's Health:
"We don’t know, we’re taking it day-by-day. He’ll be fine. We’re being real cautious with it. We’re just making sure that he’s alright before he comes back."

On the positives from the loss:
"We competed. We competed on the defensive end. We took care of the basketball. We executed offensively. They (the Spurs) made some tough plays. They have a history of doing just that. I’m disappointed in the loss, but at the same time I really like the way my team go after it."
Carl Landry
On tonight's game:
"I think we played well. One area that we’re trying to get better in is limiting our turnovers and we did a good job of that tonight. We didn’t have a turnover until the second quarter. I think the first turnover was a three second violation and the second was an illegal screen. That’s an area we’re trying to improve in and I think we got better tonight."

On the Spurs:
"They’re a good team. We tip our hat off to them. You look up in the arena and they have banners. They’ve been there before and been together for a while. They didn’t have Manu (Ginobili) tonight, but they played well. I think we did a good job of controlling the game for the most part and just late down the stretch we weren’t able to hit shots and execute and they came up with the win."

On Tiago Splitter:
"He’s been playing well. He does a good job of finding an open area and taking shots that he was capable of making. He’s a good defender as well. He runs the floor and seals for early post-ups. He’s a really good addition to this team."
David Lee
On tonight's game:
"I thought we got good shots offensively. It seemed like we were playing a little more up-tempo in the first half and in transition, but I liked the shots that we got. They’re a very solid defensive team and they’re very solid offensively. They just grind you down, so give them credit for doing what they do best."

On the lessons from the loss:
"Unfortunately, we were shorthanded tonight again. This kind of loss is a lot easier to handle than the game against Miami where they played harder than we did for 48 minutes. I thought tonight we matched the Spurs’ intensity. Towards the end of the game, they did what they do best by going to (Tim) Duncan and (Tony) Parker and have their role players do what they do. Give them credit. They played a good game at home. We were shorthanded, but I was much happier with the way our team looked."

On the team's defense:
"More than anything, I think we held down our turnovers tonight. We didn’t give them a lot of easy buckets. Even against Miami, they shot low 40’s percentage-wise. The biggest thing we’ve been doing is that we’ve been turning the ball over and giving up some second-chance opportunities. When we’re at our best, that is one of our strengths, our rebounding. Tonight, we did a pretty good job on the boards and we kept our turnovers down. We just didn’t quite finish the way they did. They hit some tough shots down the stretch."

Interesting Tweets
(during halftime)
gswscribe: Jarrett Jack asked refs if they can play half court.
warriors: The reason behind the delay in the start of the second half ... Crooked rim on one of the baskets.
gswscribe: Because of loose rims, the basket at AT&T center had to be changed, delaying the first half


- Technically, Stephen Curry did dress and was available tonight. We're presuming he would have been used as a decoy had the game come down to a final play.

What's next?

- The Hornets have been on fire - 6 of 7 wins: @Mavericks, Spurs, Rockets, TWolves, @Sixers, @Celtics. So this isn't exactly an automatic win. Basically, we're going to lose.
