Warriors vs Clippers: Postgame Interviews (1/21/13) by Warriors
Mark Jackson
On Stephen Curry:
"He's an All-Star - we have two of them. That being said, he realized the game got tight and that's what leaders do. Instead of holding your head down you look to regroup and make a play. He certainly did that. Give credit to our big guys, and our guys in general, they set screens and got him open. I thought it was an outstanding effort and I'm extremely proud of my guys. I thought our bench was huge once again. With all due respect, I hear about J.R. Smith and Jamal Crawford, at some point people are going to realize what Jarrett Jack is doing for this team off the bench. It's incredible."

On trying to get Stephen Curry the ball:
"The luxury of having (Jarrett) Jack in the game at the same time is when Klay (Thompson) and Stephen (Curry) are coming off those screens - its pick your poison. Those guys make plays and make plays off of it. It's a simple offense, but it is very, very effective. Definitely when he gets it going like that you want to put the ball in his hands and trust that he will make the right plays."

On Klay Thompson defending Chris Paul:
"He was the primary defender initially, which was the game plan. We did the same thing with Tony Parker and it worked and it was effective. I think his size, his length and his ability to contest and be physical - Steph (Curry) is going to be on him anyway, but I thought this gave him a breather and made them cross-match on the way back on the other end. Now you have to find Stephen Curry as opposed to knowing where he is at all times. Klay (Thompson) did a very good job. That's back-to-back games where he defended two big time point guards."

On if the team is regaining momentum:
"We didn't felt like we lost momentum. We lost to some good teams. I never promised that we were going to go undefeated. We lost to some good teams that are ahead of us or right around where we are. We lost to some in our building, we lost some in their building - those aren't bad losses. The Clippers shouldn't think the momentum has left their team; they lost to a good team in our building. You don't want to overreact to losses."
Klay Thompson
On recently guarding Tony Parker and Chris Paul:
"I just try using my length as much as I can. Those guys are great at getting in the paint and making plays. Two of the quickest guards in the league right there. I just tried to use my length and quickness as much as I can and that was the best I could do."

On taking three of four versus the Clippers:
"This is a testament onto how much we have grown as a team because they're one of the better teams in the NBA, their record proves it. Them, the Lakers and Kings are our California rivals, so we love winning against them. We're a good matchup for them. We have a big game Wednesday so we'll enjoy it tonight with a quick turnaround."
Jarrett Jack
On Stephen Curry:
"When you start talking about elite point guards in this league I think that's one thing that really separates him from a lot of guys. You have guys like Chris Paul who's unbelievable in the pick and roll, [Rajon] Rando who's tremendous at administrating the show and as far as shooting the long ball Steph [Curry] is by far the best at his position. Playing with him on a regular basis I've had a better appreciation for him as a player. Me and my brother were just talking last night, man I didn't know how talented this kid was. It's really a joy to watch him mature and grow into the player he has become today."
Stephen Curry
On how he and Jarrett Jack found success tonight:
"Just staying aggressive. We have a lot of chemistry and Jarrett has been playing great all year. We work well together when he has the ball and I'm coming off screens, and vice-versa, so it's a lot of fun playing with a cagey veteran like him."

On Jack running the point in the fourth quarter:
"It takes the pressure off me and puts the pressure on him. I have a lot of freedom to run off screens and just keep defenses honest. We have a lot of shooters so we want to make sure that they have to guard that, and we're playing great for each other. It's a good lineup, we're going to continue to get better at it. I can play point so we have that in our back pocket, too."

On what Mark Jackson said to the team during the third quarter intermission:
"Actually he said all he had to say when we were playing Miami. We had our heads down, everyone was quiet and we had a big deficit. Everyone on the bench had their heads down, so we remembered that lesson from that game. Teams are going to go on a run. This is the NBA, where everyone is talented, so we had 12 minutes to get it done, we came out and got it done. We kept that belief: no matter what, we're still in."

On winning the season series against the Clippers:
"It means a lot. They're a playoff team, they're where we're trying to get to, and obviously they had the streak this year winning 17 games in a row. They came in with four in a row tonight, so to play well like we have and only drop one in L.A., we're happy about our team's success."


- No interesting notes tonight.

What's next?

- The big bad OKC Thunder head into the arena on Wednesday. If we over-celebrate this win, we'll get demolished. If we forget this game by tomorrow, we'll at least have a chance to win, especially when the Thunder play @Clippers tomorrow night, too. Oh, and see that road trip ahead? Um, yeah.
