Mark Jackson
On tonight's game:
“We had some break downs, too many turn overs. My guys-- we fought, they battled, and we lost to a good basketball team tonight.”

On the team's defense:
“I thought at times we were very good and there were times were we can't turn the basketball over that much, they made us paid the price. We knew coming in what we had to do.”
Stephen Curry
On tonight's game:
“There were some bright spots but when you‟re on the road playing against a team like that it thrives off turnovers and easy baskets; you can‟t give them a game like that. It‟s disappointing for me to let my shooting performance be over shadowed by eleven turnovers but it‟s not going to keep me down.”

On Chris Paul:
“He has shown that there are certain situations where he can turn it on. Obviously he‟s a great player and you can't really take anything away from him but when you let him get to the free-throw line that many times, it's tough.”
David Lee
On tonight's game:
“We know how they play; I think we did a decent job in the half court. The way they hurt teams is by capitalizing off turnovers and getting out in the fast break. They had way too many fast breaks points.”

On the Clippers' offense:
“A huge part of it was their ability to get out on the break. They had one time were they had three or four lobs on the break and if that two minute span doesn't happened, we're right there at the end of the game as poorly as we played.”

- No interesting notes tonight.

What's next?

- Strange quirk in the early parts of the schedule: We played the Lakers on their end of a back-to-back. Clippers played us on our end of a b2b. Tomorrow, the Kings will play the Clippers on the Clippers' end of a b2b. Finally, we play the Kings on their end of a b2b on Saturday. So, whatever the heck is going on with this circular schedule logic, we get a chance to make up for the demoralizing preseason loss and smash the Kings on Saturday.
