On today's win:
"I have a great group of guys who are very resilient. We didn't start the way we wanted to, but the bottom line is that they scratched, they clawed, they battled and found a way to win a ballgame."
On winning despite defense and turnover problems:
"When you think about 32 points off turnovers, 62 points in the paint, they hurt us on the offensive boards. Not a recipe that we're satisfied with, but give my guys credit. When we needed stops, when we needed to make plays, they did. We're a team that's not going to quit."
On Jarrett Jack:
"It's new to a lot of people, but that's who he is for us. He's been a sparkplug off the bench for us, he's been a leader. He's been a no-nonsense guy with a tremendous voice. He's the sixth man of the year for me."
On what today's win says about the team:
"I think it says we're a good basketball team. I think at the end of the day, the good teams win when they're not their best. That being said, I told my guys we have graduated from the stage when a win is a win. We can't be satisfied with that. We walk out of here with a win, but we've got to do better."
On the bench's play today:
"A lot of intensity off our bench when we had a slow start tonight and they really got us going in the right direction."
On winning when not at their best:
"It's huge. Those are the games that I think are the difference between a playoff team or not. It's easy to get up for a game against San Antonio at home on national TV but come on a Sunday afternoon and first game of the road trip and everyone is a little tired from traveling and it's an early start San Francisco time. We got off to a bad start but we didn't panic and we found a way to come back and win."
On coming from behind to win:
"It's definitely not that way we draw it up. Minnesota does a great job, seems like every time they're getting off to a good start. Their length on defense and the way they fly around and their activity on defense takes a little getting used to. We struggled in the first quarter on turnovers and then again in the third quarter. Give them credit. They played hard and I know they have had a lot of injuries but the guys that were out there playing for them did a great job."
On carrying the momentum from home to the road:
"You would like to have some carryover, that's what the successful teams in this league do. We were able to come out of All-Star break and go home and take care of business. Build up some momentum and you want to have some carryover out here on the road. Everybody knows the most important game on a road trip is the first one."
On winning when not at their best:
"You try to have resolve, some resilience and some fight. But the one thing we respect the most and what coach has been persistent about since day one is effort. Through it all, the turnovers, the missed shots and everything that wasn't going our way we still played hard and that was the thing that really allowed us to stay in the ballgame. Gradually as the game started to turn in our favor it allowed us to pull out the win."

gswscribe: If guys are going to have to earn minutes, as Jackson said, why does Lee have a team-high in minutes? Bad on D and turnovers
Dlee042: @gswscribe Bench us all, good win Warriors LOL
- No interesting notes tonight.
- The Pacers are a team that nobody talks about, with no obvious, well known super-stars, but they're #2 in the East! Add on two days off for them, and we'll need a lot of luck to win this one.
