Warriors at Celtics: Postgame Interviews (3/1/13) by Warriors
Mark Jackson
On the game:
"I give them credit, they defended, but we missed shots. That’s who they are. They’re well prepared, extremely well prepared. Extremely well coached, and they battled. We missed shots, we turned the basketball over. We allowed them to get it going in transition a little bit. And they won the ballgame."

On Boston's defense on Stephen Curry:
"Doc is a heck of a coach and I’m sure he circles Steph Curry in matching up against the Golden State Warriors. So there’s no surprise. I see Avery Bradley went out on a limb and said he wouldn’t get 54 on him. Well welcome to the, everybody else other than the New York Knicks the other night because he didn’t get 54 on them. So with that being said, they played great defense, they battled and they won the ball game. They are playing much better than they were playing early on. I give them credit."
Stephen Curry
On his performance tonight:
"I felt good. I played a lot of minutes but that’s no excuse – you gotta just keep being aggressive. I thought we got a lot of good shots in the second half, it was just uncharacteristic of us not shooting the ball well when we’ve got good looks like that. Credit them – they played good defense in the first half and we stayed in the game. Couple shots fall and it might have been a different outcome. Those extra misses – those long rebounds – led to some easy fast break points for them. It just didn’t go our way tonight."

On trying to get to the free throw line:
"Once the game started, yeah. I knew Avery was going to try to pressure full court and stay by me pretty much the whole time I was out there. So for you to get a step, to just get to the paint, make plays – I think that’s probably the most free throws I’ve shot in a half. I was just trying to be aggressive. Obviously my shot wasn’t falling – I was kind of out of rhythm all night. Just gotta try to come back, get some rest to play tomorrow."

On the team's struggles during this road trip:
"It just makes this next game that much more important. It’s all you can do at this point is try to win this last one before you head home. We have a heavy home schedule down the stretch, so if we can get this next one and kind of make up for these last three games, it’ll be a good feeling for us. But we’re gonna have to fight for 48 minutes and again get ourselves out of a hole that we’ve dug to start this road trip."

On Avery Bradley's defense:
"That’s his reputation. That’s how he helps his team. I knew that coming in, I was prepared for it. When you play heavy minutes it does add on, knowing that you have to worry about him in the back court and trying to get the ball up the court. He’s a great defender and you have to give him credit for what’s he able to do out there."
David Lee
On tonight's game:
"We got some great looks. I thought tonight the game was plyed at the Celtics pace. That’s the way they want to play – we want to play a little faster than that. I thought defensively we really competed well – I thought we did a good job. We competed well on the glass. At the end of the day, though, we didn’t have a great first quarter and we couldn’t make shots to make up for it."

On crediting Boston's offense or blaming the Warriors' offense for tonight's result:
"It’s a little bit of both. They do a great job taking away easy buckets in the paint. Kevin Garnett did a great job fronting me a lot in the post tonight and different guys too. But at the same time I think we got some very makeable shots tonight but we didn’t have our best shooting night."

On the team's struggles on this road trip:
"It’s been a couple strange sets of circumstances. We start the road trip off right – we drop a tough one in Indiana against a team that’s playing great, and then short-handed in New York, we lost that one. And tonight we lose to another good Celtics team. That makes tomorrow night a very important game against a team in Philly that isn’t playing their best ball right now, but is very capable. They’re building. So if we can get that one tomorrow night I think we can still call it a successful road trip considering the circumstances."

On his performance tonight:
"Well, especially with an all-world defender guarding me tonight, I focused on doing what I do best and that’s going out and rebounding the basketball and being active and defending well tonight. I didn’t shoot the ball really well but thought I helped us out a lot competing on the glass and defensively and things like that. I’m just gonna look to having an even better one tomorrow night and end the road trip on a right note."
Harrison Barnes
On what's different since the All-Star Break:
"The level of intensity, the level of physicality – the game has changed since pre-All Star Break. I think it’s gearing up more towards playoff basketball and as a team we have to adjust for that."

On preparing for the postseason:
"No question. I mean, the game has gotten a lot more physical. You see a different look in guys’ eyes. We played the Pacers before, we played the Celtics before and pre-All Star and then post-All Star these teams are completely different. You’ve just gotta continue to get better."

On the blame for tonight's loss:
"I put a lot of it on us. Not to take away anything from them – obviously they played great defense, but we could have executed better and just get our looks. I feel like some guys missed some shots that we usually make, that we usually roll off of. We just can’t let missing shots deflate us."

On the importance of tomorrow's game:
"Very. Anytime you drop one, you drop two, you drop three like we have, you’ve just gotta stop the bleeding, and this is a very important game for us to try to get back on track before we head home."


- No interesting notes tonight.

What's next?

- Must win must win must win must win must win must win. The 76ers have been floundering around, partly because Andrew Bynum still isn't playing yet. Must win must win must win must win must win must win.
