On closing the game out:
“We did a great job. Our guys really battled, they defended at a high level. They’re a team that can create matchup problems and put you in pick and rolls. They’re well-coached. At the end of the day we stepped up our defense and down the stretch we executed offensively.”
On the success of Andrew Bogut down the stretch:
“I liked the advantage of them having power forwards on him, and we were able to take advantage of that. He’s a guy who can score and also facilitate, and he makes great decisions.”
On Stephen Curry's overall game:
“I like the way he battled. When it mattered most he made plays, but he’s well aware of the fact that he’s got to be better when it comes to taking care of the basketball. Somehow he makes us a better team and me a better coach.”
On the win:
“We understood what we had to do coming in here. That didn’t mean we were going to win the ball game, but if we were going to lose it, we were going to lose it with energy, effort and efficiency. We did those things and came up with a big win. We came up with a real big win. Again, I’m proud of my guys, and if you haven’t heard it before, we’re not going anywhere.”
On the last two wins for the Warriors:
"Going into the playoffs and going late into the season, we need to be playing at our best. A lot of teams peak early and finish not so great. I think that we’re doing a good job of peaking right now. We’ve had two big wins. We’ve got to just keep it up."
On playing focused basketball:
"That’s what we need right now. We are closing in on the end of the season with 12 or 13 games left. We need everybody to pay attention to detail. Attention is important right now for us. We’ll be in the playoffs. We just have to compete."
On the team's execution and defense tonight:
"Our defense was pretty good tonight. It kept us with a lead. In the second half, I thought that that was one of our better jobs of executing down the stretch."
On the difference in the second half:
"We did kind of a poor job in the first half with (Ryan) Anderson pick and rolls. We got mixed up a few times. He got some open shots. We started to switch them in the third quarter to simplify things. That helped us."
- No interesting notes tonight.
- We haven't won in San Antonio since the 90's. Why is the next game different? The Bogutasaurus, 'nuff said.
