- Postgame quotes and stuff from warriors.com recap:
On tonight's game:
"Just awfully impressed with our energy, effort and the way we battled. I thought Mo (Marreese) Speights was spectacular. Draymond (Green) was outstanding and Jermaine O’Neal continues to keep the jab in the face of father time. Steph (Stephen Curry) obviously made huge plays. A great win for us. To think that we were minus our two top rebounders and to beat them on the boards says a lot about how we competed."
On Draymond Green guarding Zach Randolph:
"I wasn’t concerned because Zach Randolph is as good a scorer in this league on the block no matter who is guarding him. You can put the best defender on him and he can still get big numbers. All I asked Draymond (Green) to do is what he does every single second of every day and that is compete. He was overmatched, but he’s been overmatched his entire life. Our bigs did a great job of competing against that. That’s all you have to do and then let the chips fall where they may. They competed. Just an impressive win."
On Draymond Green's intangibles:
"If I’m in a foxhole I want him. He doesn’t care. He knows one way and that is to compete, to fight and to battle. He’s be questioned his whole life. He’s not afraid of the moment offensively or defensively. Just a spectacular night for him. This was a guy that when he came into the league people were saying ‘Why is he shooting threes?” and he’s winning ballgames with us knocking down shots and making huge plays on the defensive end. The guy is a tremendous warrior, no pun intended."
On demanding that Stephen Curry had the ball in the final few minutes:
"I’ve done it before, but probably not as adamant. I wanted to make sure that he knew to go get the basketball. That’s not saying something against anybody else, but we knew what we wanted offensively and we wanted it in our best player’s hands. That doesn’t even mean he shoots the ball, but we wanted to force them to make a decision and fortunately he went to get ball and the guy is a superstar basketball player and made incredible plays again tonight. Can’t say enough about hm. The impressive thing about it was they were up 93-86 with everything going their way and we close the game on a 14-0 run and Steph (Stephen Curry) was Steph."
On the final 14-0 run to close out the game:
"It’s nothing new to us. This is who this team is. We were shorthanded with tailor made excuses with guys being hurt and they just battled. If I have to go with a group, I’m going with this group. Just a big time win. They understand that the lights are bright and the pressure is on and we embrace it."
On this being a win:
"Understanding that Memphis is right behind us and these are home games that we’ve got to have to close out the season. All that and especially how the game went, like you said, with four minutes left, down seven, to close it out like we did. Huge win—sets us up for good momentum going into Sunday and we’ve just got to come back and be as focused as ever."
On Marreese Speights stepping up:
"Huge. We always tell him to be ready because obviously I’m sure he wants more playing time. Coach always preaches next man up and that you’ve got to be ready when you’re numbers called. There are going to be times when we’re going to rely on him to win us a game and provide huge minutes, and tonight was that kind of theme. Obviously he didn’t finish the game out but his attitude and the way he played all game was infectious for sure, knowing that he was prepared for that moment without getting as much playing time as he wants."
On defending Zach Randolph:
"Make him take tough shots. You know he’s trying to get to that left hand, which everybody in the league knows. You’re still not going to stop him but you know that. You just try to sit on that left hand and try to make him take tough shots. One thing about Z-Bo is he never stops moving. If the ball is on the other side of the court, he is on the other block wedging for position. Whether it’s a rebound, a swing, a duck-in, whatever it is you just have to make sure you never relax. As soon as you relax he’s going to bury you under the rim and once he gets the ball under the rim, usually it’s going to go in because he has great touch."
On maintaining confidence in his shot:
"I struggled early. It’s just about maintaining that confidence. I think when I hit the first one I was probably 3-of-9 or something up to that point, so it’s just about maintaining confidence. I stay in the gym and work on my shot. I’m going to continue to take the shot and not lose confidence in it. Eventually they’ll fall and we’re able to come up with two big ones. The main thing is my coaches kept confidence in me, my teammates kept confidence in me to continue to throw me the basketball. I owe them that to knock those shots down."
On stepping up as a team:
"We had a good week of practice so we came out today excited to get back out on the court and play in front of the crowd. We knew we were a couple men short and we had to step up so that’s what we did and got the win."
On getting to start:
"I got an opportunity to start so I’m never going to be down on my team or coaches. I’m going to always stay ready whenever my name is called and keep working like I’ve been doing. I got an opportunity to start tonight and made sure I capitalized on it."
- Early in the 1st qtr, Andrew Bogut took a knee from Marc Gaosl and suffered a pelvic contusion that knocked Bogut out of the game. See the postgame videos for the injury.
- If you look solely at the numbers, the Knicks appear to be red hot. If you look closer, they've been beating up on crappy teams during their hot stretch. We're not crappy. We should not lose to the Knicks on Sunday.
