Postgame Quotes

Don Nelson
On Tonight's Game:
“Couple of breakdowns at the wrong time. I thought we had the game won. Really was a good game, I told the team I thought they deserved to win it, but we didn’t so we’ll move on.”

On The Warriors' Final Turnover:

“We needed a timeout…I don’t like to call timeouts, but we had a play call that I wanted with the score tied. I wanted Goose (Andris Biedrins) to take the ball out so they couldn’t foul him. Anyway it’s a loss I thought we played extremely well and hard and no problems, but it will be a hard loss to get over.”

Jamal Crawford
On Tonight's Game:
“It was a tough game. Both teams fought hard and tonight we came out on the short end of the stick. We fought really, really hard. There was maybe a couple of different things we could’ve done as players on the court but it was tough loss, a very tough loss”

“We felt like in overtime we came out we played catch-up for the first minute or two and then we kind of took control of the game and we fought, and we fought so hard. We could’ve came out with a win, we deserved to win, but we just came out on the short end of the stick.”

Stephen Jackson
On The Loss:
“It’s no different than the other ones. We just have to find a way to get the win. At the end of the day it’s still a loss. There are things we could’ve done better but we didn’t. Now we got to get ready for the next one.”

Warriors missed Wright's interior defense and
rebounding in the 4th quarter and overtime
