It had to be exciting, didn't it? The Warriors' 106-99 win over the Clippers didn't lack for theatrics, as Stephen Curry helped erase a seven-point fourth-quarter deficit with four 3-pointers in the final frame. Curry finished with 28 points and six assists, while connecting on six of eight 3-point attempts - the 11th time in his career with six or more three's and the sixth time this year. He is now seven 3-pointers away from becoming the fifth player in franchise history with 500 career threes. Jarrett Jack - 18 points, 10 assists - logged his third-straight double-double, the first time he's achieved that feat in his career, and David Lee logged his 25th double-double of the season with 12 points and 11 rebounds. The Warriors backcourt of Curry (28) and Klay Thompson (18) outscored the Clippers' Chris Paul (4) and Willie Green (5) by a count of 46-9. Both teams shot better than 50 percent from the field for the majority of the game, resulting in 15 lead changes and 11 ties. The Warriors finished the game shooting 52% from the field, 54.5% from three-point land, and 88.9% from the charity stripe. With the win, the Warriors take the season series from the division-leading Clippers 3-1. After taking down one of the top teams in the West, the Warriors look to defeat another conference-foe when they host the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday.
Mark Jackson
On Stephen Curry:
"He's an All-Star - we have two of them. That being said, he realized the game got tight and that's what leaders do. Instead of holding your head down you look to regroup and make a play. He certainly did that. Give credit to our big guys, and our guys in general, they set screens and got him open. I thought it was an outstanding effort and I'm extremely proud of my guys. I thought our bench was huge once again. With all due respect, I hear about J.R. Smith and Jamal Crawford, at some point people are going to realize what Jarrett Jack is doing for this team off the bench. It's incredible."
On trying to get Stephen Curry the ball:
"The luxury of having (Jarrett) Jack in the game at the same time is when Klay (Thompson) and Stephen (Curry) are coming off those screens - its pick your poison. Those guys make plays and make plays off of it. It's a simple offense, but it is very, very effective. Definitely when he gets it going like that you want to put the ball in his hands and trust that he will make the right plays."
On Klay Thompson defending Chris Paul:
"He was the primary defender initially, which was the game plan. We did the same thing with Tony Parker and it worked and it was effective. I think his size, his length and his ability to contest and be physical - Steph (Curry) is going to be on him anyway, but I thought this gave him a breather and made them cross-match on the way back on the other end. Now you have to find Stephen Curry as opposed to knowing where he is at all times. Klay (Thompson) did a very good job. That's back-to-back games where he defended two big time point guards."
On if the team is regaining momentum:
"We didn't felt like we lost momentum. We lost to some good teams. I never promised that we were going to go undefeated. We lost to some good teams that are ahead of us or right around where we are. We lost to some in our building, we lost some in their building - those aren't bad losses. The Clippers shouldn't think the momentum has left their team; they lost to a good team in our building. You don't want to overreact to losses."
Klay Thompson
On recently guarding Tony Parker and Chris Paul:
"I just try using my length as much as I can. Those guys are great at getting in the paint and making plays. Two of the quickest guards in the league right there. I just tried to use my length and quickness as much as I can and that was the best I could do."
On taking three of four versus the Clippers:
"This is a testament onto how much we have grown as a team because they're one of the better teams in the NBA, their record proves it. Them, the Lakers and Kings are our California rivals, so we love winning against them. We're a good matchup for them. We have a big game Wednesday so we'll enjoy it tonight with a quick turnaround."
Jarrett Jack
On Stephen Curry:
"When you start talking about elite point guards in this league I think that's one thing that really separates him from a lot of guys. You have guys like Chris Paul who's unbelievable in the pick and roll, [Rajon] Rando who's tremendous at administrating the show and as far as shooting the long ball Steph [Curry] is by far the best at his position. Playing with him on a regular basis I've had a better appreciation for him as a player. Me and my brother were just talking last night, man I didn't know how talented this kid was. It's really a joy to watch him mature and grow into the player he has become today."
Stephen Curry
On how he and Jarrett Jack found success tonight:
"Just staying aggressive. We have a lot of chemistry and Jarrett has been playing great all year. We work well together when he has the ball and I'm coming off screens, and vice-versa, so it's a lot of fun playing with a cagey veteran like him."
On Jack running the point in the fourth quarter:
"It takes the pressure off me and puts the pressure on him. I have a lot of freedom to run off screens and just keep defenses honest. We have a lot of shooters so we want to make sure that they have to guard that, and we're playing great for each other. It's a good lineup, we're going to continue to get better at it. I can play point so we have that in our back pocket, too."
On what Mark Jackson said to the team during the third quarter intermission:
"Actually he said all he had to say when we were playing Miami. We had our heads down, everyone was quiet and we had a big deficit. Everyone on the bench had their heads down, so we remembered that lesson from that game. Teams are going to go on a run. This is the NBA, where everyone is talented, so we had 12 minutes to get it done, we came out and got it done. We kept that belief: no matter what, we're still in."
On winning the season series against the Clippers:
"It means a lot. They're a playoff team, they're where we're trying to get to, and obviously they had the streak this year winning 17 games in a row. They came in with four in a row tonight, so to play well like we have and only drop one in L.A., we're happy about our team's success."
Monday’s contest will be the Warriors fourth and final game against the Clippers this season. The Warriors currently lead the season series 2-1, although the Clippers won the most recent meeting 115-89 on January 5. Tickets are still available for Monday’s matinee, which could be a potential playoff matchup of division rivals.
The Warriors ended their three-game losing streak Saturday night and eclipsed last season’s win total in the process, defeating the Hornets 116-112. On a night they were without David Lee, Klay Thompson led the Warriors in scoring with 29 points including five three-pointers. Point guards Stephen Curry (20/7) and Jarrett Jack (25/12) combined for 45 points and 19 assists, while Carl Landry notched a double-double with 11 points and 11 rebounds in his first start with the Warriors. Festus Ezeli set a new career-high with 13 points, and Richard Jefferson chipped in 11 points off the bench. The Warriors will look to make it two wins in a row when they host the Clippers on Monday.
Although the Warriors most marked areas of improvement this season have come in the form of defense and rebounding, there is no telling where the team would be without the performances produced by the point guards. Stephen Curry has been putting up All-Star worthy numbers all season, but it doesn’t stop there. Jarrett Jack could be the steal of the offseason, as his play coming off the bench has diversified the Warriors lineup and given them another dependable ball-handler and distributor to facilitate the offense. Not only did he score 25 points in Saturday’s win, but his 12 assists were the most by a Warrior off the bench since Tim Hardaway in 1995. The point guard matchup will be a key against the Clippers, who possess arguably the best point guard in the league in All-Star Chris Paul.
You can do your best to guess, but you never know where the production is going to come from on any given night. In Saturday’s win over the Hornets, the Warriors were a perfect example of that. Playing shorthanded without David Lee, the Warriors received some great performances from some unexpected places. Festus Ezeli notched a new career-high with 13 points, while Richard Jefferson came off the bench to add 11 points of his own. For a team that lacks a single superstar such as the Warriors, getting contributions across the board is essential to their success.
The Clippers have solidified themselves as one of the premier teams in the entire NBA. At 32-9, they’re a half-game behind the Thunder for the best record in the league, and the secret to their success isn’t exactly a secret. Chris Paul recently returned to the lineup after missing three games with a bruised knee where he is joined by fellow high-flying All-Star Blake Griffin. While those two are the biggest names that drive the train, the Clippers deep bench might be what sets them apart. With players like Caron Butler, Matt Barnes and Lamar Odom to take the focus off of Paul and Griffin, the Clippers become awfully difficult to shut down offensively. The Warriors bench led by Jarrett Jack and Carl Landry is no slouch either, and that matchup could ultimately determine which team is victorious in Monday’s game.
