Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry led the Warriors to a huge 108-78 win over the Houston Rockets on Sunday night. The #SplashBrothers combined for 55 points on 11-of-20 shooting from deep, while Curry added 11 assists, five rebounds, and two steals. Andrew Bogut finished with his first double-double as a Warrior (12 points, 12 rebounds) in addition to three blocks. David Lee’s 10 points, 10 rebounds earned him his 44th double-double (1st in the league). The Warriors held the Rockets to 32.6% shooting from the field in their first win against Houston this season. Next up on the Warriors road trip is a visit to New Orleans to battle the Hornets on Monday night.
Mark Jackson
On the win:
"It was a great win for us, bouncing back from a disappointing loss the other night. I'm just proud of my guys, extremely proud of my guys."
On the game:
"I thought we were great, obviously you can play the same defense and they can make shots, but at the end of the day we were alert, aware, paid attention to details, we contested shots, we got back to the paint, we rebounded. It was just a thing of beauty. We took care of the basketball. They hurt you often when you turn it over and getting it going in transition, but I'm extremely proud of my guys. Houston spreads the floor, knocked down the long ball, and then it opens up the floor. They went small, the same way they did the last time we played them and they hurt us. Tonight we made the adjustments, we had the same line up and I thought Carl (Landry) gave us very good minutes. I thought our bigs were exceptional and we did a great job on multiple effort plays. Staying at home with the shooters, Klay Thompson was absolutely outstanding, not just offensively but more importantly defensively. He defended one of the best in the business (Harden) and made him work for everything."
On his teams' play:
"I believe in my guys and I know this team is not going to panic. We are going to stay true to who we are. For example, people say why a day off yesterday? You don't start doing things you haven't been doing. That panic. And a day off the day before we came here, everybody was out on the floor, in there working. You just don't see that in all my years of playing, broadcasting, and coaching. This is a special group. I'm honored to coach these guys."
Klay Thompson
On the Warriors back court:
"It was just one of those nights where we had great looks. I think we have one of the best shooting back courts in the league, its easy playing off Steph (Curry) because he spaces the floor so much and he is a great playmaker as well. Everybody on the floor shares the ball so well and when we are unselfish like that it's a thing of beauty. "
On the win:
"It was huge. If we don't take care of business tomorrow in New Orleans this means nothing. We have to get some separation and the Rockets are right on our heels. Every win from here on out is a big, big game and you have to take wins where you get them and it's not easy. We were 0-3 against them and we really needed this one."
David Lee
On the game:
"It was a huge win, coming in here on the road these are the games that count most. Not only because we've lost three times to these guys also coming off a bad loss and also because of the standings where both teams are right now. We got off to a good start and had a very balanced first half and in the second half they made their run and our guys responded well and grinded it out at the end. Houston came out hitting shots (in the third quarter), Jeremy (Lin) hit four consecutive jumpers, as did (James) Harden and they made their run, but we kept playing the same way that got us the lead. We tried to be aggressive and Steph (Curry) and Klay (Thompson) hit some big shots."
Stephen Curry
On the key to the game:
"We were on a mission to just play better defense and do it for 48 minutes. Each time we played them, we got better, but we couldn't put a full game together and we knew coming out in the third quarter that Houston was going to make a run. You have to withstand it the best you can and have good possession on the offensive end and that what we were able to do."
On the win:
"This was a big game for us to start off the road trip with and it's a good feeling and now we have to follow it up tomorrow and not let this win be for nothing. We knew Houston was a high scoring team and they are capable of putting up big number and if we don't stick to the game plan and have multiple efforts. That was a mission for us to come out and we were able to force them to miss some contested jump shots."
ON THE ROAD AGAIN
After closing out a season-long seven-game homestand, the Warriors are back on the road for a three-game trip that begins Sunday in Houston where they’ll face off against the Rockets for the fourth time this season. Houston has dominated the matchup this season, winning all three games including two on the Warriors’ home court. The two teams figure to be battling it out for playoff position, or perhaps even a playoff berth, down the back stretch of the season, so this particular encounter has even greater meaning. In a rivalry that has been building up all season, the Warriors would certainly like to come away with a victory.
LAST TIME OUT
The longest homestand of the season ended on a sour note, as the Warriors fell to the Bulls 113-95 Friday night at Oracle Arena. The game was tight for most of the first half but a 25-4 Chicago run bridging the second and third quarters put the game out of reach.
LIVING AND DYING BY THE THREE
In Friday’s blowout loss to Chicago, the Warriors once again displayed a common trend for the season: when the three-ball isn’t falling, the Warriors have a tough time winning. Golden State shot an uncharacteristic 3-of-14 from behind the arc, and hadn’t made a single trey until halfway through the fourth quarter. That’s especially surprising for a Warriors squad that boasts both Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, who rank first and third, respectively, in the league in made three-pointers. However, while it may look ugly when the shots aren’t falling, the Warriors’ propensity from long distance has been the recipe of their offensive success all season long, and will continue to play a huge role as opposing defenses buckle down in the lead-up to the playoffs.
JACK IS BACK
For awhile there, it was looking like Jarrett Jack had lost the touch that had made him such a huge force off the bench for the first three-quarters of the season. However, after scoring a paltry four points on 2-of-7 shooting in the Warriors’ blowout win over the Knicks last Monday, Jack took the court following the game to work on his shot with Assistant Coach Mike Malone. Well, apparently it worked. In the two games since that postgame session, Jack has gotten back on track and averaged 19.5 points on 54 percent shooting. For a Warriors team that frequently goes small in the fourth quarter of close games, it is essential that Jack continues to be productive and occasionally jumpstart the offense when necessary.
HOUSTON SCOUTING REPORT
When Houston acquired James Harden in the offseason, this was exactly the type of impact General Manager Daryl Morey and the rest of the Rockets’ brass was hoping he'd have. Harden has been the catalyst for a Rockets team that, like the Warriors, is trying to get over the playoff hump for the first time in several years. Aided by Harden’s 26.4 points per game and a talented supporting cast that includes the likes of Chandler Parsons, Jeremy Lin and Omer Asik, the Rockets have proven themselves a formidable opponent to almost any team they encounter. As indicated by their shooting displays in all three previous matchups with the Warriors this season, it's clear that they will take advantage of any open looks they receive. Limiting those looks and contesting every shot will be a huge key for the Warriors if they hope to come away with a crucial road win.
