On the fourth quarter:
"They made plays, they made shots and they got to the foul line. They have a couple of guys over there that have had a lot success and they understand that the game is not over. We will get better at it. At the end of the day we made the right plays, enough plays to get out of here with a victory. Proud of my guys."
On the Warriors' level of aggression tonight:
"It’s a message that was sent. I wanted my guys to understand that we are the better basketball team. We’ve played 72 games and the survey says that we are the better basketball team. That can’t be debated – through 72 games. We were not going to come into this game on our heels. We respect them and they have guys that will be in the Hall of Fame – I believe they have four of them. That being said, this is a different day and it’s a different basketball team. I thought it was important to be aggressive and let the chips fall where they may."
On if he has to remind his team to be aggressive:
"I have a young basketball team. I was just reading where David (Lee) and Steph (Stephen Curry) said that it was their first time they have won 40 games. You can’t force the process. You have to be patient with them. I’m extremely proud of these guys and now this is the first time they have won 41. It’s something to celebrate. When we look at the other teams we are playing; they have experienced success, they know success and they recognize success. It’s something that is new to them and they truly deserve it. It’s all about them and they deserve it."
On if there are injury concerns regarding Stephen Curry:
"He’s proven. It’s not a concern to me and it’s not a concern to this franchise. Obviously, they stepped up and signed him long term. It’s not a concern for Steph (Stephen Curry). We know just how special a player and person that he is and we are fortunate to have him. People have freak injuries. Everything that has happened, even like the last time, he sprained his ankle and bruised his hip – that happens to the best of them."
On if had to be convinced to let Stephen Curry play:
"Watching him earlier today, watching him earlier this evening and then just spending time with him pregame – I’m not going to compromise him, this basketball team and more importantly I’m not going to compromise his future. When he told me he felt fine, I believed him. Bob (Myers) and I were in there together and the decision was to let him go, but I was going to keep my eye on him."
