On the game's similarities to Game 1 in terms of fouling and if that suits the Warriors:
"Well, that's who we are, and we've proven that when we play our brand of basketball. We're awfully tough to beat. When we don't, then it makes it interesting. But I know there are people that want to speed up the process. This is who we are. Part of the process is going through things, learning how to be consistent. I'm proud of my guys. It's been an incredible, incredible ride. Now against a three‑seed with two of the top 10 players in the world and a future Hall of Fame coach, we are going to Game 7 in spite of all the sideline music, and I like my chances because I've got a group of guys that want to do whatever it takes to win. You look at Jermaine go down. Mo Speights' ready. Hilton Armstrong, ready. Jordan Crawford, ready. Draymond Green, a gamer. I thought David responded. I'm proud of these guys. It wasn't our best night. We missed 14 free throws. We shoot 38% from the field. Klay gets 9 points, and we win a ballgame. I look forward to Game 7."
On if the fatigue level towards the end of the game:
"Yes, and they made shots. They made tough shots and you're thinking oh, my goodness, you know. Can we get out of here and make sure there is a Game 7? But that is the way we want to leave ballgames where we're on fumes. It's a shame that we leave ballgames with something left in the tank. And I thought tonight everybody that stepped on the floor was engaged. They were involved. We made mistakes, but they battled. They battled."
On his young team's growth since last year:
"I can think of folks saying why are we playing small? Why is Draymond Green in the game? It's because of moments like this. We didn't play for last year or the year before. We played for the future, and he's ready because of those moments. Those guys just competed. I'm excited to see this young basketball team experience a Game 7 on the road. They haven't experienced it as players. It's new to Klay Thompson. It's new to Stephen Curry. It's new to Draymond Green. It's new to all my guys, other than the veterans that have been around and been on other teams. It's new to me. It's going to be a lot of fun because a lot of folks didn't think we'd be here."
On updates on Jermaine O'Neal:
"Sprained right knee. We'll see how he feels moving forward. As far as the play, I didn't get another look at it, so I'm not sure. I'm sure the league, which does an outstanding job of monitoring plays like that, will take a look at it and make decisions."
On the competitiveness between the two teams:
"We're getting after it, both teams. I think ‑‑ I'm not sure that both teams love each other, but I'm pretty positive that both teams have tremendous respect for each other. I can only speak for my team, and I know how Doc feels about me. And he knows how I feel about him. But I think we've got great respect for them, and that's a team that's going to have to be dealt with, not just now, but for a long time to come. We'd like to think the same way about ourselves. But I think it's important to realize that people have been begging to call this a rivalry. It's series like this, moments like this, games like this that put you in position to really call it that way. It's been a great series."
On how he decided to keep David Lee in when both he and Draymond Green got their fifth fouls:
"Well, I'm fighting for my life. My guys are fighting for their basketball lives this year. One thing I told the guys this morning, this group will never be together again, our group. So we've got to do whatever it takes to find a way to prolong this thing, to find a way to advance. Don't rob ourselves. With the foul trouble, I rolled the dice. I looked at it like I had options. Those guys gave me what they had, and then it was time for ‑‑ I thought Harrison gave us great minutes battling bigger guys and being on the boards and made some shots. I can't say enough how proud I am of these guys."
On why he thinks this group will never be together again:
"It's a fact. This team won't be the same team next year. Meaning there will be a draft choice. There will be a guy that signs somewhere else. We'll add coaches. Something is going to take place where this group will not be together. Said the same thing last year and it's clear. It's not guessing anybody's next location. It's just a fact of the league. What I want to do is maximize this group's potential and all that we've put into the tank."
On preparing for Game 7:
"We're going against two of the top 10 players in the world. I'm going against a future Hall of Fame coach. They are the No. 3 seed against a We Are One crowded house. We are an excellent road team. We're excited. We earned this platform. We're going to embrace it, and we're looking forward to it. There is no time ‑‑ one thing I realize, I once played for an incredible coach, I'm not going to say his name, gave the most incredible pre‑game speeches. We had a Game 7 once on the road, and he gave one. My only thought during that time was as a player, we didn't need it that day. I don't have to tell my guys anything in Game 7. They knew exactly what we've got to do."
