Warriors Come Back To Beat The Heat In Overtime Another raucous crowd at Oracle Arena witnessed a comeback for the ages, as the Warriors took down the visiting Heat 111-106 in overtime on Tuesday. Nate Robinson helped Golden State erase a 17-point second-half deficit with 17 of his team-high 24 points in the fourth quarter and overtime and Dorell Wright nailed six 3-pointers in what is so far the Warriors signature victory of the season. Monta Ellis had 22 points and David Lee came through with 20 points and 14 rebounds for the Warriors, who host Dwight Howard's Orlando Magic on Thursday.

Mark Jackson On Tonight's Game:
Well, we fought. I talked about it all season long; we are a team that is not going to quit. When it got tough tonight I thought there was a point, just like in life, where you can fold the tent or you can begin to believe and fight back and we did that. Once we began to do that, good things happened. Great for my guys because the bottom line is you need results, you need results in order to trust a system. They have bought in from day one and it was great to see Nate Robinson who people have questioned, doubted, I thought he was I didnt know what he was when he was on the other teams. But I know hes a fighter, I know hes a competitor and no pun intended I know hes a warrior. The guy left it on the floor, thank God for second chances. Heres a guy, just like everybody else in my locker-room, whatever folks say about him I havent seen it. Hes been great in the locker-room, great on the plane, great on the bus, and spectacular on the court. And Dorell Wright was great. Was great to see him aggressive, taking his shots and defending LeBron James. Im just extremely proud of my entire group.
On Dorell Wright:
He was aggressive. I thought in the past he would pump fake his way out of an open shot. Hes a shooter, shooters shoot. I think tonight he let his hair down and took open shots. Thats the guy I expected to see from day one and Im so glad that hes back and I expect him to build on that.
David Lee On Tonight's Game:
It was a great night for us. You know the next part of it is, we have another game on Thursday. We have a road trip with winnable games, so we have to keep it up. This game was similar to Chicago and New York games, where it all came together defensively in the second half were we were able to get the win.
Nate Robinson On The 4th Quarter:
Coach just tested us. He asked us who wanted it more, us or them. It was us. We just kept staying together throughout the whole game and it showed.
Monta Ellis On Not Giving Up:
Were not the same Warriors. We just kept chipping at it and we believed. We came out with the win.
On Other Teammates Stepping Up:
I didnt have it tonight, my teammates did. I didnt need the ball in my hands.
On Dorell Wright's Night:
I knew today was going to be the day, not because it was Miami I knew his body was going to be better. We have a secret weapon. Like I have been telling him all season to just stick with it and he did.
