Keith Smart
On the defensive plan in the second half:
Our guys went to a double team of Blake (Griffin). They were real aggressive, got into him and didnt reach for the ball. Our weak side finally, after harping on it all game long, to get to the inside of the rim to be there for any long passes. We were trying to keep the ball on one side of the floor and I think we got a chance to do that. And then we would scramble and we gave that second and third effort that was necessary to win.

On going with a big lineup in the fourth quarter:
We had a matchupnot just with him (Stephen Curry) but because we had two games in a row where the situation is that they have two big guards that were going to pound the ball inside one way or another. I thought Dorell (Wright) being in there gave us another rebounder when we didnt have the bigger guy out there. So it was not just defensively, but also for rebounding.

On Reggie Williams and Vladimir Radmanovic:
He (Reggie Williams) and Vladimir Radmanovic played great. To come off the bench and make shotswe neededits no secret Ive been trying to get this man (Williams) to play that way all year long. And he finally played. I tried to get him to be the ball handler, and use Monta (Ellis) as a decoy, and I wanted him to be the playmaker and he did make some plays. Its no secret Im trying to get him to be that aggressive when he comes in a game because he can makes plays and he can make shots.

Monta Ellis
On tonight's game:
It was a great win for us. We played great last game and tonight they played an excellent game. We didnt expect them to play the way they did the whole game but we found a way to get the win. We stayed together and we kept our composure.

On the upcoming stretch of games:
The next week and a half is really going to tell our season. Being in the West, you cant fall back two games because its like four or five in the West. We just have to continue to play hard and bring it every night. The fans are going to give us the support all night and we just have to have fun and win.

On the bench's play:
We definitely have trust in those guys because we know theyre going to come in and give us big minutes and give us time to get a little rest. Its good, Im enjoying it. Im happy to see them playing well right now.
