Warriors Fall In Road Trip Opener
The Warriors opened their four-game road trip with a 108-97 loss to the Phoenix Suns. After a sloppy first half that saw the Warriors issue 15 turnovers, Dorell Wright caught fire and brought the team back into the game from a 20-point deficit. Wright, who was held scoreless until the third quarter, finished with a game-high 30 points and in the process matched a Warriors season-high for points in a second half. David Lee had 16 points and 10 rebounds and Stephen Curry came through with 15 points and five assists for the Warriors, who will play the first of three-straight games in Texas on Sunday against the Dallas Mavericks.

Tim Roye's Game Recap




Keith Smart
On the teams perseverance:
I give my team credit because that is the one thing we have shown pretty much all year; that we will compete all the way through. We may not come up with the rebound that we may need or possession; or a guy hits a big shot with one second on the clock or may get a foul. But they have shown that they will compete no matter what. Weve had several games where weve been down by 20 or more points and have always competitively got ourselves back in the game, so Im proud of them.


Stephen Curry
On the second half:
We never quit. I think the bench came in and gave us some great minutes, got some defensive stops, got the ball moving in our direction a little faster and Dorell (Wright) and Al Thornton came in and got some good offensive possessions for us. Defensively, we were a little better; we just didnt have enough to get over the top.


Dorell Wright
On his play in the second half:
They were just putting pressure on guys, getting into the paint and guys were just finding me. It was nothing really to it. Same thing Ive been doing all year. I just caught a little fire. Ive been a little aggressive going to the basket, getting to the free throw line. I was a little frustrated in the first half, especially coming back out on the court and seeing that put-back at the end of the first half didnt count, so I was as little upset about that. So I just wanted to go out there, play hard, bring our team back; I was out there with the second unit, we were getting stops and flying.
