What the Warriors had to say about 97-87 win over the Pelicans (1/18/14)

Warriors Coach Mark Jackson
On the win
“It was a big bounce back win for us. I thought the first half we were not as sharp, but the second half we regrouped, we battled defensively, and we took care of the basketball. It was just a quality win for us.”

On defense in the second half
“We made the most out of our effort plays. We rebounded the basketball. We took guys out of their confidence zone and I thought that was a big difference with our defense in the second half.”

Warriors forward Draymond Green
On how Golden State’s defense compares to the Pelicans’ defense
“I don’t think we have to test out our defense against anyone. We know what we’re capable of. It’s just important that we stick to our principles and do what needs to be done.”

Warriors center Andrew Bogut
On the upcoming home games
“We just need to keep building. Our game on Monday will be a true test to our abilities. You can’t afford to get too comfortable.”

Warriors forward David Lee
On winning tonight’s game
“Everyone contributed tonight, especially in the second quarter. We really gained some momentum by winning tonight.”
