Stephen Curry quotes

It's obviously great, any time you can hear his voice, see his face. He's obviously been doing his homework in between, his downtime to help us get prepared for the series. You know he misses being around the day-to-day routine and the atmosphere of practice and locker rooms and games and all that. So for him to even just have the energy and ability to be here means a lot. Hopefully he's feeling better.feedback

It was just nice to hear his voice really. That's what you were used to and when you don't have it for a while, you kind of miss it.feedback

We have a lot of talent. We never know who is going to have a hot night. We try to move the ball, use each other to create open shots and when we do that, the ball is hopping and a lot of good things happen.feedback

Myself and the other 19,000 people in the arena and everybody watching on TV saw the same thing I saw. It's an easy decision to at that moment (to defer to Durant late). Try to set a screen for him and get him to the right spot and, obviously, he does the rest. We're smart enough basketball players to know what's going on at that moment and try to make the right decision and let a talented scorer like he is ... let him do what he does.feedback

We love that shot. It gives us a huge lift. Hopefully that jumper travels when we go to Utah because those shots will be open.feedback

We picked up right where we left off. We weren't clicking making shots early on but our defense really gave us an opportunity to find that flow, and that's what you need in the playoffs.feedback

It kind of means a little bit more to me because I was the only one to wear that same uniform, the old-school colors, the old-school logos. When I first got here that's what everybody talked about, Can you all do what the We Believe team did?feedback

It's weird when you don't have your head coach. There's no sugar-coating that. But we have to do what we need to do in his absence.feedback

We're very confident about who we are and how were going to be successful.feedback

Our coach is going through a lot right now physically. He told us this morning this is a situation where we need to rally and go out and win a game for him, but we felt that the way the game had gone, we had to fight and do it for him ... and the way that he said it was that we had to win one for the Gipper. So shout out to Coach Kerr.feedback

We kind of get caught up in looking for him, sometimes too much when he's not open. We feel like he can do something spectacular above the rim.feedback

When you're really trying to zone in and keep your focus, you don't want to have any unnecessary distractions during this point of the season. We have goals to accomplish, and you want to make sure you're giving your all. I didn't do it because he did it. I'm not reinventing the wheel. It's just a way to help me keep my focus on what's important. I have a way of sending out messages without getting into my accounts. That way, I'm not seeing or reading something I'm trying to avoid.feedback

It's worked for me so far. I'm going to stay with it.feedback

When they got it going, they're hitting tough shots in the first half, some you've just got to live with, we played great defense. They were just able to finish, but over the course of 48 you just try to wear them down.feedback

We're chasing something, we're not protecting anything this year. ... In theory, we're not the hunted. Obviously, we have the best record but we're not defending a championship. There's really no pressure. Two years ago we were trying to climb the ladder again and now we're in that kind of same mentality. It's good for us to go just go in with all the confidence in the world that we've built up this regular season and understand that every round's going to be different, every round's going to be just a dogfight. We understand how important every single game is on that journey.feedback

He's been plugged in, understanding from game to game things we've been talking about, so mentally we're all on the same page. I wouldn't call it having to hit reset. KD's such a smart player understanding his skill level and his talent that the things we've been doing well he will take us to another level, hopefully. It shouldn't be much of a transition back.feedback

Last year, things kind of got pushed under the rug and painted over a little bit because we were winning games. It wasn't really a great way to go into the playoffs. It was obviously a good emotion, but we had some habits that needed to be fixed. I think now we understand how important our defense is for us winning, especially in the playoffs.feedback

You don't let go of the rope. Whether it ends up in a win or a loss, you can't ever feel like you're out of it. Understanding based on the experiences we've had the last three years, we have what it takes to win all sorts of way.feedback

This is an important time of the year, especially with our schedule and teams we have to go up against ... all playoff teams and all atmospheres that, whether it's home or road, that we need to win in.feedback

Every person should parent their kid as they feel they should.feedback

I have visited China every year since 2013, and the fans there are incredibly supportive of me, the Warriors and the NBA. I'm excited about the opportunity to return to China, enjoy the country's culture, and bring the excitement of live NBA games directly to Chinese fans.feedback

I actually look forward to waking up and seeing what ridiculousness is posted.feedback

It's frustrating only because in the moment everything feels good. You just want to make shots. As a competitor and a gamer, that's what you expect to happen. It doesn't affect the next shot. It's just one of those things you just kind of have to pull yourself through. The next opportunity, step up like you've made 10 in a row and see what happens.feedback

We knew we'd be fine, getting back to who we are.feedback

Nah, [a 10-point, half-court shot] would make it worse. Four-point shot maybe, but that's still kind of enticing people to just test stuff out. Nah, a 10-point shot definitely wouldn't work, but maybe a 4-point shot.feedback

It has to be some other perk that I can't really think of right now that would entice people, I guess, just to play a little bit more defense. That's really it. The intensity is there. You can't just walk out there and do a windmill. People are actually playing hard to a certain extent, but we're not trying to injure anybody. That's the main goal.feedback

We've had plenty of openings and creating decent shots, just haven't gone in in the last three games. But that happens as you go through a long season, you just have to fight through it and not let it affect how you play. Obviously if we make a couple more shots in Chicago the game's a little different. Philly it was a struggle but we found a way to win, so just got to stay on the mission of letting the offense create good things for us and still have confidence to knock down shots.feedback

It was a great run. For us to play that many games and not get in a situation like we're in tonight, it's pretty impressive. It's remarkable. We'll just have to try to start a new streak.feedback

There was definitely a sense of relief that he'll be able to come back at some point down the stretch of the season. Our job now is to (continue) being us, continue to get wins, continue to play well, continue to build toward the playoffs and then when he's able to rejoin us, hopefully, we hit our stride and be ready to try to win another championship.feedback

A shot I normally make, so I was confident. You live for those moments. You live with the result.feedback

I forgot to adjust to the thickness of the air. It happens, but you have to find other ways to impact the game. I don't ever get down on myself. I still have confidence the next one is going in.feedback

All but three of them were almost wide open.feedback

He's doing amazing things. I don't think that confidence (was any) different now than when he was a rookie or whatever. You go through each year, gain experience, get the right guys around you, good things happen. He's having an amazing year. It's been fun to watch.feedback

I felt confident, every shot I took felt like it was going in. Just got served a humble slice of cupcake.feedback

We had a really good mentality coming in but kind of laid an egg. Our young guys did a great job of providing some life and entertainment.feedback

He grew up there, pretty much, into a man. That's hard to turn off. It meant a lot. I had some great times there, man, never going to forget them.feedback

We came out with intent, got two quick steals, pushed the transition, and set the tone that we were going to be physical on the defensive end.feedback

It's always cool to see my dad on the sidelines commentating the game on their end. You get a little juice from that, too. ... I don't take those opportunities for granted because this an unbelievable opportunity to play the game that he played for 16 years in the NBA and carry on that name in the league.feedback

I have to be aggressive. That's the thing about us. We do have a lot of talent. There's a balancing act with it.feedback

Coming out, I made my first shot in the third quarter and that just continued the trend. Big mo going into the half and we were able to keep that energy as a group and have an amazing third quarter.feedback

It's big because you never want to get that negative energy in your locker room if you can avoid it. Every game is big, but there is just another level of intensity that you need to avoid a losing streak. Both schools that I played for and the Warriors got a win, so that's a solid trip.feedback

It was an early start, and a challenge mentally, but it shouldn't matter what time of day it is. We want to win whenever we play. We showed how much winning means to this team.feedback

It was weird. We struggled early, but we left our mark in the third quarter. That's when we were at our best.feedback

This is high-quality basketball, at its highest level. These are the kinds of atmospheres that you live for. Whether you win or lose, regular season, playoffs, whatever, that you can play in that kind of environment that's always fun.feedback

There's no panic at all. You go through these hiccups, these road bumps and it pokes air out of the balloon a little bit, but that's what the regular season's for. Last year, I don't think we had many opportunities to kind of self-assess and look ourselves in the mirror and see where we were at, just riding that wave.feedback

I was hard on myself in practice the last two days. I had pretty good shooting sessions. I don't overreact to games like that whether I go 0 for 10 or 2 for 12 or whatever it is. My process is the same, but I had another level of focus the last two days trying to get my rhythm back and see the ball go in.feedback

Would have loved to finish my career making one every game, but hey, start a new one. What was it, like two years? Kind of weird not to make one, but I will keep shooting.feedback

But you've got to wrap your head around where you are in the season, and the good we've shown early in the year, but also focus on the things we need to work on. Regardless of a game like last night or tonight, we still have some things we need to work on.feedback

It was definitely fun. We knew how much it meant for him to just get out there and play with all the noise around the game.feedback

It's a nice little slap in the face. First game you want to come out and protect your home court and have the energy of the home opener live throughout the game. We didn't do anything to let that happen.feedback

We take pride in not having lost two in a row. It hurt to lose last game and see that streak end, so we wanted to come back and take advantage of the opportunity we had tonight.feedback

This hasn't sunk in at all. I'm on cloud nine for sure. Obviously we're in the middle of a playoff run and that's the most important thing but today is a celebration for sure. Thank you dad, you are the example of what a true professional is on and off the court. I remember a lot of your career and to be able to follow in your footsteps…it means a lot to me.feedback
