Stephen Curry quotes
All but three of them were almost wide open.
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.
I felt confident, every shot I took felt like it was going in. Just got served a humble slice of cupcake.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
It was weird. We struggled early, but we left our mark in the third quarter. That's when we were at our best.
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.
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.
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.
This was a special night.
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.
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.
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.
The greatest shooter to play the game.
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.
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.
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.
