There's a difference between trying to hurt someone vs. knocking somebody off their balance ... We're trying to go after [Curry] to make things uncomfortable, but there's certainly not a point of emphasis to try to hurt him. Both teams have a key player out -- their All-Star (David Lee) is out, our leading scorer (Danilo Gallinari) is out -- and I don't think anybody wants to see anybody go out again.
We definitely can win better ... We all think we can do something special this year, so we cannot allow ourselves to have bad stretches in these types of games, especially at home. (Coach George Karl) was pretty mad, he was not happy with us. He was saying we can't allow ourselves to do this, because this is the last stretch before the playoffs. We have to take steps forward, not taking steps back.More quotes »
