The San Antonio Spurs (8-7) snapped their three game losing streak defeating the Golden State Warriors (12-6), 104-92.

Rudy Gay (19), LaMarcus Aldridge (24 and 18 rebounds), and DeMar DeRozan (20) led the Spurs in scoring, but everyone played a part in the win on the defensive end.

Here is a small sampling of what the teams had to say following the game:


Gregg Popovich:

"You have to go play. I thought we competed really well. We’re making mistakes that hopefully in a while we won’t make as we get used to each other."

Rudy Gay:

"We needed that one. It was a hard fought win for us. You know, that’s a team that really needed this one too, so it was really a good battle for us and a good test for us.”

Bryn Forbes:

"I think it was the energy more than anything that really changed things for us."


Steve Kerr:

"We haven’t been in the real NBA in the last few years. We’ve been in this dream and now we’re faced with real adversity and we’ve got to get out of it ourselves.”

Kevin Durant:

"We’ve got to get the ball rolling as quickly as possible just to find a good shot at each possession – sometimes it may take less than five passes.”

Klay Thompson:

"It was a terrible road trip as far as wins and losses, but we’re obviously shorthanded. Besides the Houston [Rockets] game, I feel like either game (Dallas or San Antonio) could have gone either way."

The Spurs are back in action today to face off against the New Orleans Pelicans.
