I told the guys, this is mathematically not over.
It was a huge game, and we played with a playoff mindset.
This is a tough blow.

Warriors 107-106 Suns

It was probably good for us to feel that situation, and have to deal with the pressure.
Coach Kerr kind of looked at me after I made the shot like, ‘You messed up on those two defensive possessions, but it’s OK’.
It was a tough one to swallow. We’re not quitting. We’re hanging on by a small, small thread.
