Post-match quotes:

Stephen Curry (Golden State Warriors guard):

"We played a great game tonight. We were able to get off to a hot start, and we were able to maintain our lead throughout the game. Our defense was also key to our victory. We were able to hold the Rockets to a low shooting percentage."

Jabari Smith Jr. (Houston Rockets forward):

"We played a good game tonight, but we made too many mistakes. We gave up too many easy baskets, and we struggled to get stops on defense. We need to learn from our mistakes and move on."
