Billy Donovan, unprompted: "The difference in the game was the fact that they went to the free throw line 34 times. To me, that was something that was very, very difficult to overcome." The Warriors had a 34-24 advantage in free throws during their Game 5 win. Eight of Golden State's free throws came while they protected a multi-possession lead in the final minute.

Nadal on whether he'll be ready for Wimbledon: "We're gonna work hard to be ready for Wimbledon. For the moment I need a couple of weeks with that, you know, with the immobilization. Then we're gonna do the treatment, and we hope the treatment works well. We expect to recover quick, to be ready for Wimbledon, no? But at this moment, you know, it's not a moment to talk about that. "It's just a moment to go day by day, to work hard. I hope to have a fast recovery."


Matt Wilansky Tennis editor 

A few notable quotes from Nadal's presser: "Every day [the pain in my wrist] is stronger, and I arrived here with a little bit of pain but something that I think I was able to manage. "Every day was a little bit worse. We tried to do all the treatments possible. Every single day we spent a lot of hours here working so hard to try to play. Yesterday I played with an injection on the wrist with anesthetic, just to sleep my wrist, to play."
