OAKLAND -- With so many players to praise after the Warriors' Game 4 playoff victory over Denver on Sunday night, coach Mark Jackson neglected to critique the performance of his wife, Desiree Coleman Jackson, who sang the national anthem at Oracle Arena.

He was asked about her performance Monday, however.

"It was great, I thought the crowd was incredible and I think the cat is out of the bag that I'm the second-most talented person in my family," Jackson said.

Jackson said he paid a little more attention to this anthem performance than he normally does.

"As a player and a coach, when the anthem is being played or sung, I go into prayer -- even last night," the coach said. "I'm listening, but I'm going into prayer. Somebody asked me if I was nervous. No, no, that's hilarious."
