The center scored 30 points during the victory, which was their third in a four-game spell away from home.
The 29-year-old told reporters: "We believed before we left Charlotte that this West Coast trip would either break us or help us. We felt like this could've been the turning point of our season, and I felt like guys came focussed.
"We played well on the pick-and-roll, because those guys' three-point shots are like layups. You had to make sure they saw a body on the pick-and-roll."
Jefferson has averaged 19.9 points per game this season.
