DeMarcus Cousins holds the key to one more Warriors playoff run

Mar 13 2019 Houston TX USA Houston Rockets guard James Harden attempts to steal the ball from Golden State Warriors center DeMarcu

"It was a good game for us, we didn't come out with the win but [it's a] learning experience".

There is, however, a 6-foot-11, 270-pound wild card in the equation that wasn't around for the West finals past year.

But it was the team performance that particularly pleased Curry, given that Golden State was without Durant's scoring.

Thompson added a basket for the Warriors before the Rockets used a 6-0 spurt to cut the lead to 104-100 with 47.7 seconds left. In a two-point win over their rival Houston Rockets and without Durant, Boogie poured in a season-high 27 points to go along with eight boards, seven dimes and a pair of steals.

"It's OK", added James Harden, who led the Rockets with 29 points. Klay Thompson led the way with 30 points after going 5-10 from three-point range. "And we just gotta figure some things out and do a better job". However, since 2016, Golden State has lost just once in the last four matchups in OKC.

Tributes as Love Island's Mike Thalassitis dies aged 26
And the tributes didn't end there, ad Kady McDermott also chimed in to say: "In absolute shock". I send my love and condolences to all of his friends and family at this very bad time.


But the Rockets have scrapped much of their switching due to different personnel.

In last year's playoffs and in wins earlier this season, the Rockets' switch-heavy defense gave the Warriors fits.

"But it makes it hard no matter who we're playing, if you don't give a team second-chance opportunities". "So [he] did a good job and I'm not anxious about that". D'Antoni also mentioned that physical Rockets reserve center Nene would hopefully be able to help make it tougher for Cousins to dominate down low, which made the decision to rest Nene on Wednesday a bit curious. If you want to put it in those terms then, yeah, I'm sure it is.

Kevin Durant sat out tonight with a right ankle contusion. For Cousins, that's kind of the beauty of blending in with a team that has arguably as much offensive firepower as any in National Basketball Association history.

They found out that answer on Wednesday night.

New Zealand Picks Up the Pieces After Christchurch Massacre
Ms Ardern, who arrived in Christchurch Saturday, said the shooter was not on any watchlist and did not have a criminal record. Facebook said it had deleted the gunman's accounts "shortly after the livestream commenced" after being alerted by police.


"When Kevin is out, we don't have the luxury of throwing to him and getting 30 points", Thompson said after the Warriors snapped the Rockets' nine-game winning streak. "I guard bigger guards well too". I got to learn how to use him better. "I mean, listen, it's [just] one loss", said Harden.

DeMarcus Cousins also served as a facilitator before thriving as a battering ram, posting season-highs in points (27) and assists (seven) to help the Warriors bounce back from Sunday's loss to the Phoenix Suns. However, the Warriors ended up winning by two, 106-104.

After being blamed by both fans and media for the Warriors' recent woes, Cousins - who declined to speak to reporters over the past few days - brushed off the criticism postgame, acknowledging that he appreciated his teammates publicly defending him.

After trailing by 14 in the fourth quarter, a three-point play by Chris Paul got Houston within one with 10.8 seconds left.
