Eric Gordon: No Other Team But Rockets Have A Chance Against Warriors

"Tonight was a good step", Warriors star Stephen Curry said, speaking specifically about Cousins.

However, Cousins was able to redeem himself and have a big night, scoring a season-high 27 points, while posting 8 rebounds and 7 assists. She called it her stories.

"I used to watch it with her; and every episode, it was something". "That's what this has turned into - "As the World Turns".

James Harden believes the Rockets' loss Wednesday to the Warriors can help Houston in the long run, despite ending its nine-game winning streak. "I'm anxious about what's in this locker room", he said before walking away. If you want to put it in those terms then, yeah, I'm sure it is.

Some have wondered if Cousins is a good fit with this fast-paced team and there have been some growing pains as he's been worked into the team after missing the first 47 games this season recovering from an Achilles' tendon injury.

"He just played probably the most complete game since he's been here", said the shooting guard. Bryant is also a cheap DFS play who can payoff big.

"We weren't going to out score them, we had to buckle down and get stops and just try and control the tempo of the game as much as we could".

For most teams, Oklahoma City's Chesapeake Energy Arena has been a house of horrors.

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

We'll see if the comments Green made during his postgame media session will spark any animosity from Houston for the next meeting.

When Cousins settled for a one-year deal with Golden State, a lot of folks figured he could be a solution to the Rockets' switch-intensive defensive scheme that often baited the Warriors into relying on isolation instead of their typically handsome ball movement. They know what they'll get out Klay Thompson on a nightly basis. He has averaged 22 points over the last five games and has made five 3-pointers in each of the last three.

"We just had too many mistakes", Houston coach Mike D'Antoni said. On Sunday, Durant went down with a sprained ankle.

The Rockets also have gotten a boost recently from the strong play of Eric Gordon. Ultimately, the dubs stole the road win over the Rockets, 106-104. Cousins recorded six assists in the first half. They knocked down just 11 of 41 3-point attempts, with Harden, Paul and PJ Tucker combining to go just 5-for-25.

Len is playing some of his best basketball of the season. Curry had five points in that stretch.

Harden led the way for the Rockets with 29 points.

Warriors: Curry needs six points to become the fifth player in franchise history to reach 16,000 points.

"But it makes it hard no matter who we're playing, if you don't give a team second-chance opportunities".

The downside to that: Cousins has often been an offensive afterthought in the almost two months he has been playing for the Warriors, as they've struggled to find ways to feature the kind of low-post weapon they've never had.
