DeMarcus Cousins to debut amid Warriors win streak

Ajustar Comentario Impresión

DeMarcus Cousins not only threw down a dunk for his first points as a Warrior, he scored the first points of the game for Golden State.

The Rockets broke their own record for three-point attempts after shooting 61 against New Orleans in December 2016. You have to think that Curry, Durant and Thompson are locks no matter the opponent.

Cousins is expected to make his long-awaited debut on Friday after spending nearly a year on the sideline because of a ruptured left Achilles tendon.

After hitting nine treys on Wednesday night, Curry has 184 in 34 games this season. So the Warriors swooped him up for a modest $5.3 million and it's virtually infallible. They're playing incredible, they're having basically the best version of their season, but we don't need to get carried away, and I think that game against Golden State was the bucket of cold water getting dumped on their head.

Instead of his usual scowl, Cousins left the court after his sixth foul at 8:51 of the fourth smiling and high-fiving his new teammates. "So that's how it's going to be with Cousins".

The two teams combined to make 43 3-pointers, breaking the National Basketball Association record set by the Kings and Warriors.

Tobias Harris scored 28 points and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander added 24 as the Clippers dropped their fifth consecutive game.

Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr Tuesday confirmed that center DeMarcus Cousins is on his track to make season debut over the weekend.

Fast forward a year later, and Cousins gets to share the floor with two of the league's top five players in addition to two more elite talents.

Will the Warriors run a Curry/Cousins pick-and-roll or a super-sized Durant/Cousins pick-and-roll, opening up a number of options for everyone on the floor, or will they opt to play in a five-out set freeing up the paint for penetration, or will they let Boogie do work in the low post?

And from the beginning, the All-Star looked back in his element. Durant got a technical in the third. He now has 28 three-pointers over the past three games.

The Blazers were led by the scoring trio of Damian Lillard (24 points), CJ McCollum (20 points) and Jake Layman (20 points) in the win over New Orleans.

This historic win was special for Stephen Curry who registered eight 3-points in the game.

Blake Griffin collected 32 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists, and Detroit overcame the early departure of Andre Drummond to edge visiting Miami. Al-Farouq Aminu scored 15 points and Maurice Harkless had 12 for Portland. Irving missed the Celtics game on Monday with a sore right quadriceps. Like those versatile scorers, Cousins can hit the three-point shot with touch and consistency.
