James Harden shrugs off end to Rockets' win streak: 'It's one loss'

Boogie Cousins Warriors

Green's public support appeared to help lift Cousins in Golden State's 106-104 win over the Houston Rockets on Wednesday, as the latter big man scored a season-high 27 points to go with eight rebounds and seven assists.

Despite the surge, James Harden & Co. still trail first-place Golden State, which has lost six of 10 capped by a loss to the lowly Suns, by 3 1/2 games in the Western Conference standings. On Sunday night the Suns went into Oracle Arena and defeated Golden State for the first time since a 107-95 victory on November 9, 2014. George has averaged 28.2 points, 8.1 rebounds and 4.2 assists in 65 games this season. Good thing about it is we play again on Friday. "It was my fault in the first half", Westbrook said. They knocked down just 11 of 41 3-point attempts, with Harden, Paul and PJ Tucker combining to go just 5-for-25. The won nine games in a row and looked unstoppable.

But the version of Cousins that showed up to the Toyota Center on Wednesday is capable of altering the dynamic of a playoff series, particularly against the undersized Rockets.

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. We wanted to score, it should have been that way the entire game.

Washington (29-39) has won five of eight games and is now three-and-a-half games out of the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. But big or small, Cousins didn't care who's was on him.

"But you got to do it by committee so myself, Klay and DeMarcus were being aggressive when we had the ball in our hands". His three-point shooting is down from 33.2 percent in his career to only 24.2 percent this season. It marks his first 30-point outing since November 24, 2015.

While Miles is known as a sharpshooter and had a little bit of a resurgence over the last six games, he has not been consistent enough to be on any fantasy roster other than in deep leagues.

There is, however, a 6-foot-11, 270-pound wild card in the equation that wasn't around for the West finals a year ago. Miles may be worth a punt play in DFS if he comtinues to see a decent amount of usage.

Playing to DeMarcus Cousins' strength the rest of the season will be key for the Warriors' success, and it perfectly exemplified the type of play they want to continue. He struggled to hit his shots throughout the night making just 10-23 and only two of 12 from behind the arc.
