Cousins was scary good tonight.
[–]Warriors CtG526 45 points 3 hours ago
He FEASTED tonight!
[–]Warriors Otherwise_Window 14 points 3 hours ago
Cousins is gonna get fat though if he keeps eating Capela's lunch like that
[–][GSW] DeMarcus Cousins vote_boogie 123 points 3 hours ago
Eat shit boogie haters. Dude just dropped 27/8/7 on the guy y’all said would run over him
[–][MIA] Eddie Jones usgojoox 269 points 3 hours ago
This was the Cousins that was promised
[–]photowanderer 55 points 2 hours ago
i was only able to catch the 2nd half, but wow, he was so much better than previous games. His foot work was great, he didnt have that usual offensive fouls where he just clumsily bulldoze the defender.
[–]Warriors maethlin 30 points 2 hours ago*
I'll be the first to admit I underestimated him. Straight up son'ed Capella out there.
[–][SAC] Justin Jackson Ps3FifaCfc95 1036 points 3 hours ago
I was told Boogie wouldn't be able to see the floor against the Rockets
[–]Warriors mehblah666 141 points 3 hours ago
Capela was demolishing us last year and it was totally unexpected to see us deliberately attacking capela to consistently get good looks offensively over and over.
[–][HOU] Chris Paul BreakingbAdamm 75 points 3 hours ago
you guys did a great job on capela, most teams do not.
[–]Rockets chugz 86 points 2 hours ago
He got bodied out there. Boogie was ballin. Made clint look like a little boy.
[–]uberdosage 47 points 2 hours ago
You know cousins is big. Then you watch him post up and man handle other centers that you thought were pretty big. The dude is scary strong. Reminds me of KAT trying to push against him in the post.
[–]Warriors mehblah666 17 points 3 hours ago
I give most of that credit to Cousins for sure. In previous meetings over this season and last season Capela would score well yes, but his real impact was in dominating the boards (he had a 20/20 game in the WCF right?) having a guy as strong as Boogie really helped neutralize Capela’s rebounding skill. He just wasn’t comfortable all game.
[–]xLazyBoy 74 points 3 hours ago
Boogie destroyed Capela holy shit.
Surprised the game was so close after Houston being down by 14 so late in the game.
Harden should have kept driving instead shooting 3s. Him and Gordon were hitting every layup or at least getting fouled.
[–]Warriors maethlin 24 points 2 hours ago
Looney out there battling like a mother fucker tonight too
[–]Warriors manisier 17 points 2 hours ago
Looney lowkey wants to destroy the Rockets. He was picked on every possession last season, gotta imagine he wants to show how much he's grown
[–]bndgdrs_lmao 14 points 3 hours ago
Warriors outrebounded a team that had Capela by 15 rebounds, lol. Guess it helps to have Kevon Fucking Looney, haha. Seriously, he was crushing them alive on those closing possessions of the 3rd quarter.

Thank you Warriors!

We got you fam!

NOBODY BEATS THE WARRIORS 4 TIMES IN A SEASON
[–]Raptors b0redn0rd 277 points 3 hours ago
When the Rockets lose in the playoffs, we can say they blew a 3-1 lead.
[–]Rockets koshyguy 42 points 3 hours ago
We lost but I honestly love these match ups. Super exciting regardless of result.
[–][HOU] Gary Clark JimHarden 74 points 3 hours ago
entertaining game, looking forward to the a playoff rematch
[–][HOU] Patrick Beverley The_Purple_Pixel 208 points 3 hours ago*
cant believe we lost to a team that lost to the suns
[–]Warriors CtG526 12 points 3 hours ago
Your next game is vs the Suns.
[–][GSW] Klay Thompson ltbr55 415 points 3 hours ago
Beat the Rockets and Nuggets. Lose to the suns. Go figure
[–]YSBAMF 21 points 2 hours ago
Gotta plan your losses strategically
[–]Celtics falsenaga1 32 points 3 hours ago
So we still gonna act like the Warriors can't just sleepwalk through the regular season and turn it on whenever they want to?
[–]DANK_BLUMPKIN 167 points 3 hours ago
When they phone it in they can lose to anybody. Every team wants more than anything to get a W on the dubs. If the dubs relax then they get caught off guard
[–]Timberwolves ygduf 26 points 2 hours ago
It's almost like they can play well against teams they care to compete against...
[–]Warriors Otherwise_Window 90 points 2 hours ago
This, really. Every single game is "playoff intensity" and that's just not sustainable to match for the entire season.
[–]Lakers Jayveesac[S] 366 points 3 hours ago
No season series sweep tonight
[–]Warriors AngrilyUnderstand 289 points 3 hours ago
The Rockets shot 27% from deep!
[–]technically correct2 60 points 3 hours ago
That number looks familiar
[–][GSW] Kevin Durant tropheez 273 points 3 hours ago
[–]Warriors MarkNarwahlberg 38 points 3 hours ago
Their favorite number!
[–]Rockets DoctorZzzzz 98 points 3 hours ago
[–][GSW] Stephen Curry Royale__With__Cheese 14 points 3 hours ago
Guess the playoffs are getting close...
[–]Lakers loljonesgoat 21 points 3 hours ago
i can see it now: are the warriors better without KD??

Keys to winning the series between these teams: Don't bring one of your stars
[–]Warriors BandwagonQaanol 319 points 3 hours ago
Negative Harden vs Negative Durant, which is better?
[–]Raptors MasterOfSwag9000 207 points 2 hours ago
Imagine if they were on the same team!
[–]Warriors raikou1988 130 points 2 hours ago
And had someone capable of lets say avaraging a triple double in a season not once , not twice but 3 years in a row.. ahh that couldnt possibly ever had happened
[–][GSW] Jordan Bell mathmage 82 points 2 hours ago
Imagine how good OKC would have been in the Finals if they had ruled out Westbrook, Durant and Harden from the same game
[–]Warriors manisier 41 points 2 hours ago
Kendrick Perkins goes for 50 a game
[–]76ers Zaxii 814 points 3 hours ago
I know everyone hates the warriors, but seeing CP3 dirty ass and Harden flopping ass lose is a just a beautiful feeling. ANYWAYS EVERYBODY GET IN HERE LMFAOOOOOO
[–]Thunder lacrorear 149 points 3 hours ago
I hate the Rockets more then the Warriors at this point
[–]TheTacoBellDiet 109 points 3 hours ago
Chris Paul and Gordon complained about literally every single call. It was unbearable.
[–]76ers Amenz 200 points 3 hours ago
Just watch the way Cp3 went after the ref on the igoudala hunt down of the rebound at the end. People complain about Draymond bitching to the refs but forget that Cp3 is the OG of that shit
[–]packers SB54champs 291 points 4 hours ago*
The FT disparity was terrible
[–][GSW] Andre Iguodala Elementary_drWattson 27 points 4 hours ago
When I saw the stat I didn’t believe it.
[–]Celtics Brad-Stevens 137 points 3 hours ago
The Steph/Klay/Dray Warriors are so much fun
[–][GSW] Stephen Curry mcpartlycloudy 23 points 3 hours ago
The Warriors finally showed up on defense today, that and boogie's improvement were the two biggest difference makers tonight. See y'all in May
[–]Warriors toothbud 23 points 3 hours ago
KD should come off the bench and we start McKinnie
[–][GSW] Kevon Looney LoneAmbition 9 points 3 hours ago
Bring back Bogut as the starting center and DeMarcus is the stretch 4. Let KD do whatever he wants on offense in the second unit let's go
[–]Warriors non13 261 points 3 hours ago
If Cousins plays likes this (or even 75% of this) against Houston in the playoffs I'm not worried at all. Great playmaking, shooting under control, held his own on the guards and most importantly to me, making Capela and PJ Tucker actually work in the post. I love Looney but he can't effectively defend Capela and is easily neutralized by a PJ Tucker in the post.
The defense was okay but Houston was definitely very cold from 3 tonight.
By god, the Warriors fucking destroyed them on the glass. Looney, Cousins, McKinnie and Steph were working on the offensive rebounds tonight.
Another amazing game from Klay. Steph started out amazing but cooled off dramatically but hey, he helped get that early lead in the first place.
Draymond's offense is starting to worry me.I couldn't give two shits about three point shooting (though obviously if he got that back that'd be nice), but missing easy layups is extraordinarily bad.
[–]Pistons rando1817 139 points 3 hours ago
If cousins plays like this no one has a shot against the warriors
[–][GSW] Stephen Curry athleticsfan06 14 points 3 hours ago
Not the mention they have Bogut coming back. We will finally have post defense in the first AND second unit!
[–]West Gundam336B 78 points 3 hours ago
KLAY THOMPSON IS A MF MONSTER
[–]intdeep 21 points 3 hours ago
Curry was playing the defence like it was game 7 of finals. Fucking love it
[–]Kings AdorableCentipede 13 points 2 hours ago
He played way better defense in WCF than KD, it's just no one talks about it.
[–][LAL] Kareem Abdul-Jabbar NotYourAverageWaffle 163 points 3 hours ago
Good guy Steph Curry tossed the final shot to the rafters instead of putting the nail in the coffin.
[–]Lakers misterborden 49 points 3 hours ago
One of the classiest guys in the league
[–]Mavericks severus_snapshot 7 points 3 hours ago
Steph legit looked happier winning this game than Game 4 of the Finals last year.
