DeMarcus Cousins had 1
The warrior center returned to court for the first time since it sounded a blown Achilles on January 26, 2018 as a member of the New Orleans Pelicans.
After melting, cousins left ovation from his teammates and some Warriors fans:
Tobias Harris scored 28 points for 24-21 Clips who lost five straight. Stephen Curry led the 32-14 Warriors by 28.
DeMarcus cousins Rusty, but warriors will soon be invincible
Before the game, Mark Medina of ] Mercury News tweeted the craziest basketball clip any Non-Warriors fans have seen this year.
Cousins hit four or six three pointers during this pregame shootaround. Granted 28-year-old executed feat without resistance, but the cousins' ability to knock down three is the biggest reason why the warriors will soon be invincible.
Boogie is primarily known to be a force down low as he bullies his way to dunks and rebounds, but he added the three-point shot to his repertoire in 2015. For the next three years, cousins made 35.2 percent of his attempts on the road to an average of 26.5 points per game.
It's not as if cousins hardly shot three or two. The ex-Kentucky star tried 4.7 shots from the center per. Game.
Cousins picked up where he left Friday when he drilled a three-pointers from the elbow at the beginning of the second quarter.
Honestly, it is unfair that the warriors now have a player who can do it and announce his return to the league with an NBA Jam-level power slam for his first bouquet in the Bay Area Threads.
The great man also showed his skillful skills, which will help him fit right in.
Cousins obviously looked a little rusty after a calendar year away from the game. He had three mistakes in the first eight minutes and so a little tired as one might expect.
Cousins outside shooting, painting dominance and transient are reasons enough to be afraid of the warriors, but he also crashed the glass admirably in view of the severity of his Achilles tendon and showed how valuable he would be when it comes to about generating extra possessions that can lead to even more spot-up moves for the Splash Brothers.
Despite missing Stephen Curry for 11 games, Draymond Green for 14, cohorts for the whole year and Klay Thompson's shooting game, Warriors came first on Friday in the Western Conference with a 31-14 record.
With Curry, Green and the cousins back and Thompson looking almost as hot as in January, the fear of all non-warriors can soon be realized: Only a team of All Stars could shut down the Golden State in a seven-game series .
That may have been the case even without cousins on the roster, but even if he never comes back to his old form, the teams will be hard pressed to take a game from the Golden State in the playoffs.
