James Harden unconcerned as Rockets' win streak ends

The underdog WArriors square off against the chalk Rockets meet in Houston on Wednesday night

"I mean, it's cool", Cousins said. "You can put whoever you want on me, honestly".

The win was the Warriors first victory over the Rockets this season in four games.

But on Wednesday, with Kevin Durant out with an ankle injury, Cousins shined. He also added three rebounds in a season-best 33 minutes of action. There were times the Rockets switched on defense and left much smaller players attempting to guard the 6-foot-11, 270-pound player. Bryant is also a cheap DFS play who can payoff big.

"I think we all do, but at the end of the day it's a win or it's a loss", he said.

Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson combined for 54 points on 20-of-43 shooting, with Thompson tallying 30 and five 3-pointers.

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

Draymond Green #23 of the Golden State Warriors looks on during the game between the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Golden State Warriors as part of 2017 NBA Global Games China at Universidade Center on October 5, 2017 in Shenzhen, China. Heading into the game, they were on their worst 10-game stretch of the season with a 4-6 clip.

"We've talked about it as a team many times so hopefully, on this trip, we'll get to that point".

"[But] we locked in and we got stops and we knew who they were guarding".

Harden had 29 points and 10 assists for the Rockets, but shot just 2 of 12 on 3-pointers. Steph Curry added 24 points.

"Well, it better be", D'Antoni said of experiencing the Warriors live as opposed to trying to learn from film.

Eric Gordon was asked if he believes the Warriors see the Rockets as their foremost challenger. And he was a liability in the Warriors' Feb. 23 loss to the Rockets, a nonfactor offensively and picked on defensively.

Thompson his five treys in this game to give him 203 on the season. Cousins recorded six assists in the first half.

Boogie Cousins had his best game of the season since joining the Warriors mid-season after rehabbing a blown Achilles.

Warriors: Curry needs six points to become the fifth player in franchise history to reach 16,000 points. Monday with a 118-106 victory over the Charlotte Hornets behind a 28-point night from James Harden. Houston converted the two-way contract of Danuel House into a standard National Basketball Association contract.

Phoenix guard Devin Booker scored 13 straight points during a fourth-quarter run and finished with 37 for the game. "We won nine in a row. you kind of let go of the rope a little bit or we make some mistakes that we've been getting away with maybe against some of the teams we have been playing over the last few weeks".

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.
