Stephen Curry hails Warriors' teamwork without Kevin Durant against Rockets

Stephen Curry hails Warriors' teamwork without Kevin Durant against Rockets

It was a close battle the whole game between the Golden State Warriors and the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night.

Thompson entered Wednesday's game averaging 22.4 points per game on the season, the highest rate of his career. I think we let their guys get too many shots off.

"Again, make or miss, we just tried to put pressure on them. I guard bigger guards well too". "I've got to learn how to use him better". "Tonight, we lose by two, just because they were a little better in the details".

The win was the Warriors first victory over the Rockets this season in four games. "We've got 15 games left for us to figure out the combinations". The combinations and all of that stuff. So it's good to have multiple guys that can step up every night.

Some time thereafter, Warriors owner Joe Lacob treated the franchise's most golden player, Stephen Curry, to a round of golf, according to The Athletic's Marcus Thompson.

"I'm quick", Rivers said with a wry smile. "But we've all been in this business long enough to know how it goes". "I knew I needed to pick it up in the second". I know. y'all gotta do your job, and I gotta do mine. Nor was DeMarcus Cousins available for the Warriors' first two meetings against the Rockets this season, while he was still recovering from the torn Achilles tendon that made it possible for Golden State to add an All-Star big man for the taxpayer's exception.

"Oh, it's something every day", Cousins said.

"I'm sure y'all have heard of it - "As the World Turns". "That's what this has turned into - "As the World Turns".

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. "It's probably the best soap opera in the world".

After trailing by 14 in the fourth quarter, a three-point play by Chris Paul got Houston within one with 10.8 seconds left.

Last night, the Warriors were victorious in their matchup against the Rockets without Kevin Durant. Greek Freak and the Bucks are the only 50-win team in the National Basketball Association. Durant proudly waited in the tunnel to greet his teammates and give them a hug on the way back to the locker room. "I think that's what will be good for us in the playoffs". "It's more about the team than it is about any one individual". Just choose your NBA, NHL or PGA game, and make your picks! We haven't had this kind of an option before. A good thing about it is we play a game on Friday. "We're still learning. This was a really good effort and a good example of how it should look". Heading into the game, they were on their worst 10-game stretch of the season with a 4-6 clip. "He's DeMarcus Cousins", Curry said. Why wouldn't they? I'd be surprised if they didn't feel that way.
