James Harden: Rockets star makes ‘aggressive’ Steph Curry claim after Warriors loss

But it was the team performance that particularly pleased Curry, given that Golden State was without Durant's scoring. And he was a liability in the Warriors' Feb. 23 loss to the Rockets, a nonfactor offensively and picked on defensively. This was by far the best "Boogie" has been for the Warriors, setting season highs with 27 points and seven assists, repeatedly bullying the Rockets on the block. It seems point guard Chris Paul has an idea of what the Rockets need to do next time to overcome the Warriors. Houston has won all three games in the regular-season series, and eked out two victories by a combined total of seven points at Oracle Arena. "They're not tripping. I mean, they're probably not". He adds a whole new dimension to our team. "But having said that, with all the stuff we've gone through and all the ups and downs, and starting from 11-14 to whatever we are after that, we're in a good spot and we still have a chance to legitimately make a run for the first spot". The idea of a possible end to their reign of terror has resurfaced, but it was the team's most recent victory over the Houston Rockets that helped reaffirm their all-time greatness in the face of adversity once again.

But the Rockets have scrapped much of their switching due to different personnel.

Cousins came to the Warriors via the Pelicans. "So [he] did a good job and I'm not anxious about that".

Mike D'Antoni's got jokes. Inside out, upside down, whichever way you want to slice it.

Durant, who injured his ankle Sunday, went through a full practice Friday in Houston. Greek Freak and the Bucks are the only 50-win team in the National Basketball Association. It seems like they still have the ability to get to that level based on Wednesday night's win.

"We locked in and we got stops and we knew who we were guarding", he said. I expect our crowd to be little more into it, too.

When he rolls to the basket his defenders has to move with him and weak side defenders have to keep at eye on him if he gets a switch.

Regardless of all the chatter surrounding the rivalry between the Warriors and the Rockets, Green said "I'm not sure stupidity juices anyone".

Warriors: Visit Oklahoma City on Saturday night as they continue a four-game road trip. He's also knocking down 3.1 3-pointers per game this season, the third-highest mark of his career.

The Warriors' offense hummed using Cousins as a hub with an offensive rating of 118.3 in his 32 minutes. Multiple losses in a short period of time spark a debate as to whether or not the Dubs still have what it takes to overcome both the physical and mental hurdles accumulated over the years, but for the past two seasons, none of those supposed controversies has come to matter in the end.

DeMarcus Cousins had his best night as a Warrior. "You've got to play smart".
