Video: Warriors’ Klay Thompson inadvertently bounces ball off DeMarcus Cousins’ head before hitting jumper vs. Heat
The Golden State Warriors are just so good, that sometimes, they can make a broken play into a highlight. Here’s an example. Klay Thompson tried to pass the ball to DeMarcus Cousins after a pick and roll, but this is what happened.

When the ball bounced off Cousins’ head, Thompson kept playing. He went after the ball and made a jumper.
The basketball gods seem to be in favor of Klay in this game. No blocks coming from a ghost tonight.
The Warriors ended up taking a 120-118 win over Miami, with the triumvirate of Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, and Klay Thompson negating the huge night of the Heat’s pair of Jason Richardson and Dion Waiters, who had 37 and 24 points, respectively. Durant led all scorers with 39 points, while Curry and Thompson combined for 54 points. Cousins, meanwhile, only had seven points to go along with three rebounds, an assist, and three blocks in 27 minutes of action.
The Warriors seem to have found a way to shake off their early-season struggles. They have won 15 of their last 16 games and are once again holding the top spot in the Western Conference standings. The Warriors will host the Utah Jazz next this coming Tuesday.
People can stop talking about the Warriors’ looming free agency decisions at the moment and start asking.
Who in the league can dethrone the Dubs?
