DeMarcus Cousins played 15 minutes in his first game. He had 14 points, six rebounds, and three assists with one steal and a block. He ended up fouling out on the night, but was still a +21 and shot 5-of-11 from the field.
The Warriors ended up on top by a score of 112-94. Kevin Durant scored 27 on the night, with seven rebounds, five assists, two steals, and two blocks. Stephen Curry had 28 points, five rebounds, and four assists. Draymond Green had seven points, eight rebounds, and nine assists — nearly a triple-double. Even though it was a close game in the first half, the Warriors came out in the third quarter blazing.
For the Clippers, only two players scored in double digits. Tobias Harris led the way with 28 points, nine rebounds, and two assists. He shot 7-of-18 from the field and 11-of-12 from the free-throw line. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander scored 24 points to go along with three rebounds, five assists, and three steals while shooting 7-of-17 from the field and 12-of-12 from the charity stripe. Without Lou Williams, the Clippers weren’t able to create much offense or get anything going.
The Warriors are now 32-14 on the season and sit on top of the NBA’s Western Conference. They will face off next against the Los Angeles Lakers next at the Staples Center this upcoming Sunday.
