Video: Warriors’ Quinn Cook sends Austin Rivers flying with sick crossover
Cook got off to a great start early in Game 6 against the Houston Rockets, even providing what could go down as the highlight (or lowlight) of the night with a nasty crossover that send Austin Rivers tumbling to the side of the court.
Remarkably, the incredible play allowed the Dubs to score via a Klay Thompson floater.

Rivers and Rockets fans in attendance at Toyota Center would probably want to forget that embarrassing sequence. Meanwhile, it’s certainly a play to remember for Cook who has only played 19 seconds in the whole series prior to Game 6.
The Warriors are without injured forward Kevin Durant, who suffered a right calf strain in Game 5, so the Dubs need all their players to step up and pick up the slack left by their best offensive player. Fortunately for them, the bench is responding big time in Game 6 and providing hope for the team.
The main issue about the Warriors is their depth, but if Cook and Livingston can keep giving them quality minutes, that problem might just be solved.
