Harden shrugs off loss; D'Antoni warns of trouble

NBA Golden State Warriors at Houston Rockets

For the better part of the last month, the Warriors have tried to stay above water. Houston has performed like an elite team after a slow start, going 33-12-a 60-win-pace-in their last 45 games. "He's DeMarcus Cousins", Curry said. The Warriors have one of the best moving offenses, especially when they play without one of their superstars.

"That's the goal", coach Steve Kerr said following Friday's practice at the University of Houston.

"When Kevin is out, we don't have the luxury of throwing to him and getting 30 points", Thompson said after the Warriors snapped the Rockets' nine-game winning streak. It seems like they still have the ability to get to that level based on Wednesday night's win.

Cousins compared the season with his new team to being in the middle of a soap opera.

Only the Milwaukee Bucks (51) and the Toronto Raptors (48) have more wins than the Warriors. The Dubs (46-21) are now one-and-a-half games clear of the Nuggets for the best record in the Western Conference.

Meanwhile, the Warriors have won in Philadelphia, Boston, Milwaukee, Portland and Indiana.

The Warriors survived Chris Paul and the Rockets' late outburst for a 106-104 escape on the road in the National Basketball Association on Wednesday, March 13 (Thursday, March 14, Manila time).

Last night, he presented the US President, Donald Trump, with the traditional bowl of shamrock in a ceremony at the White House. Today the Taoiseach will leave Washington and travel to Chicago to meet emigrant support groups.

To put the Rockets' season in perspective consider that they were 11-14 at their lowest point this season just before Harden's 30-point scoring streak began. "We know what it takes to win on the road. He propelled us to a victory tonight". But a 16-4 run by the Rockets in the final minutes got them within one, 104-103, with 10.8 seconds to play. The Rockets are tied with Oklahoma City for third place behind Denver.

He has, however, looked more like his old self since the All-Star break, registering 18.1 points and 9.1 rebounds per contest in nine appearances. He was the only Golden State starter to end the game with a positive plus/minus rating.

The big center scored 27 points, grabbed 8 rebounds and dished out 7 assists in a performance he said was the most in rhythm he has felt all season.

Regardless of all the chatter surrounding the rivalry between the Warriors and the Rockets, Green said "I'm not sure stupidity juices anyone". "I think that's what will be good for us in the playoffs". As usual, Houston leads the league in 3-pointers made per game, but they just couldn't find the range against the Warriors. Add in a solid frontcourt of Steven Adams and Jerami Grant, and the Thunder has the looks of a formidable opponent for the Warriors in the postseason.

"Yeah, well, they should have probably said it before the game", D'Antoni told the national media laughing. "It's a tough place to play and a hell of a team".

The Warriors did all of this without Durant, who remained sidelined with a right ankle contusion. Without Durant, the Warriors needed another prominent half-court facilitator, and Cousins fit the bill to a tee. He finished the night with 27 points, eight rebounds and seven assists. "I really do believe there's no other team but us that can really have a chance against them".
