'That's 3-1': Houston Remains Confident Following Loss to Warriors

DeMarcus Cousins Stephen Curry Kevon Looney Warriors

So nobody wanted to jump to any grand conclusions after the Golden State Warriors held on for a 106-104 win Wednesday over the Houston Rockets, a team that has established itself over the past two seasons as the two-time defending champions' primary challengers. I'm sure y'all heard of it - 'As the World Turns.' She called it her story: 'I gotta watch my story.' I used to watch it with her; and every episode, it was something. "It's like my grandmother - when I was younger, she had this show she used to watch. That's what this has turned into - 'As the World Turns'". Houston carries a nine-game winning streak into this matchup with Golden State and has won all three of its meetings against the reigning champs.

"No I don't", he said. "I mean, I was getting wide-open looks from his passing ability". "He'll miss [Wednesday]. Just day-to-day, but he's not ready to play tomorrow".

Some have wondered if Cousins is a good fit with this fast-paced team and there have been some growing pains as he's been worked into the team after missing the first 47 games this season recovering from an Achilles' tendon injury.

Kevin Durant sat out tonight with a right ankle contusion. 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.

There is, however, a 6-foot-11, 270-pound wild card in the equation that wasn't around for the West finals previous year. But big or small, Cousins didn't care who's was on him. "You can put whoever you want on me, honestly".

The Warriors and the Rockets have been headed in different directions over the past 10 games. The Rockets are tied with Oklahoma City for third place behind Denver. Chris Paul was the Rockets' second-leading scorer with 24 points on 7-for-12 shooting. Good thing about it is we play again on Friday. "We done played them enough times where they know us, and we know them". He finished with 3 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists.

Houston coach Mike D'Antoni indeed bemoaned that his team made too many mistakes and said this should be something that will help the Rockets more than just by watching film.

The press team in the president's office did not immediately respond to requests for comment on details about that relationship. Franco and Gomes were returning from a meeting Franco had attended on empowering black women when their auto was attacked.

Curry added 24 points for Golden State.

Durant initially injured the ankle in Sunday night's loss to the Phoenix Suns.

"It's OK", Harden said when answering a question that started with how the Rockets were on a roll.

But the Warriors scored the last four points of the period to extend the lead to 85-78 entering the fourth.

"But that's OK. That's 3-1 [in the regular-season series]". I think it was maybe a reminder that when we play against them, obviously, that's the goal.

"They're still the team to beat", Rivers said.
