    Don’t want to be a downer, but his moving screen could have ended the series..

      That is a debbie downer comment. You could make the same comment on dozens of other plays. Turnovers, poor defense, missed shots, etc. … if GS had lost it would not have been because of this one play.

      Agree that this one bone-headed play could easily have ended Golden State’s season…

    I thought it was sad where ESPN tried to make Cousins the villain for the goaltend and the moving screen. The screen was dumb, but the goaltend, that shot was going in regardless. Greenie tried to make it seem Cousins was trying to sabotage his team.

      ESPN loves to jab anything that involves UK.

    This team lives and dies by Cousins it seems like. The 2 games he played well they won, the 3 he struggled they lost.

      Eh it also just so happened those two games the raptors couldn’t make a shot. Whenever the raptors shoot average they’ve won easily.

    Cousins had an offensive goaltending, defensive goaltending, & illegal screen all during the last few minutes in crunch time.. He played well overall, but those were all crucial mistakes in huge moments. Regardless, I don’t think the Warriors can win 2 more games without KD.

    “Unfortunately, Cousins isn’t in terrific game shape and appears to gas himself out quickly.”

    Wow. You think think sitting out for all that time had something to do with it? Or how about coming back and being thrown in the middle of a game with the worlds best athletes.”

    “Which then translates to the defensive end, leading to poor rotations and half-efforted attempts to block shots, but Golden State doesn’t win this game without Cousins.”

    Was that supposed to be a compliment, or a positive thing written about Cousins? Why not write the last part without the bashing in the first part? GS played better defense with Cousin in the game …

    Most of what Zack “wrote” (or borrowed, if you will) was acceptable, unfortately he can’t resist taking a jab at a former UK player. In fact, he seems to have taken a jab at a former UK player in EVERY ONE of these “borrowed” blurbs. Whereas a good writer would mention Cousins still playing himself back from injury, Zack doesn’t resort to such logical thoughts and instead is trying to build a reputation as a basher, or a tough writer, I don’t know. It just comes across as petty. But if petty is the best you can do, Zack “wrote” a below average blurb.

      Sounds like you and Zack have a lot in common. You love to bash the writers here and are petty frequently.

      This is just stating facts. It’s no knock on Boogie…
