BBNBA: Boogie Shows Out in Best Game as A Warrior

Good afternoon, folks. DeMarcus Cousins played the like the DeMarcus Cousins we saw dominating fools in New Orleans. Let’s talk NBA.

RECAP

  • The Golden State Warriors had lost its previous three matchups this season against the Houston Rockets. Without Kevin Durant in the lineup, DeMarcus Cousins stepped up and led the Warriors to a close victory, 106-104. Cousins played his best game since returning from his Achilles injury, posting 27 points on 11-16 shooting to go along with eight rebounds, seven assists, two steals, and four turnovers. 27 points is a season-high for Boogie and the 31 minutes he clocked were the second most he’s played all season. He finally looked comfortable within the offense (reminder: no Kevin Durant in this game); scoring in the post on Clint Capela, hitting cutters with perfectly placed passes, running in transition, and not fouling for no reason. He was the Boogie of old and it couldn’t have come at the perfect time.

  • Now let’s keep it up, Boog.
  • In Phoenix, Devin Booker also dropped 27 points but his Suns squad was outplayed by the Utah Jazz, 114-97. Booker shot 9-20 from the field (2-4 from three) to go along with four rebounds, six assists, and four turnovers.

  • Bam Adebayo added 10 points and five rebounds for the Miami Heat, making all three of his field goal attempts. The Heat obliterated the Detroit Pistons by a score of 108-74, who have now scored in the mid-70s during its last two games. Adebayo played only 16 minutes but was a plus-22 in the box score.
  • And finally, in Oklahoma City, Nerlens Noel registered six points, five rebounds, and one block in 17 minutes for the Thunder.

      Yes, he even shot the ball too. Funny stuff.

    I thought that may have been one of Boogies best games EVER. He played under control, hustled, shared the ball, hit shots, rebounded, set picks, and just played an overall great game.
