NBA 2018-19: 3 Talking points from Houston Rockets vs Golden State Warriors
- The Rockets defeated the Warriors once again, their third win this regular season
#2 DeMarcus Cousins' monster double-double night
Stat line: 13 points, 14 rebounds, 2 assists, 3 steals, and 4 blocks
DeMarcus Cousins continues to dominate the opposition players in the paint as the center exploded and stuffed the stat sheet against the Rockets. He did a great job against the tall Houston defenders and did not allow the Rockets to score easily in the paint.
This is his fourth double-double this season and second straight. In his last game, two nights before, he had 17 points and 10 rebounds in the close win against the Sacramento Kings. The Warriors are still not using him fully considering the fact that he is just returning from a devastating Achilles injury.
Cousins is averaging 13.8 points, 6.8 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game this season in 22.3 minutes of action.
