How about the Golden State Warriors who just received DeMarcus Cousins back from injury?
On Friday night, the long-awaited debut of the star big game has arrived. Back from an achilles injury that kept him out for nearly an entire year, it seemed like Cousins hasn’t skipped a bit en route to leading the defending NBA champions to a 112-94 victory. Albeit iffy with his conditioning as made very evident by his six fouls in just 15 minutes of game time, Cousins put up 14 points, which included three three-pointers, and grabbed down six boards.
“Felt like a kid on Christmas,” Cousins said. “It’s been a long journey. This is probably one of the best days of my life.”
Cousins was a plus-21 when on the court and finished the night shooting 5-of-11 from the field in a debut that sent shockwaves around the NBA. The Warriors roster now features a starting line-up of five All-Star and a second unit led by the likes of Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston. With a simple dunk, Cousins has made one thing very clear – he is back and the Warriors are without a doubt the team that no one can touch.
“I’m just glad to know that I can still dunk,” Cousins said. “It felt good. I never in a million years thought that would be my first basket playing ball again.”
Who can stop this Warriors team?
