Klay Thompson scores 30 as Warriors get by Rockets

Steph Curry Klay Thompson are the only two players in NBA history to do this

It was Cousins' fifth 20-point game of the season and his 10th consecutive double-figure scoring effort.

What's deeply important about that performance is Kerr made some adjustments to the Warriors' style to fit what Cousins can do. She called it her stories. "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'".

The Houston Rockets are finally healthy and have won a season-high nine straight heading into their final regular-season meeting against the Golden State Warriors.

"I'm quick", Rivers said with a wry smile.

"It was a good matchup out there for him", Thompson said of Cousins after the game. The Warriors were also without Kevin Durant, forcing the team to toss the ball in the post to DeMarcus Cousins more often. He also added three rebounds in a season-best 33 minutes of action.

"He just played probably the most complete game since he's been here", said the shooting guard. But big or small, Cousins didn't care who's was on him. I think it was maybe a reminder that when we play against them, obviously, that's the goal.

Klay Thompson (30 points) and Stephen Curry (24 points) handled things seamlessly in the backcourt with a combined 8-of-19 mark from three-point range. Golden State shot 49.4 per cent from the floor (compared to Houston's 47.4 per cent) and finished 10-for-10 from the free-throw line.

For most teams, Oklahoma City's Chesapeake Energy Arena has been a house of horrors. "You've got to play smart".

When Cousins settled for a one-year deal with Golden State, a lot of folks figured he could be a solution to the Rockets' switch-intensive defensive scheme that often baited the Warriors into relying on isolation instead of their typically lovely ball movement.

"It's all right, we lost, we know we did". At the age of 29, he now ranks 18th all-time in 3-pointers made and 14th all-time in 3-point percentage.

"Well, it better be", D'Antoni said of experiencing the Warriors live as opposed to trying to learn from film.

Curry added 24 points for Golden State. On Sunday, Durant went down with a sprained ankle.

Eric Gordon was asked if he believes the Warriors see the Rockets as their foremost challenger. Cousins put up a team-high seven assists.

Like every squad, the Warriors have gone through their fair share of ups and downs this season with internal controversies and a number of injuries.

Golden State led by double digits for most of the fourth and had a 13-point advantage with about five and a half minutes to go.

Warriors: Curry needs six points to become the fifth player in franchise history to reach 16,000 points.

"Understanding you are missing 28 points is tough", he said. Houston converted the two-way contract of Danuel House into a standard National Basketball Association contract. Clint Capela chipped in a double-double with 13 points and 13 rebounds.

"We just didn't play smart, simple as that. You can't really have letdowns with this team because they'll make you pay, and that's what happened". They were going to come out, they were going to play.
