So nobody wanted to jump to any grand conclusions after the Golden State Warriors held on for a 106-104 win Wednesday over the Houston Rockets, a team that has established itself over the past two seasons as the two-time defending champions' primary challengers. Despite Durant's absence, the Rockets couldn't contain Stephen Curry (24 points), Klay Thompson (30 points) or DeMarcus Cousins, who had perhaps his best game as a Warrior with 27 points, eight rebounds and seven assists. This was his first outing with more than 5 boards since February 8.

"It's OK", added James Harden, who led the Rockets with 29 points. But, during one play of last night's contest, DeMarcus "Boogie" Cousins flopped. "When it comes to smaller guards, I think I can guard them better than anyone in the league".
"They're still the team to beat", Rivers said.

Regardless of all the chatter surrounding the rivalry between the Warriors and the Rockets, Green said "I'm not sure stupidity juices anyone". Unfortunately, Houston made some costly mistakes down the stretch on defense and it ultimately cost them the game. Despite that they managed to claw their way back into the game at the end, but it was too little, too late.
The Warriors were up by 13 after a reverse layup by Cousins with about 5 1/2 minutes left before Houston used a 7-2 run, with a 3-pointer from Eric Gordon, to get to 102-94.
"When Kevin is out, we don't have the luxury of throwing to him and getting 30 points", Thompson said after the Warriors snapped the Rockets' nine-game winning streak. "On the road, you know what it takes to win and we've been able to play with the type of intensity". "Tonight was definitely a good learning lesson for us, and we will definitely learn from it". So it's good to have multiple guys that can step up every night.
Golden State had a seven-point lead to start the fourth and scored the first seven points of the period, highlighted by a 3 from Thompson, to push the lead to 92-78.
The Rockets were outrebounded by Golden State 44-31. "It's just building that consistency, and he's done an fantastic job of that, and it's only gonna get better for us".
