DeMarcus Cousins' first Warriors points came on this massive dunk

DeMarcus Cousins' first Warriors points came on this massive dunk

"Kind of nervous about it, actually", Cousins told ESPN's Rachel Nichols.

Even if at first he's struggling to make shots at a high percentage, if his presence draws attention from defenders, someone from the Warriors fleet of shooters will be open.

There are seven games on Friday night's National Basketball Association schedule, but none is bigger than DeMarcus Cousins making his Golden State Warriors debut.

Having won seven of their last eight games, the Warriors have well and truly put their early season bumps behind them.

In anticipation of his long-awaited return, Showtime Sports today shared a clip from "The Resurgence", a video series that documented Boogie's return from season-ending achilles injury, including his decision to sign with "the most hated team in sports".

US Moves in Syria Irk Russia, Turkey
On December 19, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders announced that the U.S. started to pull out its troops from Syria. Mr Trump's comments on Sunday followed further criticism of his abrupt decision to withdraw USA forces from Syria.

After losing the 2016 NBA Finals to the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Warriors signed Kevin Durant as a free agent, barely two months after Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder had pushed the Warriors all the way in the Western Conference Finals. "Just like it is for Steph [Curry], myself, Klay [Thompson]". However, he'll likely be placed on a minutes restriction at first.

Now it's just a matter of time before the lingering questions are answered: Can Cousins keep up with the Warriors pace?

Forward Draymond Green also believes it takes time to get the 28-year-old center involved into the team's system. After beating New Orleans, Draymond Green was asked about Cousins' return to the court on January 18th and Green said unequivocally, "All hell about to break loose". How well will he fold into such a star-studded offense? I'm going to help this team in whatever way I can. That's tough. Nonetheless, DeMarcus is one of the greatest talents in this league. "We want him to be that player that he knows he can be. We're going to make it work".

Golden State found its rhythm in the second half playing the second night of a back-to-back. Looney averages 6.6 points per game and 5.9 rebounds per game.
