    If he's out the rockets can get a rematch of the WCF. As long as CP3 stays healthy I like our chances.

    This actually makes the Warriors better.

    Cousins is bad defensively and takes shots away from more efficient offensive players.

    Looney is great defensively and only scores on dunks and putbacks so his ORtg is insanely high.

    Also the Rockets will play GSW in Round two not the WCF lol

    Looney, Bogut are still enough to win out.

    It was never about DeMarcus but how Steph, Klay, Durant and Draymond played.

    I am neutral about this but I dun wish a major injury upon a talented player.

    Yea agreed I think we could've exploited him put him into pick and rolls. I don't think he would do well there.

    For the warriors it's timeout for point forward and point center.



    Bogut and cousins both unrestricted free agents so for them winning chpionship without major injury is top priority.

    Neither bogut or cousins under contract.

    Cousins need that 'ship then off to Lakers!

    I am thinking a tad differently.

    Cousins brings enough to at least give them a different look.

    Once Looney is unleashed, he was going to be more effective as team were preparing for a big like Cousins.

    Cousins is still somewhat useful.

    We're beating them with or without him.

    Cant say I feel sorry for him.

    Just another front runner that tried to take the easy way out.

    Warriors get lucky with injuries again. They are better with illegal screener Boguts

    exactly..... defensively looney and bogut are much better for them... although they are playing the clippers who dont exactly have the same firepower as the rockets so they look especially good against them.

    smh @ the fact this actually helps them. not only are they stacked but i swear they have the best luck in the postseason.

    My first reaction: dangit, matchups.
    But after remembering how they beat us last game without KD but with Cousins destroying Clint: meh, not a bad tradeoff. let's run it back!

    I think this will help us more if he plays w some discomfort or moving slower rather than him missing the series.

    Coz cousins did play well against us last game. Capela couldn’t guard him. But it also was because KD wasn’t playing so he had more touches.

    East is more Wide Open than the Wild Wild West.

    West has rarely been Wide Open.

    Him being out makes the Warriors better.

    I want to beat them at their best.

    Then there’s no excuse to be used by GS, and/or media placed asterisks on our championship (ie MJ was playing baseball)
