James Harden out for Rockets at Warriors with flu symptoms


"He's been cussing me out, you know, just about stop thinking about it and just go play my game - be aggressive", Cousins said. "I don't think it's a really serious injury, but we'll have an update [Sunday] I guess".

Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports Draymond Green, the mercurial forward for the two-time defending-champion Golden State Warriors, is close to hiring Paul.

Although referee Michael Smith called the sixth foul, Foster was the target of Harden's blistering postgame comments. "It's only going to continue to get better and so baby steps".

All the while averaging just 12.8 points per game on 31.2 percent from 3-point range, as the former Indiana Hoosiers product began to show little to any signs of confidence in his jump shot.

Gordon drained 25 points to power the Rockets, who held on even as the Warriors threatened within 4 points, 116-112, with 30 seconds left.

After the game was over, Green was not concerned that the injury would linger and walked out of the locker room in good spirits. "I'll keep that in mind".

The good news for Cousins and the Warriors is that after struggling to find a rhythm the past couple of weeks, he had his best performance since returning to the lineup on January 18, finishing the night with 24 points, 11 rebounds, three assists and three blocks. "I just pass it", he said. Cousins grabbed the shoe and flipped it off the court, where it was caught by a front-row fan.

Also, Khris Middleton scored 28 points, Giannis Antetokounmpo had 27 points and 10 rebounds, and the NBA-leading Milwaukee Bucks pulled away for a 140-128 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves.
