Three thoughts after Warriors beat Rockets narrowly in Houston

Chris Paul Rockets Warriors

The Warriors have one of the best moving offenses, especially when they play without one of their superstars.

"Everybody has been healthy so it helped our main core to be consistent in our performances and being able to communicate game after game and build off that", Capela said.

"We didn't learn nothing that we didn't already know", guard Chris Paul said after the Rockets' nine-game winning streak was snapped and any realistic hope of catching the Warriors for the West's top seed was extinguished. "So, it's a matter of staying on them about details and them staying engaged in practice and in film sessions, and then us bringing the necessary energy every night".

With approximately 15 games remaining in the regular season, the Warriors continue to be the team to beat in the National Basketball Association.

Washington (29-39) has won five of eight games and is now three-and-a-half games out of the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

Houston carries a nine-game winning streak into this matchup with Golden State and has won all three of its meetings against the reigning champs.

"We weren't going to out score them, we had to buckle down and get stops and just try and control the tempo of the game as much as we could". "We know what it takes to win on the road. You can't really have letdowns with this team because they'll make you pay, and that's what happened". However, since 2016, Golden State has lost just once in the last four matchups in OKC. Steph Curry added 24 points.

What we know so far about the Christchurch mosque attack suspect
A suspect in the mass shootings at two New Zealand mosques on Friday appeared in court on Saturday and was charged with murder. Dressed in a white prison tunic, handcuffed and flanked by two police officers, Tarrant stood passively in the dock.

"I mean, it's cool", Cousins said.

Still, this year's iteration of the Thunder presents a stiffer challenge than the one the Warriors overcame 11 months ago. "That's the goal. I'm gonna have to guard somebody, and I'm looking forward to it". George has averaged 28.2 points, 8.1 rebounds and 4.2 assists in 65 games this season.

The Warriors have their number in the postseason.

"They have to", Gordon said. "Paul George has had a tremendous season and Steven Adams has always been very effective against us". Kevin Durant's production is like clockwork.

A recent slide at the end of February saw Warriors center DeMarcus Cousins receive criticism from fans and media for his defense, leading teammate Draymond Green to step in and redirect blame to the entire team.

Bryant had 21 points, with 10 of those coming in the final stanza, to go along with 10 rebounds (four offensive) as well as one assist and two blocks in 25 minutes off the bench. It seems like they still have the ability to get to that level based on Wednesday night's win.

Some have wondered if Cousins is a good fit with this fast-paced team and there have been some growing pains as he's been worked into the team after missing the first 47 games this season recovering from an Achilles' tendon injury.
