DeMarcus Cousins dunk highlights Warriors’ bounce-back win over Lakers

Warriors center DeMarcus Cousins, stone-faced, stood over his victim for several seconds as a capacity Oracle Arena crowd roared. Stephen Curry threw both arms in the air. As he ran down-court in the opposite direction, Kevin Durant pulled up his jersey to shield his eyes. Few could blame him. Moments earlier, Cousins caught a pass from Durant, took one giant stride into the key, extended his right arm and threw down a dunk over Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma, who went careening backward. So vicious was that third-quarter slam that many took to social media to eulogize Kuzma and his trade value...

Warriors push winning streak to 11 with rout of Pacers

INDIANAPOLIS — The Warriors had a scary moment early in the second quarter Monday night. After watching teammate Klay Thompson throw down a one-handed dunk, Stephen Curry jumped out of his seat, slipped on a blue jacket and tumbled to the floor. That was Golden State’s most noteworthy miscue, and the Pacers had nothing to do with it. The Warriors cruised to a 132-100 rout of Indiana at Bankers Life Fieldhouse to push their winning streak to 11 games and continue to raise an important question: Can anyone stop them? With DeMarcus Cousins beginning to return to his pre-Achilles-injury...

Warriors get tested by Celtics, but still push winning streak to 10 games

BOSTON — Since DeMarcus Cousins’ return last week from a torn left Achilles tendon, Golden State has looked borderline unstoppable, which isn’t necessarily surprising given that it boasts five All-Stars in their prime. But in their 115-111 win Saturday over the Celtics at TD Garden, the Warriors shed their air of invincibility — for one night, at least. Boston — the preseason Eastern Conference favorite — weathered a slew of Golden State rallies, made timely second-half stops and nearly handed the Warriors their first defeat in more than three weeks. Not until Stephen Curry hit...

Warriors push win streak to 9 with efficient dismissal of Wizards

WASHINGTON — The Warriors’ selflessness, not just their bevy of All-Stars, makes them such a logistical nightmare for opposing coaching staffs. Unlike previous teams anointed “super,” Golden State blends transcendent talent with the type of teamwork detailed in the game’s earliest textbooks. In their 126-118 win Thursday night over the Wizards at Capital One Arena, the Warriors were part Harlem Globetrotters and part Hickory High, pairing dazzling highlights with near-constant ball movement. Late in the third quarter, Golden State reached 30 assists for the fifth straight game to...

Klay Thompson puts on a 3-point show as Warriors defeat Lakers 130-111

LOS ANGELES — By this point, Warriors guard Klay Thompson is used to the speculation that he’ll sign with the Lakers in free agency this summer. The narrative is too juicy for media to resist: The son of a former center for the "Showtime" Lakers, Thompson grew up idolizing Kobe Bryant and heaving shots at Staples Center before players began their pregame warmup routines. Never mind that Thompson has publicly stated his intention to spend his entire career with Golden State. In the Warriors’ 130-111 win Monday night over the Lakers at the arena he grew up attending, Thompson showed just...

Despite fouling out, Cousins impresses in debut as Warriors beat Clippers

LOS ANGELES — The Warriors’ bench erupted into applause with 8:51 left in their 112-94 win over the Clippers at Staples Center on Friday night. As DeMarcus Cousins, grinning, joined them on the sideline, Golden State reserves stood to high-five him and pat him on the back. Never mind that Cousins had needed only 15 minutes to foul out. In his first game back from a torn left Achilles tendon that had sidelined him almost a year, Cousins showed flashes of his dominance, amplifying those bemoaning an end to competitive balance in the NBA. Though Cousins didn’t exactly resemble the...
