DeMarcus Impresses in his Golden State Warriors Debut

IM-BACK-2

Boogie returned to the court almost a year after rupturing his left Achilles tendon and impressed with 14 points, six rebounds, three assists and three 3-pointers before fouling out in 15 minutes in the Golden State’s victory over the Clippers 112-94

“Felt like a kid on Christmas,” Cousins said. “It’s been a long journey. This is probably one of the best days of my life.”

DeMarcus scored the Warriors’ first two points with a thunderous one handed dunk down the middle of the lane assisted perfectly from teammate Kevin Durant.

Golden State ended up outscoring Los Angeles by 21 in the 15 minutes Cousins was on the floor. He shot 5-of-11 from the field and got many of his threes on wide open looks.

When asked how it was to have so many wide open looks, DeMarcus laughed: “This is a first! Like, in my entire basketball career. I could definitely get used to this.”

DeMarcus and the Warriors will next face off versus the Los Angeles Lakers in a Martin Luther King primetime matchup on TNT.
