DeMarcus Cousins had a very eventful Warriors debut.
The big man opened the evening with a monster dunk one and a half minutes in, and showed flashes throughout, including three incredibly smooth looking 3-pointers. Cousins also fouled out after just 15 minutes, finishing with an impressive line of 14 points, six rebounds, and three assists.
Fouling out after 15 minutes is rare. Even rarer is getting a standing ovation after doing so, which is exactly how the Warriors bench greeted Cousins after his first game since last April.
If Cousins’ performance on Friday is any indication on how he’s going to look this season, the rest of the NBA is in big trouble.
