Tonight just gets better and better for the Warriors. After axing the Houston Rockets from the playoffs in Game 6 with a 118-113 win – a result which gives the team extra time to rest and recover before the Western Conference Finals – it was reported by the New York Times’ Marc Stein that DeMarcus Cousins is on track to return for the Warriors in the upcoming series.

This revelation comes after Cousins said he expected to return in the playoffs, but the impact could be monumental, especially with the Warriors unsure when Kevin Durant will be able to return. Klay Thompson, who scored 27 points tonight and anchored the Warriors in a first half when Stephen Curry went scoreless, was clear about the value of Kevin Durant in the upcoming round.

After the game, Thompson said, “If we want to get this three-peat, we desperately need [Kevin Durant] back… he’s our best player.”
