Golden State makes amends but what if a Warriors Rockets playoff awaits
Golden State was led by Klay Thompson's 30 points on 5-for-10 3-point shooting, and received a huge game from DeMarcus Counsins, who finished with 27 points, eight rebounds and seven assists in 27 minutes.
"He just played probably the most complete game since he's been here", said Klay Thompson, whose 30 points included three layups and a 3-pointer off feeds from Cousins. This was his first outing with more than 5 boards since February 8.
They're also tied with the Oklahoma City Thunder for the third seed with an identical 42-26 record.
"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. The two-time defending champions hold the best record in the Western Conference and now sit in the coveted #1 seed in the playoffs.

The Warriors, 4-6 in their previous 10 games but 46-21 overall, snapped the Rockets' season-best winning streak by striking an effective inside-out balance. Eric Gordon added 17 points while the Houston bench, which played a significant role in a victory over Charlotte on Monday, produced just 18 points.
"It's OK", added James Harden, who led the Rockets with 29 points.
"Again, make or miss, we just tried to put pressure on them".
We say it all the time.
He felt the Rockets competed for the entire 48 minutes as he quickly scratched off the result as just one loss on the season tally. "I mean, listen, it's one loss", Harden said. "I think each night we've had somebody else different step up and that's big because when you get to the playoffs and start playing the same team over and over, they start to understand what you do".
As Beyonce, a Houston native, sang on "6 Inch", (although not at all related to sports) "Come back, come back, come back". So it's good to have multiple guys that can step up every night.
National Basketball Association scoring leader James Harden netted 29 points and added 10 assists to lead the Rockets (42-26), who also got 24 points from Chris Paul and 13 points and 13 rebounds from Clint Capela.
"It doesn't matter who scores or whatever, we're just playing to win the game", he said.
Sometimes we've played a little bit too fast and shot too many quick bad shots, instead of letting him get down on the block and controlling things.
When Cousins settled for a one-year deal with Golden State, a lot of folks figured he could be a solution to the Rockets' switch-intensive defensive scheme that often baited the Warriors into relying on isolation instead of their typically handsome ball movement. On Sunday night the Suns went into Oracle Arena and defeated Golden State for the first time since a 107-95 victory on November 9, 2014.
