The Golden State Warriors will have to play on without DeMarcus Cousins for the rest of their playoff stretch. Cousins was on the court during first quarter of his second playoff game when he fell to the ground. After heading back to the locker room, the Warriors announced he would be out for the rest of the game. An MRI early this morning revealed that Cousins had torn his left quadriceps. The injury will likely be season ending but Cousins will begin rehabilitation and decisions will be made from there.
It’s an unfortunate injury for Cousins, who signed a one year contract with the Warriors while healing from an Achilles injury. This was his first trip to the playoffs, after nine years in the league.
The Warriors held a 31 point lead with just 7 minutes left in the third but were on the losing side of the best comeback in playoff history by the end of the night. The Los Angeles Clippers won 135-131 tying the first round of playoffs 1-1.
