Injuries to Klay Thompson and Kevon Looney could make ball movement like this even more important for Golden State.

DeMarcus Cousins can be a positive

Entering the series, there were doubts Cousins could help the Warriors trend in the right direction.

The four-time All-Star hadn't played since tearing his quad in the first round of the playoffs as the NBA Finals approached. He logged just eight minutes in Game 1 and only managed to score three points.

However, Cousins unexpectedly tallied 11 points, 10 rebounds and six assists in 28 minutes in Game 2. This is likely because of the injury to Looney, and he made the most of his opportunity. While he struggled with foul trouble early, he proved he can take on a heavier workload moving forward and not be too much of a defensive liability.
