Boogie Nights: Warriors counting on big Finals from DeMarcus Cousins

Boogie Nights: Warriors counting on big Finals from DeMarcus Cousins OAKLAND, Calif. — Of all the storylines that emerged from Game 2 of the NBA Finals — the Raptors' "quarter from hell," Warriors guard Klay Thompson limping off the court, Nick Nurse's "janky" box-and-one defence — a key element that got lost in the drama was the emergence of Golden State centre DeMarcus Cousins. The big man nicknamed "Boogie" had 11 points, 10 rebounds, six assists and two blocked shots over 28 minutes while playing in foul trouble in Golden State's 109-104 win in Toronto on Sunday. Cousins' performance is a welcome sign for a Warriors team that will need him to step up.

OAKLAND, Calif. — The NBA says Toronto's Marc Gasol should have been given two free throws with 49 seconds left of Game 5 of the NBA Finals in Toronto, a game that the Raptors lost to Golden State by one point.

Gasol was fouled by the Warriors' DeMarcus Cousins on a drive, the NBA said in its Last Two Minute Report that was issued Tuesday. Gasol missed the shot and tumbled to the floor, but no foul was called.

Golden State led 106-103 at the time. The Warriors wound up prevailing 106-105, staving off elimination and sending the series back to Oracle Arena for Game 6 on Thursday night.

The NBA said Cousins moved into Gasol, "initiating contact that affects his driving shot attempt."
