The Golden State Warriors didn't have to work up too much of a sweat in their efforts to dispatch the Los Angeles Clippers in Game 1 of their first-round postseason series Saturday. That doesn't mean, however, that Steve Kerr and Co. don't have a few headaches to deal with as they chase an ever-elusive 16-0 run through the ​NBA Playoffs and a third straight championship.

The elephant in the room? ​The man who no longer wants to be called Boogie. And to hear Kerr tell it, ​don't get too excited about a rotation heavy on DeMarcus Cousins in crunch time.

The Golden State Warriors are set to get DeMarcus Cousins back from injury and we evaluated the roster, and new-look starting lineup . Just prior to when the target date for Cousins to get back on the floor was revealed, Warriors coach Steve Kerr offered a positive outlook on the 28-year-old big man.

As crazy as it sounds, the ​Warriors really area a better team from an efficiency standpoint with the "Hamptons Five" grouping of Steph Curry, ​Klay Thompson, Andre Iguodala, Kevin Durant, and Draymond Green than they are with any lineup that includes Cousins. It's not rocket science-- Cousins has never been a top-quality defender, and he's been downright poor on that end of the floor since making his way back from an Achilles injury.

Injured DeMarcus Cousins unlikely to return this postseason Center DeMarcus Cousins is unlikely to return this postseason for the Golden State Warriors yet won't require surgery on his torn left quadriceps muscle. Coach Steve Kerr has named Andrew Bogut as the starter in place of Cousins for Thursday night's Game 3 against the Los Angeles Clippers at Staples Center. The first-round series is tied 1-1.

The Warriors are arguably the best roster the NBA has ever seen. Each player is top five in their position, and they even took a The Warriors adding another former high usage player will diminish his fantasy value. Cousins didn’ t have a ton coming into the season given the injury, but even when

Seriously, whose spot does the big man deserve? Certainly not the one belonging to Green, the defensive linchpin of the entire team. And Iguodala? He has been generally hibernating over the last couple regular seasons, but absolutely cranks it up for the playoffs. Most importantly, he can make a difference for the Dubs without needing the ball, something Cousins can't say for himself.

And it doesn't have to be any more complicated than that.

Kerr says Warriors' best lineup doesn't include Cousins

Warriors beat Nuggets, increase lead for top seed in West.
Kevin Durant emphatically showed who is still No. 1 in the West, delivering a pair of jarring dunks late in the first half and finishing with 21 points and six assists before being ejected to lead the Warriors past the Denver Nuggets 116-99 in a matchup of the top two teams in the conference. DeMarcus Cousins had a season-best 28 points for the Warriors, who have a two-game lead and the tiebreaker on Denver with five games to go in the chase for the Western Conference's top playoff seed.
