The Golden State Warriors blew a 31-point lead at home in the playoffs, and that wasn't even the worst news of the night for the team.

Starting center DeMarcus Cousins went down with a quad injury early in the first quarter that immediately sent him to the training room. He did not return to the game.

Cousins was set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer with an opportunity to get a max or close to a max contract if his health held up for the entire season. The timing of the quad injury couldn't have been worse because it takes away from his ability to contribute to a potential championship run, and the game happened in front of a national audience.
