DeMarcus
Cousins
The games at this stage are more interesting as they can be crucial for the final standings in Regular Season. Despite we already know who is stronger and who is weaker, there may be still last minute surprises and upsets. Here is the last day review presented by ESL.

The most crucial game of the last day was a loss of Rockets (42-26) in Oakland on Wednesday night. Visitors were edged by Warriors (46-21) 106-104. It ended at the same time the nine-game winning streak of Rockets. They outrebounded Rockets 44-31 including 32 on the defensive glass. Warriors looked well-organized offensively handing out 28 assists. It was a good game for power forward DeMarcus Cousins (211-90, college: Kentucky) who led his team to a victory with 27 points, 8 rebounds and 7 assists. Bahamas-American guard Klay Thompson (201-90, college: Washington St.) contributed with 30 points and 6 rebounds for the winners. Warriors' coach used an eleven-player rotation in such tough game. James Harden (196-89, college: Arizona St.) answered with a double-double by scoring 29 points and 10 assists for Rockets. Defending champion maintains first place with 46-21 record which they share with defeated Rockets. Rockets at the other side still keep top position with 26 games lost. They share it with Oklah.City T..
Very important is a home loss of second ranked Magic (31-38) against fourth ranked Wizards (29-39) on Wednesday night. Host Magic was defeated by Wizards in Orlando 100-90. Bradley Beal (196-93, college: Florida) stepped up and scored 23 points, 6 rebounds and 7 assists for the winners and Thomas Bryant chipped in 21 points and 10 rebounds. The best for the losing side was Montenegrin center Nikola Vucevic (213-90, college: USC) with a double-double by scoring 20 points and 14 rebounds. Wizards maintains fourth place with 29-39 record. Magic at the other side keeps the second position with 38 games lost. Wizards will have a break next day, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Magic will play at home against Cavaliers and hopes to get back on the winning track.
An interesting game for Heat (32-35) which played road game in Detroit against 3rd placed Pistons (34-33). First ranked Heat had an easy win 108-74. It was a key game for the top position in the division. Josh Richardson nailed 13 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists for the winning side. Blake Griffin came up with 13 points for Pistons in the defeat. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Heat maintains first place with 32-35 record. Loser Pistons keep the third position with 33 games lost.
An interesting game for Thunder (42-26) which played road game in Brooklyn against 4th placed Nets (36-34). Second ranked Thunder managed to get a 12-point victory 108-96. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Nets. The best player for the winners was Russell Westbrook who had a triple-double by scoring 31 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists.

Nets at the other side keep the fourth place with 34 games lost. Thunder's next day opponent will be league's second-placed Pacers in Indianapolis and it will be for sure the game of the week.

The most impressive performance of 141th day was 18 points and 20 rebounds by Rudy Gobert of Utah Jazz.
