DeMarcus
Cousins
The Regular Season in NBA is almost over. Almost everything is clear. There are only 7 days left. Here is the last day review presented by ESL.

The most crucial game of the last day was another loss of Nuggets (51-26) in Denver on Tuesday night. Hosts were defeated by Warriors (53-24) 116-102. Warriors outrebounded Nuggets 55-40 including a 42-28 advantage in defensive rebounds. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 36 assists comparing to just 22 passes made by Nuggets' players. Great defensive blocking was one of the keys in this match when Warriors made 11 blocks. Power forward DeMarcus Cousins (211-90, college: Kentucky) orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 28 points, 12 rebounds and 5 assists. Kevin Durant (206-88, college: Texas) contributed with 21 points and 6 assists for the winners. Canadian swingman Jamal Murray (198-97, college: Kentucky) answered with 17 points and 5 steals for Nuggets. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Defending champion maintains first place with 53-24 record which they share with defeated Nuggets. Nuggets at the other side still keep top position with 26 games lost. Warriors will have a break next day, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Nuggets will play at home against the league's second-placed Spurs and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
An interesting game for Thunder (45-33) which played road game in Los Angeles against their close opponent Lakers (35-43). Fourth ranked Thunder had an easy win 119-103. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Lakers. Point guard Russell Westbrook (190-88, college: UCLA) stepped up with a triple-double by scoring 20 points, 20 rebounds and 21 assists for the winners and Paul George chipped in 19 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists and 5 steals. Guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (196-93, college: Georgia) responded with 23 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists. Both coaches tested many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Thunder moved-up to second place, which they share with San Antonio S. Lakers at the other side keep the fourth position with 43 games lost.
An interesting game for Rockets (50-28) which hosted in Houston 3rd placed Kings (38-40). First ranked Rockets had an easy win 130-105. James Harden nailed a double-double by scoring 36 points (!!!) and 10 assists for the winning side. Buddy Hield came up with 20 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists for Kings 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. Rockets have a solid series of three victories in a row. They maintain first place with 50-28 record. Loser Kings dropped to the second position with 40 games lost. They share it with Orlando M.. Rockets will meet league's second-placed Clippers in the next day and it will be for sure the game of the week. Kings will have a break next day.
The game in Atlanta was also worth to mention about. Second ranked Spurs (45-33) played at the court of 5th ranked Hawks (28-50). Spurs managed to secure a 6-point victory 117-111. The best player for the winners was DeMar DeRozan who scored 29 points, 7 rebounds and 7 assists. Both coaches allowed to play bench players saving starting five for next games.
