The Golden State Warriors came back from 17 to pick up their first win of the season, rallying to beat the New Orleans Pelicans 128-120 Friday night at Smoothie King Center. Cousins stuffed the stat sheet 28 points, 10 boards, and career-high 7 rejections.

The Pelicans led 64-61 at halftime, but Golden State made a charge in the final 1:57 of the half, outscoring New Orleans 13-2, with six points coming from Durant. Cousins is in midseason form, having drawn his first technical foul of the season late in the fourth quarter when the outcome had been decided.

Of course, you are probably not alone, so the bookmakers will fade any away value they can.
Curry, Thompson (24 points) and Durant (22) combined for a 92 points.
