DeMarcus Cousins could be nearing his NBA debut for the 2018-19 season, and no one know that better than Kevin Durant. The man known as “Boogie” threw one down on the Warriors forward on Friday and yelled “that’s game” at his floored teammate.

Cousins has been recovering from an Achilles injury he suffered last season, but has spent some time with Golden State’s G League affiliate, the Santa Cruz Warriors. The 28-year-old is a four-time All-Star who averaged 25.2 points, 12.9 rebounds and 5.4 assists in 2017-18.
He’s rumored to be targeting a return in early 2019, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
The Warriors are currently 21-11 and third in the Western Conference. With Cousins available, Golden State’s starting lineup could feature five All-Star caliber players.
Cousins is working on his conditioning so he’s as close to 100 percent as possible when he finally dons a Warriors jersey, and Golden State is in no rush to get him on the court.
Golden State will take on the Mavericks in Oracle Arena on Saturday.
