It was a close battle the whole game between the Golden State Warriors and the Houston Rockets
Big man hits the deck! Cousins can't actually be serious here.
His arms flailed behind him and slapped the hardwood as if he was doing a back flip into a swimming pool. He probably would've gotten the charge had he stood strong and let Harden's impact be more convincing for the refs, but no.

However, Cousins was able to redeem himself and have a big night, scoring a season-high 27 points, while posting 8 rebounds and 7 assists. It turned out to be a game to remember for the star big man, though his flop certainly belongs on 'Shaqtin A Fool' in the near future.
