And the rebuttal to their up and down play for much of the season has been some variation of, "they'll flip the switch when it matters most, in the playoffs" to "don't worry, DeMarcus Cousins returns soon and all will be fixed".

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr spoke with reporters on Tuesday and said Cousins was getting closer to a return.

Cousins, of course, has spent the past eleven months rehabbing from a torn Achilles tendon he suffered in a late January game last season for the New Orleans Pelicans against the Houston Rockets.

"I'm seeing dramatic improvement from him over the last couple of weeks, with his wind, his ability to run the floor", Kerr said after practice Monday afternoon, as quoted on the San Francisco Chronicle.

The Warriors will host the Knicks on Tuesday.

The Warriors, as of January 9th, are the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference, sitting one game behind the Denver Nuggets.
