Chris Paul #3 of the Houston Rockets reacts after a basket against the Golden State Warriors during Game Four of the Western Conference Finals of the 2018 NBA Playoffs at ORACLE Arena on May 22, 2018 in Oakland, California.
After a few games of frustration following All-Star Weekend, DeMarcus Cousins returned to stride against the Charlotte Hornets, recording his fourth straight double-double - 24 points and 11 rebounds - in the Golden State Warriors' win.
His run of games with 30 or more points was the second-longest in league history behind a 65-game streak by Wilt Chamberlain.
The win improved Golden State to 43-17 at the top of the Western Conference standings as they seek to earn the No 1 seed after finishing behind the Houston Rockets a year ago.
The Warriors rallied within 61-54 at halftime, then opened the second half with a 10-2 burst to take their first lead of the game at 64-63 in the third minute of the third period.
Tonight was one of those games for Steph. Clint Capela grabbed 15 boards.

"If you play with the right spirit, there's nothing that can stop you", said Paul, who also set a record as the 8th National Basketball Association player to surpass 9,000 career assists. "If you look at it, we won the rest of the game by nine points, but 35-20 in the first quarter is not going to get it done".
"I enjoyed the atmosphere and tried to do the little things to help my team win and not get caught up in the stats when we're winning games".
Cousins admitted the 31-minute mark was the highlight of his night. They know who they are.
Now, Gordon is working overtime to try and make up for his sluggish start, as the former lottery pick - who was once regarded as one of the NBA's top scorers off the bench - has recently shown signs of returning to old form.
Westbrook finished with 41 points on 15-of-30 shooting with 10 rebounds.
Warriors guard Stephen Curry said he had seen the rule enforced "plenty of times", playfully noting that Cousins just needs to toss it slower next time.
