While DeMarcus Cousins is “not that close” to making his season debut as he continues to recover from a torn Achilles tendon, he is healthy enough to dunk on teammate Kevin Durant.
Cousins and Durant played a friendly game of one-on-one Friday at the end of the Warriors’ practice. The game concluded when Cousins backed down Durant and threw down a vicious dunk.

“That’s game!” an emphatic Cousins yelled while Durant remained sprawled out on the court.
“He beat me today, Durant said. “But I live to fight another day.”
Cousins, who tore his Achilles tendon in January, has recently been practicing with the Warriors’ G League affiliate in Santa Cruz.
