Cousins backed down Aron Baynes, and it didn't take much for the Celtics center to fall backwards and draw an offensive foul. The Golden State big man wasn't too happy with the call, as evidenced by the ensuing Boston brouhaha.

After scoring 20-plus points in three consecutive games, Cousins scored just 10 on 4-of-12 shooting from the field. He missed all five of his 3-point attempts, and the Celtics went at him directly on the defensive end in the first half.
Cousins still is finding a rhythm after returning from a ruptured Achilles in January, and clearly is adjusting to his new teammates and being back on the court. After Tuesday's loss, he -- and the rest of the Warriors -- will have to go back to the drawing board.
