Surprisingly, DeMarcus Cousins wasn’t one of the Pelicans’ featured scorers in Saturday’s win, though he still finished with helpful numbers of 16 points, seven rebounds, eight assists, two steals, three blocks and a triple while shooting 5-of-7 from the field.
Cousins did pick up five fouls but still played 29 minutes, and you can bet he won’t settle for single-digit shots too many more times this season. The Pelicans decided to spread the love a bit tonight and while Boogie’s scoring suffered the rest of his game was right on track. He’s been a first-round asset so far this season and shouldn’t slip too far past the top-15 at this point.
