DeMarcus Cousins scored 38 points on 12-of-29 shooting (2-of-7 3PTs, 12-of-14 FTs) with 13 rebounds, seven assists, three steals and one block in the Kings’ 121-115 loss to the Clippers on Friday.
Cousins didn’t even look all that good in this one but he’s a beast and gets numbers. He’s returning just top-25 value this season because of efficiency issues and lower than normal defensive production, but it’s pretty early and the Kings are nowhere near clicking yet. And there’s a Kings joke in there but they are learning a new system with new players and that’s going to take more than 10 games.
