DeMarcus Cousins was a man possessed in Saturday’s 105-103 loss, notching 29 points, 19 rebounds, four assists, one steal, three triples and just one turnover while shooting 9-of-19 from the field and 8-of-9 from the free throw line.
Cousins has been downright absurd over the last five, averaging 26.0 points, 14.2 rebounds, 6.2 assists, 1.8 steals, 1.8 blocks and 1.8 triples. There were some questions about his fit in New Orleans but Boogie has been delivering first round returns all season long and doesn’t seem ready to slow down any time soon. His 5.0 turnovers per game on the year are brutal for 9-cat owners, but at least he limited the damage there tonight. Cousins is making a serious run at the top half of round one and his owners don’t have to do anything but sit back and enjoy the show.
