DeMarcus Cousins 22 points in 23 minutes vs Blazers, 0-3 from 3
DeMarcus Cousins scored 22 points and grabbed 7 boards in just 23 minutes during Monday’s preseason win against Damian Lillard and his new group of Portland teammates.
Boogie was also 9 of 17 from the field but 3 of those 8 misses were from downtown – it will be interesting to see if the long range attempts becomes a norm in his repertoire. He’s been showing off the outside touch all summer in alumni and charity games and has “joked” about being a shooter during camp. I know those were just no-D games and yesterday was just a preseason game but Boogie does have the ability to hit the 3. He also has the ability to dominate in the paint like no other center in the league today so I’m not sure George Karl is going to want the best big man in the league taking lower percentage shots.
