DeMarcus Cousins Scores Season-High 40 (30 in the 2nd half) vs the Nets
On Friday night against the Nets, DeMarcus Cousins scored 30 of his season-high 40 points in the 2nd half of a win for the Kings and Boogie still found a way to get mad at a teammate.
“As far as (Rondo’s) rebounding it kind of gets on my nerves. He’s stealing my boards, man.”
He and I are obviously joking and he couldn’t be happier about seeing his new point guard grab enough boards to get his 3rd triple double in the past 4 games. Despite the double figure boards by Rondo, Boogie still grabbed a game-high 13 before fouling out late in the game.
3 of his fouls came in a frustrating first half that saw Cousins only make 1 out of 10 shots. The 3rd quarter was a very different story as he scored 21 in the quarter on dunks, jumpers and 3-pointers.
“Cousin does everything – rebound, hit 3s, block shots, pass the ball. He is quite a unique player,” teammate Kosta Koufos said. “I’m just glad he’s on our team.”
