The Sacramento Kings schedule just doesn’t get any easier this month. Next 4 opponents have a combined 40-14 record this season.
BTW, Cousins defends Davis when the Pelicans go small with Davis as a center with Anderson at PF.
Malone also said he respects what Monty Williams does defensively and not expose Anthony Davis to fouls by guarding bigs like Cousins.
Malone admits he's biased but said Cousins is the best big man in the game.
Devin & El Camino HS advance in state playoffs -Eagles now 48-3 on the season! http://t.co/j9FPgeE3nR
Omri Casspi is technically a former Pelican. Was traded here in the Omer Asik deal, waived though.
Malone always points out the maturation of Cousins began before Team USA and he made strides last season, too.
Malone said it's time to give credit to DeMarcus Cousins for his growth, not just Team USA or another force, give him credit for maturing
I felt it would be good if the Kings went 1-3 on this trip, come back at 8-8 and look ahead to December's schedule. 2 wins now = sensational
By the way, how about Jason Thompson? Perfect example of a guy buying into his role. His defense vs. Anthony Davis was huge.
Omri Casspi's 22, DeMarcus Cousins with 22pts, 12 rebs. His 11th double-double, 7th straight in Kings 3rd straight win. Sac 5-3 on the road.
What an effort by the Kings! No Rudy & Darren, Malone ejected and they come together for a quality road win. Guaranteed a .500 road trip!
No Collison. No Rudy Gay. Kings still win. 2-0 on the trip so far.
FINAL: Kings 99, Pelicans 89.. Cousins and Casspi with 22 points each to lead the Kings.
The Sacramento Kings improve to 9-5 on the season, beating the Pelicans on the road 99-89.
Jason Thompson might have picked up some early votes for being selected to one of the NBA's All-Defensive teams. He's been terrific.
Cousins gets two more FTs as Anderson is again offered up as a sacrifice
I don't fault Ryan Anderson, but if Anthony Davis is supposed to walk on water and Asik is there, why not try them on Cousins?
Kings up 97-85 with 2:23 to play.
I'll never understand why Ryan Anderson is ever asked to defend DeMarcus Cousins.
Kings build the lead to 14 in New Orleans. Sacramento looking like they are really playing some inspired ball.
Sessions gives Kings a 95-81 lead with 4:05 to play with a 3.
Omri Casspi, folks.
Stat of the night so far - Ryan Anderson 3/6 from 3-point land, the rest of the Pelicans 0/9.
Cousins barely avoids getting on an Anthony Davis poster. Yikes!
Cousins to the table.
Kings doing a fantastic job by limiting Pelicans bigs. Anthony Davis limited, Omer Asik practically a non-factor
Shorthanded Kings up 85-76 with 8:54 left to play. Complete team effort tonight with the bench stepping up big, led by Ray McCallum
McCallum 4/5, Stauskas 4/6, Landry 4/5 for combined 28 points off the bench. Solid.
Kings lead 85-76 with 8:54 to play.
Nearly the entire Kings bench is up calling out the defensive assignments
Wow. Ray McCallum is earning minutes right in front of our eyes.
Stauskas is noticeably more aggressive tonight on both ends of the floor.
Kings take a 75-70 lead into the fourth quarter
Kings take the 75-70 lead into the fourth quarter in New Orleans.
