Kings 5th road win last yr -Jan 15th in MN, accomplished same feat tonight in NO b4 Thanksgiving #NBA #SacKings @CSNAuthentic @CSNKings

Ben McLemore

Winners of my essay contest in STL. Won a full Thanksgiving meal for their families. Faces say it all. #lovethekids http://t.co/yEd9F3sJSB

Jason Jones

BTW, Cousins defends Davis when the Pelicans go small with Davis as a center with Anderson at PF.

Jason Jones

Malone also said he respects what Monty Williams does defensively and not expose Anthony Davis to fouls by guarding bigs like Cousins.

Jason Jones

Malone admits he's biased but said Cousins is the best big man in the game.

Bill Herenda

Devin & El Camino HS advance in state playoffs -Eagles now 48-3 on the season! http://t.co/j9FPgeE3nR

Jason Jones

Omri Casspi is technically a former Pelican. Was traded here in the Omer Asik deal, waived though.

Jason Jones

Malone always points out the maturation of Cousins began before Team USA and he made strides last season, too.

Jason Jones

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

Sean Cunningham

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.

Sean Cunningham

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.

Dave Mason

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!

Brian May

The @Sacramento Kings beat the @New Orleans Pelicans 99-89. Kings are now 9-5 to start a season for 1st time since 2004-05.

Sean Cunningham

Kings improve to 9-5, now 2-0 on this 4 game road trip with a short-handed 99-89 victory in New Orleans. #NBAKings

Sean Cunningham

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.

Jason Jones

Cousins gets two more FTs as Anderson is again offered up as a sacrifice

Jason Jones

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?

Bill Herenda

Kings up 12 97-85 2:23 to go in the 4th in the Big Easy. Can Sac finish? #NBA #SacKings @CSNAuthentic @CSNKings

Jason Jones

Kings up 97-85 with 2:23 to play.

Jason Jones

I'll never understand why Ryan Anderson is ever asked to defend DeMarcus Cousins.

Bill Herenda

Back to back 3’s by Casspi & Sessions extend Kings lead to 14 95-81 4:05 in Q4 #NBA #SacKings @CSNAuthentic @CSNKings

Kings flex cut variation well defended by NO last poss -not easy to do. Sac up 7 5:25 to go in 4th #NBA #SacKings @CSNAuthentic @CSNKings

James Ham

Stat of the night so far - Ryan Anderson 3/6 from 3-point land, the rest of the Pelicans 0/9.

James Ham

Cousins barely avoids getting on an Anthony Davis poster. Yikes!

Bill Herenda

9 pts 4-6 from floor for Stauskas in quality minutes good outing for the rookie #NBA #SacKings @CSNAuthentic @CSNKings

Bill Herenda

Here comes Cousins Kings leading 85-78 8:14 to go in 4th #NBA #SacKings @CSNAuthentic @CSNKings

James Ham

Cousins to the table.

Sean Cunningham

Kings doing a fantastic job by limiting Pelicans bigs. Anthony Davis limited, Omer Asik practically a non-factor

Sean Cunningham

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

James Ham

McCallum 4/5, Stauskas 4/6, Landry 4/5 for combined 28 points off the bench. Solid.

Jason Jones

Kings lead 85-76 with 8:54 to play.

Jason Jones

Nearly the entire Kings bench is up calling out the defensive assignments

James Ham

Wow. Ray McCallum is earning minutes right in front of our eyes.

Jason Jones

Stauskas is noticeably more aggressive tonight on both ends of the floor.

Bill Herenda
