In his last five games, DeMarcus Cousins has averaged 32.6 points per game shooting 50.5 percnet (and 71.4 percent from three), plus is pulling down 14.8 rebounds a contest. He looks like a guy who should be going to Toronto as an All-Star, a big man putting up numbers and pushing the Kings into the playoffs in the West.
He did it again Saturday night, dropping 48 on the Indiana Pacers while pulling down 13 boards in a Kings’ win. He made 17-of-29 shots, and 21 of those were within eight feet of the rim as Jordan Hill could not begin to slow Cousins down. What he did to the Pacers he’s been doing to everyone.
