It was not enough to get the win.
That doesn’t make it any less impressive.
DeMarcus Cousins dropped 56 points on the Charlotte Hornets Monday, carrying Sacramento to within a last-second deep three of getting the win. Cousins was 21-of-30 shooting and did most of his damage in close, shooting 19-of-24 inside eight feet of the rim. Cousins was just too strong, too athletic for Charlotte to deal with. Yes, he also drained on three as well (on three attempts). Cousins also had 12 rebounds, but seven turnovers.
Charlotte’s Troy Daniels won the game in double overtime with his eighth three of the night.
