Anthony Davis and the Pelicans had no answer.
DeMarcus Cousins overpowered the Pelicans on his way to 40 points on 16-of-29 shooting, plus he pulled down 16 rebounds. He was in beast mode.
Still the Kings came-from-ahead to lose to a scrappy Pelicans team, 115-112. The Kings turned the ball over 24 times — Cousins had five of those, he was part of the problem — and their defense could best be described as in a Matador style (just wave the cape as they run past). Rajon Rondo and Darren Collison both made a ton of bad decisions. The Kings are wasting what Boogie can bring, and they need changes in the front office, on the bench, and up and down the roster this summer.
