Watch Anthony Davis, DeMarcus Cousins trade buckets Tuesday night


If you were otherwise preoccupied and not watching NBA games last night, we fully understand. Far more important things were taking place.

But if you want a distraction from the fallout of Tuesday night, watch Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins go at it.

Davis represents the new generation of bigs who can play almost as a wing or near the rim, and he dropped 34 on the Kings with just 22 shots. Cousins represents the evolution of the traditional big man — he can hit the midrange (or three) if you leave him, but his game is power, and he dropped 28.

The Kings got the 102-94 win because they have more around their stud big man than the Pelicans (who fell to 0-8 on the season).
