Tip-Off for 3/29/13 (featuring Walt “Clyde” Frazier): DeMarcus Cousins shows out in the Sacramento Kings 117-103 victory over the Phoenix Suns
We have yet to see the full scale of DeMarcus Cousins’ talents.
It’s no secret DeMarcus Cousins is the most talented young big man in the NBA today. Doubt creeps in when Cousins says and does things which overshadow his undeniable potential. If Cousins was with a stable organization with solid individuals, questions about his character would be moot. Against the Phoenix Suns, Cousins’ talents were on full display in the Sacramento Kings 117-103 rout.
Bucks 113 – Lakers 103 – Larry Sanders scored a career-high 21 points and grabbed 13 rebounds as the Bucks snapped a four-game losing streak. Kobe Bryant scored 30 points and Dwight Howard grabbed 15 rebounds for Los Angeles.
Pacers 103 – Mavericks 78 – The loss dropped the Mavericks a game and a half behind the Lakers for the final playoff spot in the West. The Mavs scored 37 points in the second half and trailed in every statistical category. Paul George scored a game-high 24 points and Roy Hibbert had 11 rebounds for Indiana. Dirk Nowitzki led Dallas with 21 points.
Kings 117 – Suns 103 – DeMarcus Cousins took advantage of injuries to Marcin Gortat and Jermaine O’Neal to post a season high 34 points and 14 rebounds. Cousins even dropped a three-pointer for good measure. Luis Scola led Phoenix with 25 points. The Kings outscored the Suns in the paint 62-42.
