New Orleans Pelicans 114 – 106 Sacramento Kings
After a rather dramatic end to his career in Sacramento, California with the Kings, DeMarcus Cousins returned with his new team the New Orleans Pelicans to Sacramento and sure enough he was not the once beloved figure with Kings fans as he used to be as the fans showed him with a smattering of boos here and there.
The Game was intense and fast, The Kings came out of the gates on fire led by Veterans Zach Randolph and Vince Carter along with Rookie De'Aaron Fox shooting lights out in the early going but the Pelicans kept their poise and never panicked eventually containing the Kings and slowly chipped at the lead. In the fourth Quarter DeMarcus Cousins unleashed a beast of a performance to take over the Game and ending with a season high 41 points and 23 rebounds.
The Pelicans thanks to a superb performance by Cousins prevailed with a score of 114 – 106.
