Former Kentucky Wildcats in the NBA: Cousins’ double-double helps Kings to win


Andris Biedrins, DeMarcus Cousins
Demarcus Cousins (C/Sacramento): While the rest of the world has their eyes on “Boogie Smooth” and Cousins’ R&B album prank, he had a huge output on Monday night. He led all scorers with 35 points, 14 rebounds, three assists, and two blocks as the Kings ended their three game losing streak with a 102-97 win over the Pelicans.

Anthony Davis (PF/New Orleans): Opposite of the Kings, Davis was able to also put up some big stats after missing a game with an ankle injury on Saturday. Davis finished with 22 points, eight rebounds, four blocks, four assists, and two steals in the loss.

Darius Miller (SF/New Orleans): Miller played 29 minutes off the bench and added six points and three rebounds for the Pelicans.

John Wall (PG/Washington): Wall shot 25% from the field (4-of-16) and finished with 10 points and six rebounds, as the Wizards came up short against the Bobcats in a 100-94 loss.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (SF/Charlotte): MKG had three points and six rebounds in the win for Charlotte.

Terrence Jones (PF/Houston): Jones shot the ball well (7-for-10) and finished with 15 points and seven rebounds in the Rockets’ close win over the Suns, 115-112.

Brandon Knight (PG/Milwaukee): Knight led the Bucks with 25 points, nine rebounds, and seven assists but the Bucks fell short against the Pistons 115-111.

Patrick Patterson & Chuck Hayes (PF/Toronto): Neither Hayes nor Patterson were able to do much in a combined 14 minutes on the court; altogether they had two points and two rebounds in a 93-83 loss against the Heat, as Miami was able to reclaim first place in the Eastern Conference.
