BBNBA: Anthony Davis, DeMarcus Cousins Combine for 60 Points


@NBA

Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins continue to prove the New Orleans Pelicans have the best frontcourt in basketball.

Davis had a game-high 36 points, along with 9 boards and 2 blocks, while Boogie was two assists away from a triple-double — 24 points, 19 rebounds, 8 assists and 2 blocks.  Their efforts led New Orleans to a 119-116 win over Portland, a team they will have to fight down the stretch to enter the Playoffs.  Only 1.5 games separate No. 5 through 9 in the Western Conference standings.

Check out the best parts from Davis’ night.

DeMarcus’ highlights were just as impressive.

Darius Miller added 16 points.  Maybe even more impressively, the Pels were +27 when Miller was on the floor.  Rajon Rondo had a quiet 3-point, 2-assst night and DeAndre Liggins did not play.

Highlights

Karl-Anthony Towns’ Stranger Things inspired shoes are definitely highlight-worthy.

@DavidSherman

This pass might be prettier than those kicks.

The best of the best from John Wall’s 30-point performance:

      79 points by 4 UK players on 1 team, wow! Does Loserville even have 4 NBA players that suit up for a game?
