BBNBA: Boogie’s first game in New Orleans

Last night was a big night for former Kentucky Wildcats in the NBA for multiple reasons. The first and most obvious being that it was the first time that Cats fans could see Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins play alongside each other for the New Orleans Pelicans. On top of that, both Willie Cauley-Stein and Skal Labissiere got the chance to play huge minutes for the Sacramento Kings with Cousins no longer playing 35+ minutes in the post.

Cousins’ first night in New Orleans wasn’t a great result on the scoreboard, but he and Davis both had big nights. Boogie with the first points of the game.

And some footwork on the outside for Big Cuz is pretty.

Willie goes for a career high 29 points. Incredible. Here’s a beauty of a move to the rim.

Everybody eats as WCS and Skal celebrate another Willie bucket.

Skal Labissiere also went for a career-high in points tonight. Skal got in on the action with a tip slam.

Nice fading jumper from Labissiere here.
