Aaron Afflalo is regretting his decision to go to UCLA, via @PelicansNBA.

In his first game against his former team, DeMarcus Cousins destroyed the Sacramento Kings, leading the Pelicans to a 117-89 victory behind 37 points, 13 rebounds, 4 assists, 3 steals and 2 blocks.  Anthony Davis added 19 points, 12 rebounds and 5 blocks.

Cousins did not want to make the game about himself, but his teammates did.  “Of course it meant a lot,” Davis told reporters after the game. “We just wanted to get him the ball and help him have a great game. We were feeding him early in the game, late in the game.”  It worked.

Kentucky’s two Kings — Skal Labissiere and Willie Cauley-Stein — both started against Cousins and Davis, but had little luck slowing them down.  Willie was efficient (11 points, 5/8, 14 rebounds) but Skal could not find his shot against the superior Kentucky duo.  Labissiere was 5/16 from the floor to finish with 13 points and 8 rebounds.  Skal still found time to put one in Boogie’s eye.

John Wall was not happy with the officials after the Wizards fell to the Jazz by seven.  He was awarded a technical for this Rudy Gobert flop, putting him one away from an automatic suspension.

Showing no remorse, Wall told reporters in the locker room, “The refs made us lose this game.” The quote that will be overlooked from the video below: “I’m bleeding, and the ref tells me it’s not a foul.”
