BBNBA: Pelicans get first W since the big trade, but Cousins is still winless

The New Orleans Pelicans picked up their first win since the All-Star break last night, as well as the first win since DeMarcus Cousins joined the team. The only problem with that is that DeMarcus Cousins didn’t play last night, serving his one-game suspension due to picking up his 18th technical foul of the season. Let’s take a look at what the other Cats in action did with Cousins sitting out.

Quick congrats to AD for hitting the 7,000 point mark on his career.

Don’t forget, there’s a point guard hidden in that tall and lanky frame.

Big KAT is on a tear as of late. He just keeps getting better.

Apparently, Skal is a rim protector now. Labissiere got his first career NBA start last night.

Cuts off the baseline for a two handed flush.

Jamal Murray, Denver Nuggets (110-98 win over Bucks)

MIN FG 3PT FT OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS
 30  4-13  2-9  0-0  1  0  1  5  2  1  2  1  +15  10

Jamal got it going in the 1st quarter with a rare start last night.

bbnba-noel

Nerlens Noel, Dallas Mavericks (100-95 loss to Hawks)

MIN FG 3PT FT OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS

A Nerlens block on one end leads to a Mavericks’ bucket on the other.
