Two of Big Blue Nation’s favorites met up in the NBA last night when Anthony Davis’ New Orleans Pelicans traveled to Sacramento for a Christmas Eve Eve game against DeMarcus Cousins and the Kings. Their former teammate at Kentucky, Darius Miller, also saw six minutes of action in only his fifth appearance of the season for New Orleans.
Cousins led the Kings in scoring and the game in rebounds with 24 points and 14 boards in the 113-100 loss. Davis was a close second with 21 points and 11 rebounds. Tyreke Evans was the game’s star, though, scoring 25 points off the bench for New Orleans against his former team. Miller recorded an offensive rebound and a block in six minutes.
All this is just one big reminder to vote for Cousins and Davis on the NBA All-Star ballot. And because we love and miss them in Lexington, of course.
