Cousins outshined Davis but the Pelicans got the win last night


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.

    Good to see miller back on the court. Davis is unbelievable, and he’s not even close to his ceiling. Cousins still needs to work on some things, but he can dominate at times. Fun game to watch last night, don’t often get to see our guys teams on tv.

    I think the Commonwealth would be better off to never let Cousins back in the state. The guys a disgrace.

      He helps and gives to kids and communities. Donates his time and money and you think he is a disgrace because he is tough and not a candy ass on the basketball court? The league needs some tough fellows.

    You shut your stinkin pie hole Blueman. You’re probably one of the cornball asses who griped about his headband being too gangster too. Boogie for President

    ADavis and Big Cuz both played good, and ADavis’s team won by 13 pts, I would not sum up that game as Davis being outshined.

    I say the NBA all-star team should be Davis, Cuz, and Jorts on the front line. My 3 favorite big men from UK. May as well have Knight and Wall at guards too. All hypothetical but fun to think about.

    Shouts out to Drew for the constant reminders to vote for the Cats to get into the all-star game. I’ve never really voted for the all-star game before this year. Would be a great recruiting tool if the BBN constantly helped to vote our guys in.
