It wasn’t Boogies’ Best Night for Team USA


DeMarcus Cousins’ play in the second game at the Rio Olympics against Venezuela was reflective of his team’s performance — a slow, whistle-filled start, followed by moments of domination.

The first quarter ended in an 18-18 tie.  Cousins had two fouls and didn’t touch the stat sheet.  Team USA slowly built up a decent lead in the second quarter, all without Boogie after he picked up his third foul.  When Cousins returned in the second half, he went right to the rim; it didn’t matter who was in his way.

Cousins’ game ended early, fouling out with 3:30 left in the game.  He had 6 points and 5 rebounds in the 113-69 win.  It wasn’t the most exciting game to watch, but at least you could see a UK fan sitting behind Coach K.
