Watch: Highlights from Boogie’s First Game in New Orleans



DeMarcus Cousins’ debut for the New Orleans Pelicans began with a bang, but the night ended with a whimper.  The Houston Rockets pulled away from New Orleans in the second quarter and never looked back.  The Pelicans lost 129-99.

Still, there are plenty of highlights to share.  Davis finished with a team-high 29 points and 9 rebounds, but he didn’t fill the stat sheet quite like Cousins.  Boogie had 27 points, 14 rebounds, 5 assists, 5 steals and 4 blocks.  Cousins started strong, knocking down his first shot as a Pelican.

The crowd’s reaction to his make might be even better than slow motion.

The best of Boogie’s four blocks was this swat on James Harden.

His step-back was smooth, as usual.

The first official Kentucky connection: Cousins to Davis.

Of course, Boogie had to splash from three.

      Wow, a superstar, who doesn’t even know the plays, gets sent to a mediocre team with another superstar, changing the entire dynamic of said team, not to mention the players have practiced together maybe twice, and they didn’t come together perfectly in their first game and dominate a solid Rockets team? No f****ing way!!!

    It’ll take time for them to get the spacing and chemistry correct. Yeah they lost by 30 BUT don’t forget that the Pelicans had one of the worst rosters in the league! Adding Cousins certainly improved it BUT they’ll still need a few more pieces to compete especially in the Western Conference. They need a PG and some spot up shooters. It’ll never happen but how great would it be if they had Wall as the PG and Booker as the SG 😄

      I was kinda hoping they’d trade T. Jones for Knight… but that’s just the BBN fan in me 🙂

    It’s such a shame that NOLA has no respectable perimeter shooters (other than Boogie) or good defensive wings, because this team is one or two depth players away from being scary. I just hope that CP3 decides to come back to NOLA this summer and officially cement their status as a contender.
