You never know what you have until it’s gone

It’s been a little over a month since DeMarcus Cousins was secretly traded from the Sacramento Kings to the New Orleans Pelicans, joining Anthony Davis to create a well-formed frontcourt.  This meeting will mark the first encounter between Cousins and his former team since being traded along with Omri Casspi, who is now with the Minnesota Timberwolves.  The Sacramento Kings drafted Boogie out of University of Kentucky and he would go on to play for them for seven seasons.  While playing for the Kings, DeMarcus Cousins averaged 21.1 points per game, 10.8 rebounds per game and 3.0 assists per game.  There have been many reasons floating around as to why Cousins was traded but many believed it was because of his harsh outbursts on the court.

The Sacramento Kings would head over to Smoothie King Center in New Orleans to take on the home team.  Cousins started off hot in the first half, going for 17 points and knocking down three 3-pointers.  When the second half was said and done, the home team would head into the locker room with a huge 58 to 38 lead.  In the second half, Boogie was determined to make Sacramento feel a sense of regret as he scores a total of 20 points and hitting a pair of 3-pointers.  His fellow teammate, Anthony Davis, would accept 19 points but it was DeMarcus Cousins who ended the night with 37 points and 13 boards as the Pelicans would go on to earn a huge blowout win 117-89.
