Sacramento picked up a big New Year’s Eve win over Houston thanks to strong offensive night — Rudy Gay had 25 points and continues to be efficient since the trade, and he was one of five Kings in double figures.
Then there was DeMarcus Cousins — 17 points, 16 rebounds and this coast-to-coast dunk. That is the way to start the new year (well, it wasn’t yet where he was playing, but I get the idea).
There are just not big men around with Cousins’ skill set, guys who can go coast-to-coast like him.
