Re: Fanfare, festivities accompany Kings’ opening-night win
Cousins had game highs of 30 points and 14 rebounds. He made 13 of 26 shots and also had two blocks and two steals.
"He carried us," Malone said. "We went to him time and time again. He can score and make plays for his teammates, and he can get us into the bonus early so we can get to the foul line and get easy buckets."
With efforts like Wednesday's, there won't be much reason to question why the Kings have put so much faith in the fourth-year center.
