More DeMarcus Cousins issues in Sacramento?
After playing DeMarcus Cousins just 18 minutes vs. the Warriors on Saturday, coach Mike Malone said he wants DMC to be a better "communicator" defensively.
"DeMarcus has shown that when he comes out and with energy and fire and emotion, he is arguably one of the best big men in the NBA," Malone said. Andrew Bogut scored easily on two post-ups to begin the game, and successfully drew a few fouls which seemed to take Cousins out of the game mentally. The result was his first dud of the season with eight points and seven rebounds, but he should bounce right back vs. the Hawks on Tuesday.
