DeMarcus Cousins posted his first triple-double of the season during a brutal 106-100 loss to the Pacers on Wednesday, scoring 25 points with 12 rebounds, 10 assists, one steal, three blocks, nine turnovers and one 3-pointer.
This was a really, really bad loss for the Kings. They blew a 22-point lead in this game to put them on a three-game losing streak. Worse yet, Rudy Gay (Achilles) is expected to miss the rest of the season. In his minutes not next to Gay, Cousins has a whopping 39.9 usage rate and actually has better efficiency, too. The bad news is there is an 11.6 net rating differential with Boogie-Rudy lineups and lineups with Boogie and no Rudy. Cousins will have some massive stat lines, but he's more likely to be rested at times this year. Jan 19 - 1:43 AM

DeMarcus Cousins hit 8-of-20 shots for 31 points with 11 rebounds, seven assists, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer on Sunday against the Thunder.

The big man has shown his passing abilities more often this season, averaging a career-high 4.1 assists per game. He has dished out at least five dimes in 10 of his last 11 games and has flirted with a triple-double several times during that stretch. Tonight’s double-double, marked his fifth consecutive one. Fantasy owners should be content with his production this season.

DeMarcus Cousins handed out a season-high 11 assists during a 120-108 loss to the Cavs on Friday, adding 26 points with eight rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes.

The Kings are not playing well again and are sitting in the No. 9 spot with the Pelicans and Nuggets only 0.5 games behind them. As for Cousins, his passing has been a trend lately, averaging 6.7 per game over his last seven. His scoring is slightly down with just 23.1 points per game in that span, but he'll be closer to 30 in no time.

DeMarcus Cousins reportedly intends to sign a massive extension with the Kings during the offseason.

Kings management and Cousins have reportedly tossed around numbers, and the deal could be for as much as $207 million over a five-year period. To be clear, a deal won't be able to come to fruition until after July 1, 2017, and a lot could change between now and then, but the Kings front office has been adamant about their commitment to DMC as a franchise cornerstone ever since Vlade Divac took the reigns as GM.
Jan 11 - 10:04 AM

DeMarcus Cousins scored 24 points and helped the Kings snap a three-game losing streak with a 100-94 win over the Pistons on Tuesday.

Boogie hit 8-of-14 shots from the field and 4-of-7 from the line, adding 13 rebounds, six assists, one block, one steal and four triples. He only played 30 minutes because of foul trouble, but he dominated in the fourth quarter. DeMarcus Cousins promised that he will make an R&B album if he's voted into the starting lineup of the All-Star game, so let's make sure that happens.

It appears the Kings have changed course and apparently do not intend to rest DeMarcus Cousins anytime soon.

Coach Dave Joerger seemed to back away from the initial plan to rest DeMarcus Cousins. "Probably not," said Joerger when asked if resting Cousins was in the cards. DMC has played in all 37 games for Sacramento this season and is averaging a career-high 34.6 minutes. However, the Kings have reeled in minutes slightly of late, playing him less than 32 minutes in two of their last three games.
Jan 10 - 1:31 PM

DeMarcus Cousins struggled with foul trouble on Sunday and played only 29 minutes, scoring 17 points with 10 boards, five assists, two steals, two blocks and seven turnovers.

Cousins flipped out after getting his third personal foul and wound up drawing a technical -- his 11 techs trail only Russell Westbrook this season, and he's five away from a mandatory one-game suspension. Other than that, fantasy owners have no grounds for complaint with his elite production in recent week.
Jan 9 - 12:52 AM

DeMarcus Cousins scored 25 points during a 106-98 loss to the Clippers on Friday, adding 11 rebounds, seven assists, three steals, two blocks and three 3-pointers.

His increased assists have been a trend lately, averaging 6.2 per game over his last five. Cousins has been a little down in the scoring over that span, averaging 24.6 points, 7.0 boards, 2.4 steals and 1.8 treys in that span. He's a complete beast.
Jan 7 - 1:34 AM

DeMarcus Cousins hit just 4-of-15 shots for a season-low 13 points, six rebounds, two steals and zero blocks in 32 minutes on Wednesday.

He's been nearly as hot as any player in the league and was due for an off night. He previously had games of 14, 15 and 16 points this season, and bounced back with 30, 22 and 31 points in the following games, so he should get back on track on Friday against DeAndre Jordan and the Clippers.
Jan 5 - 6:57 AM

DeMarcus Cousins scored 31 points on 10-of-25 shooting in Tuesday's 120-113 win over the Nuggets.

This was a huge win for Sacramento, as they held onto the No. 8 seed in the West and now have a 15-19 record. The Nuggets, Blazers and Pelicans are all within two games of the Kings, but Cousins' outlook for the rest of the season will be great if the Kings can remain in the playoff chase. He added six rebounds, six assists, one block and three triples in 34 minutes.
Jan 4 - 1:13 AM

DeMarcus Cousins scored 26 points in a 112-98 loss to the Grizzlies on Saturday, adding four rebounds, five steals, five turnovers and a season-high eight assists.

He was not happy with how the Kings gave up so many treys late in the game. "I'm sick of these [expletive] excuses," Cousins said. Chances are this quote will get extremely overblown because that's just what happens with Boogie. Whatever the case, he's playing great ball and turned in a solid game in a really tough matchup.

DeMarcus Cousins scored 28 points against the Blazers on Wednesday, but it wasn't enough and the loss snapped a four-game winning streak.

Boogie finished 8-of-19 from the field with eight rebounds, six assists, two steals, one block and three triples, but the Blazers did a much better job defending him after he dropped 55 points on them the last time they met. On a side note, the NBA rescinded one of Cousins' technical fouls, so he now has seven on the season -- 16 technicals is an automatic one-game suspension.

DeMarcus Cousins not only dropped 30 points, seven rebounds, five assists, three steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers on 10-of-20 shooting on the Sixers, but he also blocked Joel Embiid's game-winning 3-point attempt to seal a 102-100 win for the Kings on Monday.

Embiid regrouped and still got a good shot off, but it was well short, or his growing reputation would have reached epic proportions last night. As for Boogie, he hit the game-winning 3-pointer and hit a clutch free throw as well, saying after the game that he loves Embiid and predicted he'll be the best center in the game "once I retire." Cousins has scored between 30 and 55 points in four of his last five games and is averaging 34.2 points, 8.4 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.6 steals, 1.8 blocks and 2.6 3-pointers on 50 percent shooting over his last five. He's also knocking down 82 percent of his free throws over that stretch, making him possibly the hottest player in the entire league.

DeMarcus Cousins helped lead the Kings to victory during Friday's 109-105 win over the Wolves, tallying 32 points, seven boards, seven assists, three 3-pointers, four steals, two blocks and five turnovers in 37 minutes.

In general, Cousins has been better with the turnovers this season committing just 3.0 a night on average, and when you partner that with his gaudy contributions of 29.0 points (career-high), 10.7 boards, 3.3 dimes, 1.1 steals, 1.5 swats and 1.8 triples (career-high) per contest, you’ve got top-12 value in standard 9-cat leagues.

DeMarcus Cousins attempted eight free throws in the final 1:07 of Wednesday's game, finishing a comeback road win in Utah with 21 points, eight rebounds and three assists.

Rudy Gobert is one of the best individual defenders in the league, and the Jazz are toughest against centers for fantasy purposes. Cousins was also coming off an exhausting 55-point effort on Tuesday, and he had to battle for everything he got tonight. He finished 5-of-18 from the field and 10-of-13 from the line, with one block and three turnovers in 31 minutes. Occasional DNPs will be a thorn in his fantasy owners' side, but there's no cause for complaint with his current first-round value.
