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.
