DeMarcus Cousins scored 24 points during a 111-104 win over the Grizzlies on Saturday, adding 10 rebounds, five assists, one block, two steals and two 3-pointers in 39 minutes.
He's basically been the Russell Westbrook of bigs with league-leading 224 turnovers while he's also made just 41.6 percent from the field over his previous January games. He also had an uncharacteristic three-game streak of scoring below 20 points. On the other hand, Cousins has been a double-double machine with 11 in his last 12 and he continues to lead bigs in dimes. Jan 20 - 10:26 PM

The Pelicans' three-game win streak ended in Atlanta on Wednesday, despite DeMarcus Cousins' 19 points, 14 rebounds, seven assists, two blocks and one steal.

Cousins missed a potential game-winner and New Orleans walked away with a disappointing 94-93 loss to the cellar-dwelling Hawks. As usual, Boogie's huge numbers came with a few asterisks tonight, as he made 6-of-17 FGs and 6-of-8 FTs with five turnovers in 35 minutes. He'll get some rest before facing Marc Gasol and the Grizzlies on Saturday.
Jan 17 - 11:04 PM

DeMarcus Cousins hit 7-of-20 shots, 1-of-6 3-pointers and 4-of-6 free throws for 19 points, 15 rebounds, five assists, three steals, zero blocks and seven turnovers in Tuesday's 116-113 overtime in at Boston.

Boogie wasn't all that efficient tonight and the seven turnovers, compared to just one for Anthony Davis, have been an issue all season. He's struggling with his shot right now, hitting just 11-of-36 over his last two games, but once they start falling again, look out. The 5.4 turnovers over his last five games are annoying and right on course, as he's averaging 5.0 per game on the season. Despite the negatives, he's playing at first-round value this season and his shot should start falling soon.
Jan 16 - 10:21 PM

DeMarcus Cousins collected a career-high seven steals vs. the Knicks on Sunday, adding 15 points, 16 rebounds, five assists and three blocks in 45 minutes.

The Pelicans had an incredible 17 steals as a team tonight, all from the starters, and they scored 22 points off turnovers tonight. It wasn't a perfect night for Cousins by any means, as he made 4-of-16 FGs and 7-of-12 FTs, with five turnovers, but you can't fault his ability to pile up counting stats. Cousins is averaging career-highs in assists (5.1) and 3-pointers (2.3) this season, and he's yet to miss a game.
Jan 14 - 7:39 PM

DeMarcus Cousins posted 24 points, 19 rebounds and eight assists with two blocked shots over 36 minutes in Friday's victory against the Trail Blazers.

Boogie was on point in this one, nearly notching his fifth 20-20 game of the season. He has managed three games with 20 or more points and 19 or more boards across his past six outings, and he has posted two blocked shots in each of the past four starts. As long as he continues to maintain his composure on the court, he is a fantasy stud.
Jan 13 - 12:51 AM

DeMarcus Cousins led the Pelicans with 29 points on Wednesday, hitting 6-of-15 FGs and 12-of-17 FTs with five 3-pointers, eight rebounds, three assists and two blocks.

Anthony Davis (sprained right ankle) was out tonight, so predictably Cousins was very busy despite being the focal point of the Memphis defense. He committed five turnovers tonight but that's nothing new, as his 5.0 miscues per game lead the NBA by a wide margin (Russell Westbrook is second at 4.5). Cousins hasn't missed a game this season, of course, so it's all good for his fantasy owners
Jan 11 - 12:45 AM

DeMarcus Cousins had 20 points (7-of-14 FGs, 5-of-7 FTs), 10 rebounds, four assists, two steals, two blocks and five turnovers in 40 minutes on Monday.

Cousins didn't score in the first quarter and he let his frustration boil over with a technical foul. That gives him eight technicals after the Pelicans' first 39 games, so he's on pace to flirt with the maximum 16-tech limit this regular season. Anthony Davis sprained his ankle late tonight and didn't return, leaving him questionable for Wednesday's game in Memphis -- if he can't suit up, Cousins should have an atmospheric usage rate.
Jan 8 - 11:38 PM

The Pelicans are "determined" to re-sign DeMarcus Cousins in free agency this summer.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski said the franchise hasn't invited trade offers on Boogie, and that makes sense with the team sitting in 8th place in the Western Conference. Unless the Pelicans have a terrible stretch before the trade deadline, we'd imagine that they will be buyers (wing depth) and not sellers.

DeMarcus Cousins scored 23 points with 15 rebounds, five assists, three blocks, seven turnovers and two 3-pointers in 39 minutes against the Wolves during a 116-98 loss on Saturday.

He did have a minor ankle tweak in the fourth quarter, but he looked fine after only about 10 seconds of hobbling. Cousins really has to get his turnovers under control and he's leading the NBA in that department. Besides that, he continues to be one of the best stat-sheet stuffers in the NBA.
Jan 6 - 11:56 PM

DeMarcus Cousins played just 31 minutes during a 108-98 win over the Jazz on Wednesday, scoring 19 points with 11 rebounds, one assist, two steals, one block, two 3-pointers, four turnovers and five fouls.

He did turn his ankle in the first half, but he did return and looked fine. Cousins also picked up his third foul early, so that explains why his playing time is lower than usual. Cousins is a stat machine and ranks second in the NBA for double-doubles while leading all centers in assists and 3-pointers per game.
Jan 4 - 1:43 AM

DeMarcus Cousins (ankle) went to the locker room in the first quarter on Wednesday, but he has since returned to the bench.

Coach Alvin Gentry called timeout and Cousins limped to the locker room under his own power. It looks like he's avoided any serious injury, but we should have details after the game.
Jan 3 - 9:20 PM

DeMarcus Cousins scored 29 points with 19 rebounds, four assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 40 minutes during a 105-103 loss to the Knicks on Saturday.

He just missed yet another 30-20 game following his 32-20 vs. Dallas on Friday. Cousins also just missed a 3-pointer at the end of the game to cost the Pelicans yet another home loss to a non-playoff team -- the Knicks are .500 after the win. The Pelicans have been an offensive powerhouse with their third-ranked points per game, so that's helped both Anthony Davis and Boogie post monster stat lines almost nightly.

DeMarcus Cousins scored 32 points with 20 rebounds, eight assists, five blocks, two steals, six turnovers and three 3-pointers in a 128-120 loss to the Mavs on Friday.

Now that's a stat line. It's another 30-20 for Boogie as he becomes the first player since Kevin Love in 2010-11 to have three 30-20 games in a season -- it's not even January yet. Cousins also had his first five-plus block game since Nov. 25, so that's another nice little bonus here. His upside on a given night is as high as anyone and who cares about turnovers anyway?

DeMarcus Cousins scored 27 points with 14 rebounds, five assists, one steal, one block, two turnovers and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes against the Nets on Wednesday.

Only two turnovers may be the highlight here, but Boogie bounced back from his quiet 16-point, seven-point Saturday. In his last 12, Cousins has looked like that superstar we saw earlier, averaging 27.7 points, 11.4 boards, 4.9 assists, 1.4 steals, 1.3 blocks and 2.2 treys on 52.1 percent from the field and 70.8 percent from the line. Yeah, the 5.0 turnovers per game over those 12 is rough, but his owners can't really complain too much.
Thu, Dec 28, 2017 12:10:00 AM

DeMarcus Cousins posted 26 points across 33 minutes in Friday's 111-97 road win against the Magic.

Orlando head coach Frank Vogel moved Marreese Speights into the starting lineup for some size, but he was no match for Boogie. He finished with 11 rebounds, six assists and three steals while hitting 9-of-16 from the field. The big man also knocked down 8-of-11 from the charity stripe as well. He might turn the ball over a bit too much, and he did so four times on Friday, but he contributes so well in multiple categories that fantasy owners don't mind the miscues.
