cousin is shooting threes...SMH...
I was like...why is Cousin's FG bad...
1-3...oh in 2nd quarter. 2nd EFFING QUARTER.
THinking to myself..if he just focuses inside, he would DOMINATE...sigh...
I still can't understand why he's so hell bent on proving that he has perimeter skills. Just dominate in the post. Lots of guys can shoot 3's. Very few can truly dominate the paint.
Cousins with 21 and 9 now, still in the 3rd. . .
not sure why you would put Cousins with big night...
he shot 5/15...
It's one thing for rookie like jones to put up 20 points, but cousin in his third year and focus only on points....one of the premiere big man...sorry...but that's not very good...5/15....
It's good he got fouled a lot, that means he is attacking the basket. He had 3 3-point shot in first 2 quarters, and none after that. That's good. However, highly inefficient for big man to shoot 5/15.
he also does a lot of mid-range shots too.
Coach Cal really does know how to connect with players. I mean...How did he manage to get Cousin to dominate the paint.
I don't recall cousin shoot 3s or mid range jump shots. Always amazing touches around the rim.
21 pts and 9 rebs in 26 minutes is a big game in my book, dont really care if you disagree...
When I put that, those were his stats with about 4 minutes left in the 3rd quarter and then he really didnt play after that...
How does fouling out mean he's attacking the basket? Did he get several charge calls or something? To me its the same Cuz. At this point he should be very much improved. I realize its just preseason and I guess I hold Cuz to a higher standard. IMO he's the most talented all around big man in basketball. He shouldn't be fouling out so early, he should shoot a much higher percentage as well. Like I said I realize its just one preseason game and time will tell the story but at some point we've got to see some improvement in the mental aspects of the game from Cuz. If he's ever going to fulfill his potential.
He didn't foul out. . . he had 4 fouls. . .But, he shot 13 free throws, hit 10 of them. . . If he plays the end of the game, you figure he probably ends up with over 30 points and 12 or 13 boards. .. Not a bad night.
What are you talking about? Cousins is such a thug! 20+ points in 20 minutes or so is weak.
Look his numbers are nice if you ignore efficiency...
My perception was that D-cousin could end up being the best of all UK talent. I still actually feel that way.
Physically he measures better than Dwight Howard. Longer wingspan. wide body, very strong, and was measured same height. Of course explosiveness he loses to Dwight Howard.
Personally, i think he can become the best center in the league, even surpassing Howard.
He shot 45% from field last year...because he plays more like a 3 or 4 than a center. Maybe he wants to play 4...i don't know. However, Center is anchor of the paint.
If you compare the stats with greats like Shaq...he would have 9/15....not 5/15. Of course cousin has major advantage, which is he doesn't shoot free throw poorly. He actually shot 70% last year, and 10/13 is a very good start.
Harrellson 4pts, 3 rebs, 1ast
Bledsoe 41 minutes, 4 pts, 8rebs, 5 ast
New Orleans halftime
Davis 12 pts, 8 rebs, 1 blk
Miller 2 pts
MKG 0pts, 2rebs, 2 blk
so, Davis is picking it up faster than i thought. Jeez...already at 12 pts, 8 reb...
NO is drooling already.
EDIT:I guess they didn't play much after Half Time.
EDIT #2: Did MKG get benched or was he injured? He played 16 minutes.

Didn't play much after that. . . Ended with 12 and 9 in 29 mintues. Miller had 2 pts, in 11 minutes, and MKG finished with 1 point, 2 blocks, 4 rebounds, 1 steal, in 16 minutes. . .
