Pelicans’ Cousins Breaks Out For 41 Points


After corralling a Jrue Holiday miss in a crowd of dark blue jerseys and powering through a James Ennis swipe that sent his trademark headband flying but the ball in off the glass, DeMarcus Cousins went Super Saiyan, flexing low while rearing his head back for a big roar.

And with 41 points — the most since his trade from the Sacramento Kings during the All-Star break — in a 95-82 win over the Grizzlies on Tuesday, Cousins unveiled the next level the Pelicans can hit in the future and, potentially, to finish out a season that suddenly has some life to it.
