DeMarcus Cousins and Joel Embiid had a pretty epic duel on Monday night. Whether they were slapping each other on the rear end or matching each other shot for shot, it was certainly entertaining when they were on the floor.

“I like that kid a lot,” he said. “I don’t give a lot of people props. I think he’s got a great chance to be the best big in this league … after I retire.”

(Said Kings coach Dave Joerger:) “He’s terrific. It should be illegal to be that big and that skilled at the same time,” Joerger said. “He’s got a terrific future. … The sky is the limit. Goodness gracious, is he good. He’s really good.”
