DeMarcus Cousins scored 16 points (6-9 FG, 2-3 3PT, 2-2 FT) to go along with three rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one block over 14 minutes as the Clippers lost to the Nuggets 110-104 on Saturday.
Cousins played a highly efficient game on Saturday, scoring 16 points over 14 minutes. The veteran F/C has now scored 16 points in back-to-back games and hit double figures in 4-of-5 contests. He's starting to look more comfortable and should be a tremendous help to the Clippers down the stretch. But he's a better real-life contributor than a fantasy one.
DeMarcus Cousins scored 16 points (6-14 FG, 0-3 3PT, 4-4 FT) with 11 rebounds, two blocks, and one assist over 25 minutes as the Clippers lost to the Pelicans 120-103 on Monday.
This was Cousins' best game in a Clipper uniform. He picked up his first double-double for LA and put in some quality minutes off the bench for the shorthanded Clippers. He could continue to see some big minutes on Wednesday vs. Phoenix with Kawhi Leonard injured, Nicolas Batum getting hurt on Monday, and Paul George potentially missing time with an ankle.
DeMarcus Cousins provided 11 points (4-6 FG, 1-1 3PT, 2-2 FT) with six rebounds and one assist over 13 minutes in the Clippers' 113-112 win over the Blazers on Tuesday.
This was Cousins' best game as a Clipper, scoring the most points (11) and hauling in the most rebounds (six) since joining the team. He scored six of his points in the fourth quarter as both teams kept going back and forth. Cousins has really taken a back seat on the loaded Clippers, only averaging 4.4 points and 2.4 rebounds since joining the team. He seems perfectly content in his role and should continue to provide the yeoman's work for LA.
Free-agent C DeMarcus Cousins has reportedly signed a second 10-day contract with the Los Angeles Clippers, per Shams Charania.
Cousins played in three games for the Clippers during his first 10-day contract, averaging six points and three rebounds across roughly 10 minutes per game. The team can either opt to roster him through the end of the season or let him go after his second 10-day contract expires. Serge Ibaka (back) has missed 15 games with a back injury, so adding depth behind Ivica Zubac is important for the Clippers to continue pushing towards earning the one or two-seed in the Western Conference.
Free-agent C DeMarcus Cousins will reportedly sign a 10-day contract with the Los Angeles Clippers pending clearance of the league's health and safety protocols, per Shams Charania.
Cousins spent time on the Lakers and Rockets this season before being waived by Houston on February 23rd. The four-time All-Star will look to add depth and experience to a talented Clippers' roster as it prepares for another deep postseason run in the Western Conference. Boogie averaged 9.6 points and 7.6 rebounds across 20.2 minutes in 25 games for Houston prior to being waived and could become a good streaming option in deeper leagues once he officially clears protocols and signs with the Clippers.
