New Orleans Pelicans at Denver Nuggets: How to watch, preview and more

Nuggets coach Michael Malone had the highest praise for the big man he used to coach in Sacramento, saying DeMarcus Cousins “might be the most talented player in the NBA.”

Sluggish Clippers fall to Pelicans, 111-103

Sluggish Clippers fall to Pelicans, 111-103

LAC put forth a decent effort, but ultimately DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis proved to be too much to handle. Led by 35 points and 15 rebounds from DeMarcus Cousins, the New Orleans Pelicans handed the L.A. Clippers their fifth consecutive loss with a 111-103 win in the Big Easy on Saturday evening. The Clippers struggled to generate consistent offense all night long, and at times there was obvious fatigue with the team playing the second half of a back-to-back. Regardless, LAC battled throughout and had plenty of chances to steal a victory tonight. Blake Griffin once again led the way...

Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins are holding up their end of the bargain

Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins are holding up their end of the bargain

The New Orleans Pelicans have been decidedly mediocre to start 2017-18. Through eight contests, the Bayou franchise places 17th in offensive rating (104.0), 19th in defensive rating (105.2) and 16th in net rating (negative-1.2). They don’t gobble up rebounds as their roster suggests they should (14th in rebound rate at 50.3 percent), they don’t distribute very well (15th in assist-to-turnover ratio at 1.42) and their 3-5 record currently has them outside of the playoff picture almost one-tenth of the way through the year. However, for all of New Orleans’ issues, apart from it just being...

Wolves 104, Pelicans 98: Another Close Win

Wolves 104, Pelicans 98: Another Close Win

The Wolves survive an onslaught from Demarcus Cousins for their third win in a row The New Orleans Pelicans are some sort of strange anomaly in today’s NBA after doubling down on big men last season when they acquired Demarcus Cousins in a league that is getting smaller by the year. This experiment has been interesting so far, but it’s still unclear if the combination of Cousins and Anthony Davis can truly be successful in the NBA or if those two will continue to dominate independent of the rest of their team. The answer to that tonight landed somewhere toward the latter, with those two...

DeMarcus Cousins is dominating as a distributor and 3-point shooter

New Orleans Pelicans big man DeMarcus Cousins, already one of the most dominant centers in the league, has added new dimensions to his game. DeMarcus Cousins (5.9) is averaging more assists than Kyrie Irving (5.7) & more 3-point attempts (7.3) than Kevin Durant (6.4) — Jim Petersen (@JimPeteHoops) November 1, 2017 Rajon Rondo, who was expected to start at point guard for the Pelicans, is out with an injury. As such, Cousins and combo guard Jrue Holiday have found roles as lead distributors for the team. Though still early, Cousins is currently averaging more assists per game than star...

New Orleans Pelicans ride DeMarcus Cousins to 3rd largest come from behind win in franchise history against Kings, 114-106

New Orleans Pelicans ride DeMarcus Cousins to 3rd largest come from behind win in franchise history against Kings, 114-106

There is nothing as sweet as that unexpected comeback! On a night the city of Sacramento cheered DeMarcus Cousins return, the New Orleans Pelicans managed to steal the show, tying for the third largest comeback in franchise history with a win over the Kings, 114-106. Without Anthony Davis (left knee quad tendonitis) and trailing by as many as 19 points early in the third quarter, the Pelicans were staring at their fourth loss in five games to start the season. All of those fire-Alvin Gentry and Dell Demps chants were on the verge of getting infinity louder as the prospects of yet another...

Pelicans 114 - Kings 106: The Boogie Revenge Game

Pelicans 114 - Kings 106: The Boogie Revenge Game

Sacramento blew a huge lead in their loss to New Orleans. The big story walking into the evening was the return of DeMarcus Cousins to Sacramento. He was given a (mostly) standing ovation during introductions and the Kings also opted to play a well put together tribute video for the controversial big man. A standing ovation for @boogiecousins in his return to Sacramento pic.twitter.com/zNEdFxumT9— Sacramento Kings (@SacramentoKings) October 27, 2017 The game opened with an easy Boogie dunk, and a sense of unease briefly took over the crowd, but that feeling was soon to be...

The Bird Calls Podcast Ep. 47: Boogie’s Sacramento return and what to expect from Kings mix of veterans and rookies

Expect a show on TNT, but a win will be at the forefront of all New Orleans Pelicans minds. The New Orleans Pelicans wrap up their three game western road trip in Sacramento this Thursday night in yet another must win scenario against a team they crushed behind Demarcus Cousins just last March. But they do so against a very different looking Kings team. The Kings used three first round selections to bring in rookie of the year candidate De’Aaron Fox , Justin Jackson, and the still recovering Harry Giles (whom fans can expect to see in February). They used the sum of their salary cap...

NBA Preview: DeMarcus Cousins should have something special in store for his return to Sacramento

With the Kings blindsiding Boogie last February, it’s Cousins turn to serve a dish of nasty! The New Orleans Pelicans (1-3) must recover quickly after a tough loss to the Portland Trail Blazers that saw Anthony Davis go down with a knee injury. The Sacramento Kings (1-3) enter the game following a loss to the lowly Phoenix Suns. The question is, will DeMarcus Cousins and possibly the Browless Pelicans have enough firepower to dispel a subpar Kings roster? One thing is for certain though: expect for Boogie to come out guns blazing! Not only will he be the focal point of the Pelicans...

The Sacramento Kings will reportedly tribute their former star big man DeMarcus Cousins when he returns to the Golden 1 Center tomorrow. Kings plan on thanking @boogiecousins for his play on the court & generosity in the community during in-game programming tomorrow, source. — Marc J. Spears (@MarcJSpearsESPN) October 25, 2017 Cousins, now with the Pelicans, recently spoke about his experience playing in Sacramento (via ESPN): “I should have left when I had the chance and avoided it all, cause they told me what would happen. All last year I felt like that’s all it was about. ‘I got...

How will Kings fans react to DeMarcus Cousins’ return?

How will Kings fans react to DeMarcus Cousins’ return?

Much like his tenure in Sacramento, expect a mixed reaction DeMarcus Cousins returns to Sacramento tonight for his first game since the Kings traded him to the New Orleans Pelicans last February. Cousins was a polarizing figure throughout his tenure in Sacramento. One subset believed Cousins was the future, and was blindsided by the trade. Another subset felt the trade was long overdue, and had long ago grown tired of his antics. I’d say the majority of the fan base fell somewhere in the middle. So the question now is how will the Kings faithful welcome back Boogie? I expect mostly cheers...

Blazers Bench Bullies DeMarcus Cousins after Anthony Davis Injury

Blazers Bench Bullies DeMarcus Cousins after Anthony Davis Injury

Portland earned a 10-point victory over the Pelicans, but required unusual means to do so. Anthony Davis went down with a knee injury and Jusuf Nurkic sat out most of the game as the Portland Trail Blazers and New Orleans Pelicans faced off tonight. With those moments defining the evening, this game was never destined to be a classic. As is true of most NBA contests, less-expected heroes arose in the place of fallen stars. DeMarcus Cousins cranked out 39 points and 13 rebounds without blinking. CJ McCollum torched the Pelicans with 16 points in the fourth quarter. The enduring accolades...

New Orleans Pelicans lose Anthony Davis to injury and then the game to Trail Blazers, 103-93

Despite the odds, DeMarcus Cousins nearly led the Pelicans to the upset victory. Trying to beat the Trail Blazers in Portland is never an easy task, but it becomes especially difficult when the visiting team is asked to do it without their best player. This was the predicament the New Orleans Pelicans found themselves in on Monday evening after Anthony Davis was forced to exit just 5:01 minutes into the contest. Initial reports blamed bumping knees with Maurice Harkless on the first play of the game, but later Jen Hale divulged that AD had originally tweaked his knee in pregame. As...

Several themes have emerged in the early goings. We go in-depth on two of them. Brendon Kleen of Bourbon Street Shots and Justin Jett of Pelican Debrief joined me to talk about the state of the Pelicans after the first two games of the season. Although New Orleans started was unable to notch a victory against the Grizzlies and Warriors, don’t look at Anthony Davis nor DeMarcus Cousins — they’ve been incredible! No, the problems lie elsewhere. We go in depth on several of the biggest topics sitting at the forefront of all minds: the befuddling continuous struggles of the richest man in...
