Pelicans Lose Big in Cousins First Game
After trading for All Star Demarcus Cousins, the Pelicans hosted the Rockets Thursday night. He managed to open his career in New Orleans with a good night racking up 27 points and 14 rebounds. Davis had a good night as well his 29 points.
However, their playoff run ultimately got off to a bad start as the Rockets simply beat the breaks off the Pelicans by a score of 129-99. Gordon and Williams came off the bench for the Rockets to combine for 46 points. It will take time for Davis and Cousins to get used to each other, but they will have to get it together fast if they want to be in the playoffs this year.
