Cousins Assisting in Kings Winning Streak
Cousins scored 18 points and grabbed 16 rebounds Wednesday, but it was a pass to John Salmons for his sixth assist of the night that was his biggest play in helping the Kings beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 97-94 at Quicken Loans Arena.
It was the Kings’ second road win in 15 games.
“I know every time I touch the ball I’m going to draw two or three defenders, so I know I’m going to find somebody,” Cousins said.
“I keep saying I feel like when this team shares the ball, we’re hard to beat,” Cousins said. “And if I’ve got to take away from my shots just to get everyone else going in the spirit of sharing the ball, I’ll do that.”
The Kings are 5-3 in their past eight games and have won three of four since Cousins returned from a two-game banishment following an argument with coach Keith Smart on Dec. 21 in Los Angeles.
