Boogie Triple-Doubles Again, but Kings Fall
Prior to Friday in Sacramento, Wilt Chamberlain and Elgin Baylor were the only players in NBA history to record back-to-back 20-point, 20-rebound, 10-assist games.
DeMarcus Cousins joined the club thanks to his huge 24-point, 20-rebound, 13-assist night against the Pelicans.
However, the Kings were unable to complete the comeback and fell for the second time in a week to New Orleans.
- The 13 assists were a career-high for Cousins, who tied his previous career-high in Wednesday's game with 10.
- The last member of the Kings with back-to-back triple-doubles was Chris Webber in February of 2005.
- Rudy Gay missed his second-consecutive game while adhering to League-mandated concussion protocol.
- Sim Bhullar, looking to become the first player of Indian descent to play in the NBA, was a DNP-CD
