DeMarcus Cousins has agreed to a 10 day contract with the Denver Nuggets, as reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. Cousins appeared in 22 games for the Milwaukee Bucks earlier this season, the last time he’s played professional basketball. At the very least, he’s no stranger to playing with other amazing big men (like Giannis Antetokounmpo), so playing with Nikola Jokic shouldn’t be a huge adjustment.

 

Question of the Day: Is Russell Westbrook a winning basketball player?

His record in the playoffs will tell you no. Other sources will tell you yes. One thing’s for sure, and that’s that head coach Frank Vogel doesn’t think Westbrook is a winning player. Westbrook was benched during the final minutes of a game against the Indiana Pacers, and when asked about it, Vogel said this:

“{I played} the guys that I thought were going to win the game”

When Jokic put up his 49-point triple-double against the Clippers, it was his third triple-double in a row. During these last three games, he’s shot a ridiculous 55% from the field. The only other player to have a longer streak of triple-doubles with this efficient shooting is NBA legend Wilt Chamberlain, during the 1968 season. His consistency has also raised him to the top of the Kia MVP Ladder.
