As long as they can remain prominent in the Western Conference, he will remain an elite big-man, with tremendous upside across the entire box-score.
The future has indeed changed for the franchise with Cousins guaranteed to be on the roster for at least one more season.
Davis finished with 31 points, marking the sixth straight game he’s scored 29 or more since Cousins arrived.
His 17 free throw attempts also tied his second-most on the season, perhaps a sign of increased aggressiveness and mismatches, as well as the ability to play at a peak more often and later in games, with Cousins occupying so much attention.“I do think we’ve kind of got a routine down,” Holiday said.
He was not needed to score as much with the return of Anthony Davis (knee) against the Cavs, but he turned in those less chances scoring into more assists and put up his first double-digit assist total on the season.
Boogie should continue to stay hot Monday night against the Magic as his temper is calm to start the season and he is contributing on defense as well with three steals Saturday night.
