Sacramento
New Orleans

[NEW ORLEANS] — The New Orleans Pelicans played host to the Sacramento Kings last night but didn't exactly treat their visitors with any semblence of dignity or respect. Not only did the Pellies manhandle their beleagured opponents, they embarassed them to the tune of 117-89. The win bumps New Orleans's record up to 33-43 on the season, while the loss drags Sacramento's down to 29-47. More than just a victory, the performance could serve as a boost for the Pelicans. Having scored early and often against their opponents this time out, the club will look to capitalize on their momentum heading into their next contest.

An impressive performance from DeMarcus Cousins led all players in the contest and his 37 points, 13 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 blocks and 3 steals in 35 minutes will make many-a-fantasy owner proud. Ask anybody, however - Cousins included - and the most important part is that the Pelicans walked away with the W. Each win adds up over the course of the season with the end goal being far more satisfying than a Tweetable stat line.

Joining Cousins in the winning effort was Anthony Davis. Had it not been for Davis rounding out the Pellies's attack with 19 points, 12 rebounds and 3 assists of his own, we may have been looking at a different outcome.

Beyond any individual contributions, one of the major reasons why it was the Pelicans walking away victorious was New Orleans's ability to limit Sacramento's offensive output. By holding the Kings to less than they usually produce the Pelicans made their life considerably easier.

Up next for the reeling Pellies will be a date with the Chicago Bulls while the visiting Kings will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Minnesota Timberwolves.
