DeMarcus Cousins out for the season after tearing his Achilles

DeMarcus Cousins out for the season after tearing his Achilles

According to oddsmakers at, Houston is favored on the road in this game, as the Rockets are getting odds of -4 points against the Pelicans. Let's hope it's just a strain and not something serious.

The Pelicans played good basketball last night as #The Rockets did not have an answer for Anthony Davis. He attempted to rebound his missed shot but landed hard on his left foot.

The timing is also brutal for Cousins, as he's in a contract year. The injury appeared to be non-contact related.

If those trends hold, the Pelicans are likely to spend the rest of the season in a predictable two-stage rhythm: looking competitive and perhaps even fearsome when Davis is on the court and then descending into a tire fire during his 12 or so minutes of rest.

"Obviously, he's extremely important to us, so yeah, we're scared about it".

This just sucks, Cousins - already arguably the best big man in the game - was having the best season of his career. That's the tough part.

"We just have to keep going, that's all we can do", Davis said. He was going to get a massive contract, likely to remain with the Pelicans.

Cousins is a free agent this summer, and he has an awesome season with 25.4 points, 12.9 rebounds, 5.2 assists and 1.6 blocks per game.

Cousins recorded a triple-double of 15 points, 13 rebounds, and 11 assists before his team mates assisted him out of the court.

Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said Cousins would undergo an MRI Friday night. Everything he's done and what he's tried to do for us and the improvements he's made as a player, on and off the court, has just been great. "I'm sure guys are ready for the challenge". Houston averages 114.1 points per game on the year while allowing 106.3 on defense.

But, the Rockets wouldn't go away. After a Harden miss, Cousins' basket gave New Orleans a 113-109 lead with 15 seconds left.

Seven wins in the last eight games. His scoring flurry of 10 points in the final 2:14 of the third quarter got the Rockets within striking distance after the Pelicans' lead had swelled as large as 21 points.

Lakers 108, Bulls 103: Brandon Ingram scored 25 points, including eight in the final 3:18, as visiting Los Angeles rallied after losing a 12-point, fourth-quarter lead.
