DeMarcus Cousins enjoys career night as Pelicans top Grizzlies

DeMarcus Cousins tied a career-high with five 3-pointers and poured in his most points since joining the Pelicans as New Orleans upset the Grizzlies Tuesday.

Cousins scored 41 points and added 17 rebounds in the 95-82 win while recording blocked three shots. He also assisted on Anthony Davis’ alley-oop dunk and was glad to hear the New Orleans crowd chant his nickname, “Boogie,” during the game.

Davis added 19 points and 13 rebounds for the Pelicans, who won for the Cheap Jerseys And Jordans fifth time in six games as they eye the final playoff spot in the West. New Orleans (30-41) now trails the idle Nuggets by 3 1/2 games for the sought after final playoff spot.

If the Bulls want to plan for the future, they should play young guys like Felicio and Lauvergne to see what they have. After actively shopping Mirotic prior to the trade deadline, let him walk as a restricted free agent this offseason. Tell Dwyane Wade he won’t be playing for a contender, so he should decline that player option (something he’s already considered). Rajon Rondo’s contract becomes fully guaranteed on June 30. Chicago needs to get rid of him before that point. Shop Butler for significant pieces and start fresh.

Here’s the thing: the Bulls (31-35) are only 1.5 games back of the final playoff spot in the East. With 16 games remaining on the schedule, Chicago finishes with a somewhat challenging stretch in March. Look at April, though: vs. Atlanta, at New Orleans, at New York, at Philadelphia, at Brooklyn, vs. Orlando and vs. Brooklyn. If Hoiberg’s squad is even within shouting distance, there’s a good chance the Bulls can capture the seventh or eighth seed. Heck, they are only three games behind the Pacers Cheap Jerseys And Sunglasses for Cheap Goalie Jerseys Soccer the sixth seed. (The bottom of the East is a race to .500.)

Metallica tour will force Cardinals to move training camp practices

New offseason, same disruptions for the Cardinals.

Country music star Luke Bryan will sing the national anthem at Super Bowl 51, his first time performing on the Super Bowl stage.

In Mobile, the Browns gave Dobbs more snaps than the other two quarterbacks (Webb and Colorado’s Sefo Liufau) combined. Were they tipping their hand as far as which Day 3 passer they’ll be targeting?

The Dalvin Cook vs. Leonard Fournette debate might have more to do with Cook’s previous injury concerns and how teams project that to be an issue compared to Fournette’s inconsistencies despite awesome upside. Texas’ D’Onta Foreman is a favorite of mine and will be in first-round consideration. I like South Florida’s Marlon Mack as a Tevin Coleman-type runner in Round 2.

Like Barkley, this was Allen Iverson’s only MVP season and Finals appearance. He led the league in minutes played, scoring, steals and (not surprisingly) usage percentage, while netting a career-high 11.8 win shares. Shaq notched one of his 11 seasons leading the NBA in field goal percentage, also pacing the league in player efficiency rating (30.2) and win shares (14.9).
