DeMarcus Cousins tallied 32 points on 10-17 shooting and 19 rebounds and Derrick Williams had 31 on 12-16 shooting with five steals as the Kings absolutely destroyed the Mavericks 112-97 on Monday. The Kings were shorthanded, though the new members of the team did watch the game from a suite and make an appearance in the fourth quarter with fans chanting "Rudy!"
Isaiah Thomas was awesome too, with 24 points, 12 assists and two turnovers. The Kings led by 10 at halftime and 19 after three. Dirk Nowitzki played well with 18 points, 7 assists and 6 rebounds. Monta Ellis was also good with 21 points on 9-18 shooting. But the rest of the Mavs weren't so good, and the Dallas defense was atrocious.
And then later on this happened.
The Curse of Johnny Salmons is lifted! The Kings are awesome again!
