The Pelicans made a blockbuster trade acquiring All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins from the Kings for what amounts to peanuts. New Orleans had hoped to make a playoff run but so far the team is just 1-3 since the trade. The one win happened last night without Cousins in the lineup, he was suspended for an 18th technical.

Houston likes to shoot the three and they are good at. The Rockets have extended their NBA record to nine games with 20 or more 3’s. The Warriors were the previous record holder with seven games of 20 or more three pointers in 2015-16.
