DeMarcus Cousins dominated the Nuggets on Wednesday to the tune of 40 points and 22 rebounds, as the Pelicans outlasted Denver, 123-114 at home. "You kind of get locked in and you know when you're rolling, of course, but it's still all about making the right play because eventually they adjust".

Denver Nuggets head coach Mike Malone won't be treating his team to dinner after Wednesday's sorry showing.

"Until our guys start taking it personal, until our guys start understanding the importance of playing defense and guarding your man 1-on-1, forget playoffs", Malone continued. "That is a word we should not use for this team". They also recorded a season-high 37 assists, and their starting five combined for 101 points.

By the end of the third quarter, the Pelicans inched ahead again as Cousins started to pick up steam.
