DeMarcus Cousins joins elite company after historic triple-double

NPL Sports, 23rd Jan: DeMarcus Cousins delivers a full-court assist during his historic performance on Monday night.

DeMarcus Cousins’ dominance on the court is unquestioned. It’s a big reason why he was voted in as a starter for the 2018 NBA All-Star game.

On Monday night, the Pelicans big man took that trait to an entirely new level. In a double-overtime victory over Chicago, Cousins amassed 44 points, 24 rebounds and 10 assists in 52 minutes of play. The triple-double not only propelled New Orleans to the win, it also planted Cousins firmly on an extremely short list of NBA legends.

The last player to produce at least 40 points, 20 rebounds and 10 assists in a game was Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in 1972. The others: Wilt Chamberlain (six times), Oscar Robertson and Elgin Baylor. All four of those players are in the basketball Hall of Fame.
