Video: DeMarcus Cousins, E’Twaun Moore, Anthony Davis’ fastbreak only needed one dribble
Despite their recent skid, the New Orleans Pelicans have done a nice job elevating their play during their recent three-game win streak. Throughout the entire 2017-18 NBA season, the Pelicans have seemingly struggled to get on the same page.
However, they found themselves perfectly in sync on Saturday night with this magnificent play from superstar big men DeMarcus Cousins, Anthony Davis, and guard E’Twaun Moore versus the New York Knicks.

Needless to say, Cousins shows why he is one of the most skilled big men in the game. Not only was he able to corral the airball between his legs, but he also had the presence of mind to kickstart the fastbreak with a deep outlet pass to Moore. At that point, all Moore had to do was get it into the vicinity of Davis.
Unfortunately, the Pelicans’ highlight was spoiled after ultimately losing a 105-103 heartbreaker to the Knicks. However, both New Orleans’ big men continue to prove why they are the most dominant frontcourt in the league.
DeMarcus Cousins finished the game with 29 points and was a monster on the boards with 19 rebounds while Anthony Davis led all scorers with 31 points to go with nine rebounds and five blocks. That said, New Orleans still has yet to find a way to translate their dynamic performances into wins.
