Last night in New Orleans, DeMarcus Cousins joined Wilt Chamberlain in slim company. He became the first player to put up 40-20-10 in 50 years. He finished the game (although it ended in double overtime) with 44 points, 24 rebounds, 10 assists, 4 steals, and 1 block. He did play 52 minutes but this is still a monster stat line. AD also dropped 34 and it really is a wonder how the Pelicans can only manage to be a few games over .500.
Some of the players took to Twitter to congratulate Boogie on the Wilt stat-line.
(Shocker he would comment on anything that happened in the NBA that’s not revolving around himself)
It’s been about 5 days now since what may go down as the best NFL playoff finish ever. The Minnesota Vikings, led by long-time backup Case Keenum, were able to shock the Saints after a back-and-forth 2 minutes which both teams kicked go-ahead FGs. If that wasn’t enough to believe, take a look at the win probability chart:
And well the rest is history…
Even Case Keenum can’t believe what Case Keenum did. I wanted to let this sit for awhile to not give it the early reaction of being the best finish ever. Obviously the Music City Miracle was the first thing to come to mind. It’s still an early reaction but this is a no-brainer for me. This is the best finish ever. How could you not like this — unless you’re a Saints fan of course.
Odin.Thor. Keenum. All Vikings legends.
The tackle attempt by Marcus Williams was of course an awful approach but he’s 20 years old and made a key interception in the game — the kid will bounce back. This season has been a great storyline for the Vikings and Case Keenum, who may not even be on the team next year with Bridgewater & Bradford both coming back. The Vikings of course are not able to ride homefield advantage all the way to the Super Bowl as the Eagles won their game.
PS — Reaction videos will never get old
The Saints took care of business yesterday scraping out a 31-26 victory over the Carolina Panthers. The headline today?
Ruthless. Jerry Richardson was putting the team up for sale, which actually became official after the game — per Adam Schefter.
Love the banter from New Orleans here. The Panthers were very close to pulling off the upset but ultimately failed short with Cam Newton getting sacked on 4th down. The Saints move onto the next round and the 2017 Panthers season ends with 6 lossses — half of those to the Saints. That’s gotta hurt, especially watching the Saints celebrate like they won the damn Super Bowl after.
