Cousins' performance was so dominant that Anthony Davis finished with 34 points, nine rebounds and five assists, and no one even cares.
Cousins had 44 points, 24 rebounds and 10 rebounds to become the first player since Wilt Chamberlain in 1968 to have at least 40 points, 20 rebounds and 10 assists in the same game.
Anthony Davis grew up in Chicago but has only had the opportunity to face the Bulls eight times in his six seasons in the National Basketball Association.

The one-year anniversary of Cousins' unceremonious move to New Orleans on the night of the All-Star game is nearing, and there will be talk about his eventual fate, but things are going a little better for the Pelicans this season. As a team, the Pelicans shot 50 percent from the field and seven of 27 form the three-point line but they really had to work for it despite leading by as many as 21 points late in the second quarter.
Cousins made two free throws to put the Pelicans up by one point with just under two minutes left, and Markkanen made one of two free throws to tie the game up with 31.7 seconds left. Without Davis, the Pelicans were able to rely on Cousins, and he won them the game. E-Twaun Moore scored 15 points, Jrue Holiday added 12 and Darius Miller came off the bench to score 10.
