3 Keys for Dallas Mavericks Versus Boogie and the Sacramento Kings
Make It Tough For Demarcus Cousins
The Sacramento Kings aren’t a spectacular team, but they do have one of the most dominant players in the NBA. Demarcus Cousins is a highly skilled big man who can do just about anything a center should, plus some extra. Add in his size and athleticism, and Boogie is a force to be reckoned with. Coach Rick Carlisle had some flattering words for the Sacramento center.
And now after Andrew Bogut went down, Dallas will be in a tough way. Salah Mejri and Dwight Powell will have their hands full, and the rest of the team will need to be ready and eager to assist in defending the Kings all-star.
For the Mavericks tonight, their main goal should be to simply slow Cousins down. He will make his mark on the game regardless, however if Dallas can take away the easy buckets and make him earn every last point and rebound then we should be alright.
