Phoenix Sun Split Their Weekend Series with Detroit Pistons and Sacramento Kings
Vince Carter: Now 1-2 as a Sun after a loss to the Kings
A rookie on the NBA's worst team had the best game of his young career on Sunday night as the Sacramento Kings dumped the Phoenix Suns 94-89 in Sacramento. DaMarcus Cousins, who was the fifth overall draft pick in 2010 NBA Draft, finally showed the league what he is capable of with a 28-point, six-assist night against the listless Suns.
And last Wednesday, they were knocked off at home by another sub.-.500 team, the Philadelphia 76ers, who beat the Suns 123-110 in what was the debut of former stud Vince Carter, who was recently acquired in a trade on December 18 for Jason Richardson and Hedo Turkoglu. Carter scored 18 points on less-than-stellar 8-for-20 shooting.
