DeMarcus Cousins name has came up here and there about trades, as he looks to avoid those distractions as the Kings and hornets meet in Sacramento on Monday.
Cousins was undoubtedly the best player in January and he looks to build off that and help the Kings who are back in a playoff spot currently.
Charlotte is trying to keep pace as well themselves as they’ve ran off 2 straight wins and have gotten to just 2 games under the .500 mark.
Charlotte has won 2 straight and 3 of 4 overall and have Kemba Walker to certainly thank for their recent success.
The Hornets G has averaged 34.8 points during the run and he’s also put up some breathtaking performances. Walker had performances of 52 and 40 points as he’s now averaging 20.5 points per game.
The success of Walker has come at the best time with both Al Jefferson and Cody Zeller battling injuries. Also adding to that list is now Nicolas Batum (toe) and Jeremy Lamb (toe).
Walker has also picked up the minutes slack too, playing 42 minutes or more in 3 of the Hornets past 4 games.
Back on Nov. 23, the Hornets erased a 22 point deficit to defeat the Kings 127-122.
The Kings have been one of the best teams recently in the NBA, thanks to a hot player of their own in DeMarcus Cousins.
Sacramento has won 5 straight games and find themselves back in the playoff picture thanks to Cousins and his scoring and rebounding abilities. Cousins has put up double-doubles in 10 straight games and is coming off his best performance of the month.
Cousins had 48 points in the win over Indiana and has averaged 32.5 points to go along with 13.7 rebounds in the month of January.
He may need similar stats as SF Rudy Gay continues to battle a heel injury. He’s missed the last 2 games and is likely OUT for this one as well.

DeMarcus Cousins is playing at unreal levels and the Hornets don’t have much inside presence to slow him down.
