DeMarcus Cousins Buzzer Beater Gives Kings the Win Over the Suns (Video)
Last night’s DeMarcus Cousins buzzer beater in the King’s win over Phoenix was a recent high point in what has otherwise been a disappointing season for the Kings. After getting off to a promising start, the team has completely failed to gel, despite Cousins’ All-Star caliber performance this year.
But we’ll ignore their troubles for now and focus on the positive. Tied at 83 (low-scoring game), the Kings had to inbound the ball with 2.5 seconds left in regulation. DeMarcus Cousins, a little far from home, got the ball near the top of the key, and after a couple jukes and fakes, put up a shot at the buzzer. What’s most remarkable about the DeMarcus Cousins buzzer beater is that it took several bounces on the rim before falling through the hoop.
You know what? Let’s just watch the video:
Nothing like the added drama of the ball taking its sweet time to fall, eh?
