DeMarcus Cousins showed off his deceptively-ill handles Thursday night, blowing past Timofey Mozgov with a deft crossover on his way to the hoop for an and-1.

(Big Moz and the Lakers won the game, however.)

Boogie downplayed the postgame staredown he had with Lakers forward Julius Randle.

Per the Sac Bee:

The Kings shot 29 percent in the second half and blew an early 19-point lead in a 101-91 loss to the Lakers at the Golden 1 Center. They had a two-game winning streak snapped before quickly turning around to playing at Portland on Friday night.

 

The Lakers, meanwhile, shot 54.1 percent in the second half, sealing the game by making 10-of-16 shots in the fourth quarter. Cousins returned with 10 points in the fourth, finishing with 28 to lead all scorers, but the rest of the Kings combined to go 2-for-15 from the field.

 

Frustration with the loss and repeated contact from the Lakers seemed to come to a head late as Cousins and Randle got locked up near the Lakers’ bench. But Cousins brushed it off as “just some friendly UK love” with his fellow Kentucky Wildcat.
