DeMarcus Cousins recorded his second consecutive triple double on Friday night.

The Sacramento Kings star scored 24 points, grabbed 20 rebounds, dished out a career-high 13 assists and blocked four shots in a 101-95 loss to the New Orleans Pelicans at Sleep Train Arena.

Cousins converted nine of his 22 field-goal attempts and knocked down six of his 10 tries from the free throw line. The chart embedded below displays his shot distribution.


According to ESPN Stats & Info, Cousins is the first player since Larry Bird in 1985 to register consecutive games with at least 20 points, 15 rebounds and 10 assists.

Cousins, 24, has averaged 24.1 points, 12.5 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 1.7 blocks in 2014-15 while earning his first All-Star nod.

Sacramento has now dropped four consecutive games to fall to 26-49. The Kings, who have seven games remaining this season, host the Utah Jazz on Sunday.
