Kings: Cousins had season-high 11 assists against Cavs

DeMarcus Cousins entered Friday’s game averaging less than four assists a game, but had a season-high 11. It was one positive coach Dave Joerger found in the 120-108 loss. “If we can move around him and yet still not get in his way and make ourselves effective cutters, it’ll make him even more effective,” Joerger says.
