En route to earning their sixth straight win, the veteran San Antonio Spurs impressed the young up-start Sacramento Kings, according to The Sacramento Bee.
“(Expletive) you’re good,” 21-year old Kings center DeMarcus Cousins recalled telling legendary Spurs big man Tim Duncan.
Kings guard Isaiah Thomas was also impressed by the Spurs veteran savvy.
“Every little mistake, they capitalized on it,” said Thomas. “We played good D for about 19, 20 seconds and then that little mistake we had, whatever it might have been, they just do what championship teams do – they found a little hole and they went through it.”
Duncan finished the game with 18 points and eight rebounds. Cousins contributed 25 points and 11 rebounds on the night.
