With back-to-back underwhelming performances following that Game 2 breakout, we’re rolling with DeMarcus Cousins off the bargain rack as our Game 5 Captain. The only game we’ve backed Cousins during the NBA Finals happened to be that game-changing 37 DKFP night in Game 2, and we’re ready to go back to the well with Boogie on Monday night. He’s played 19 and 15 minutes in his last two games but with their backs against the wall tonight in Toronto, wouldn’t be surprised to see Cousins eclipse 20 minutes of time on the floor tonight. He’s a capable scorer, rebounder and distributor but has been completely neutralized by Marc Gasol and company the last two games. The Dubs are in desperate need for DeMarcus Cousins to be DeMarcus Cousins tonight (especially if Kevin Durant ends up being a no-go) and with a $2,000 price cut from Game 4 to Game 5, making Cousins our high-risk, high-reward Captain allows us to stack the upper half of our lineup.
