The Robin Lopez-DeMarcus Cousin battle was historic


Knicks fans may have left Madison Square Garden in a foul mood following the team's 88-80 loss to the Kings. But they did see something rare: It was the first NBA game in 20 years in which opposing players each had at least 20 points and 20 rebounds. The players were DeMarcus Cousins (his second such game this season) and Robin Lopez (the first of his career). The last opposing players to do so were David Robinson of the Spurs and Michael Cage of the Cavaliers in January 1996.
