Cousins is the first player to post a 40-20-10 since Wilt Chamberlain did it in March of 1968, and is just the 10th such time that has happened in NBA history.
Boogie finished the game going 13-29 from the field, 5-11 behind the arc, and 13-14 at the line. He also had four steals, one block and even did enough to earn praise from LeBron James, amongst others, on Twitter
