James Young, Boston Celtics: 5 points, 6 rebounds, 1 block, 17 minutesNo highlights of James, but he did some good things last night, blocking a shot, getting an offensive rebound, and making an impact on defense. Young's on thin ice in Boston, so he has to give the Celtics a reason to keep him on the roster. Last night was a good start.
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Charlotte Hornets: 7 points, 4 rebounds, 24 minutesMKG continues to ease back into things after missing most of last season due to injury and I was genuinely happy to see him score off this steal and dish from Marvin Williams.

Andrew Harrison, Memphis Grizzlies: 2 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist, 17 minutesNo footage of Andrew in the game, but here he is knocking a three down in warm-ups:
DeMarcus Cousins, Sacramento Kings: 20 points, 6 rebounds, 4 steals, 21 minutesBoogie did Boogie things last night, but couldn't get the Kings past the Warriors. https://t.co/FlJ3dexUgQ As he was leaving the arena, Boogie paused to watch Kevin Durant do an interview in his Warriors uniform, and like many of us, still can't believe it: https://www.instagram.com/p/BLQCQL0l4Ep/
Skal Labissiere, Sacramento Kings: 0 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist, 11 minutesNo points for Skal in the game, but that turnaround jumper sure looked good in warmups: https://vine.co/v/5ghdUrvFvMw
Willie Cauley-Stein, Sacramento Kings: 2 points, 2 rebounds, 2 steals, 20 minutesWillie played okay, but I'm still not over his hair from earlier in the week: [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="1200"] @Scott_Charlton[/caption] Alex Poythress, Aaron Harrison, John Wall (knee), and Nerlens Noel (groin) did not play.
