Postgame notes: Cousins plays through the pain

PHOENIX - Some postgame quick hits from the Kings' 113-106 win over Phoenix:

*DeMarcus Cousins said his shoulder was hurting during the game but he was able to manage it. He played with a brace on it.

*Kings coach Michael Malone said the shoulder might have impacted Cousins' shooting (4 of 14) but he also credited the Suns with playing good defense.

*Isaiah Thomas has scored in double figures every game this season. He's the only King to do that.

*Cousins had 19 points and 12 rebounds, his first double-double this season that wasn't a 20-10 effort.

*Luc Mbah a Moute is quickly becoming a favorite of Malone. Mbah a Moute helped limit Gerald Green to three points in the second half after he scored 20 in the first half.

*One reason Malone might not feel good? The Kings gave up 44 points in the fourth quarter. His goal is to hold teams to 20 or fewer in the fourth. On the bright side, just before allowing that season high, the Kings held the Suns to 12 in the third, a season low. This was also the first road win of the season.
