Technicals Becoming an Issue for Cousins
DeMarcus Cousins said he expects the worst to happen in every game.
Not that he expects the Sacramento Kings to lose every game, but he doesn’t expect to get the benefit of the doubt on close calls from officials.
The worst didn’t happen Monday night. But for a few minutes, Cousins had reason to be wary during the Kings’ 124-118 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers at Sleep Train Arena.
With 7:50 left in the quarter, Cousins was called for his ninth technical foul of the season. Cousins is tied with Los Angeles Clippers forward Matt Barnes for the most technicals in the NBA.
“I basically expect the worst every game, to be honest,” Cousins said. “You never know what’s going to happen.”
Cousins was called for a flagrant foul 1 with 6:24 left in the quarter. He was behind Cleveland center Tyler Zeller and tried to block his shot and caught Zeller across the face.
