DeMarcus Cousins Ejected After Elbowing Mike Dunleavy Jr. in the Head (VIDEO)
DMC gets tossed.
The combustible Boogie Cousins was tossed out of a game last night—his NBA-leading fourth ejection so far this season—when he delivered an elbow to Mike Dunleavy Jr.’s dome. The Sacramento Kings then went on to lose 115-113 to the visiting Milwaukee Bucks. Per the Sac Bee: “Cousins was dominating the Bucks, who were without injured big men Larry Sanders and Ersan Ilyasova, with 24 points and 10 rebounds. But then he headed to the locker room and left the arena without commenting. [...] Kings coach Keith Smart said Cousins could have scored 40 points if not for his ejection. ‘Who knows what happens up there,’ Smart said when asked about Cousins’ temperament. ‘I wish I could understand it and how it works, but unfortunately I’m not that kind of guy.’ Dunleavy said after the game that Cousins only hurt his team with his actions. ‘I’m not even going to begin to reason with someone like that,’ Dunleavy said. ‘I don’t know where to begin. I don’t even know what happened the first time around. I thought I was just trying to box him out, a bunch of bodies fell and collapsed, and there was a timeout. Next thing you know, he starts barking at me. We try to run a play, and he elbows me in the head. I don’t know.’ More Dunleavy: ‘He came up and confronted me about whatever. He’s just always talking, always running his mouth, you know? He should leave people alone.’ And still more from Dunleavy: ‘He came up to me and got in my face about stuff. And we’re here to play basketball, and this guy’s got other stuff going on, obviously.’”
