Fresh off a tremendous victory over the Golden State Warriors, the Kings came out flat against the Chicago Bulls and trailed by as many as 27. So a two-tech night like Monday will cause an ejection from that game, and he'll sit out the next one. Chicago's Taj Gibson thought he was fouled on a layup attempt and appeared to say something. He earned one for a skirmish with Chicago guard Rajon Rondo, a former teammate, that ended with Cousins shoving Bulls assistant coach Jim Boylen.
Barnes also left the locker room without speaking to the media. Last night, we got the bad version of Cousins.
Cousins's first technical of the night wasn't much smarter. The Kings have trailed by at least 20 points in 13 games this season are are 1-12 in those games. "And when we started playing with a lot more pace things started to click for us".
As the games pass by and Cousins' contract comes closer and closer to expiration at the end of the 2017-2018 season, are the Kings prepared to offer the big (estimated) $219 maximum extension Cousins will likely demand before free agency?
Louvre attack: Egyptian man, 29, believed to be assailant
French police secure the site near the Louvre Pyramid in Paris after a French soldier shot and wounded a man armed with a knife. According to Cadot, remarks made by the suspect led security forces to believe he wanted to carry out a terrorist attack.
Paul Stastny also scored for St. Louis, which won for the second time in three games after coach Mike Yeo replaced Ken Hitchcock on February 1, following a 1-5-0 stretch. Then he stole the inbounds pass following a timeout and went the length of the court for a dunk to make it a four-point lead. The Kings' furious comeback wasn't aided much by DeMarcus Cousins, who managed 18 points on 16 shots to go along with two freakish technical fouls.
The Celtics are now in the midst of a seven-game winning streak and will also face Portland (Thursday), Utah (Saturday) and Dallas (Monday) on the trip.
They gave up six triples in the fourth quarter after allowing just five in the first three quarters, as Lawson scored 22 off the bench and Barnes 19.
Cousins, who was ejected with one second half as he could no longer keep it together, finished with 18 points, 14 rebounds and five assists but only made five of 16 shots from the field. The Bulls' starters scored 95 of their 112 points, with each starter in double figures.
