DeMarcus Cousins Facing Suspension For Shoving Bulls Assistant Coach

DeMarcus Cousins Facing Suspension For Shoving Bulls Assistant Coach

Demarcus Cousins dropped 42 points and 14 rebounds the last time these two teams met.

Perhaps ignited by a skirmish at the end of the quarter involving Gibson, Rajon Rondo and associate coach Jim Boylen with Cousins and Matt Barnes where it looked like Cousins shoved Boylen, they found new life and had the Bulls seeing double.

Michael Carter-Williams had 21 points for the Bulls, and Robin Lopez scored 17.

Barnes, the noted off-court nemesis of ex-Knicks coach Derek Fisher who was charged with assault last week in Manhattan, picked up a technical foul, as did Cousins. While the Kings did well to get back into this game, he finished with an inefficient 18 points on 16 attempts and allowed the Bulls to pull back in front after that missed free throw in the final minute.

The NBA will review the two technical fouls in the coming days to determine if they should be upheld or withdrawn.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Kyrie Irving scored 11 of his 23 points in overtime, including a tiebreaking 3-pointer with 35 seconds left, and the Cleveland Cavaliers edged the Washington Wizards 140-135 in a playoff-type atmosphere Monday night. It was his 16th of the season (it's only February!), thus, per National Basketball Association rules, the All-Star will be suspended for the Kings' next game vs. Boston unless one of the two is rescinded.

Ty Lawson led the Kings with 22 points.

Wade's scoring average of 19.1 points per game, good for second on the Bulls to Butler's 24.6 ppg, which is a far cry from his hey-day in Miami when he was pouring in north of 25 points every night. He will be evaluated Tuesday and is questionable for the Wednesday game at Golden State.

Ironically, Cousin's latest antics came after Kings general manager Vlade Divac vowed the franchise would not trade its star player. The three-time All-Star continues to put up massive numbers as the alpha and omega of the Kings attack, but his inability to check his emotions and volatile relationships with the NBA's referees continue to get him into trouble. The second occured at the very end of the game, when Cousins was upset about a non-call.
