DeMarcus Cousins had 25 points and nine rebounds but the Kings were crushed in New York on Saturday, and after the game “Cousins [said] he’s sacrificing his game by going along with [Keith] Smart’s plan.”
“I can’t keep blaming it on myself,” he said after the game. Seriously. He was also seething at the referees all night and narrowly avoided his 11th technical foul of the season. His fuse is lit and the next blow-up could come at any time, especially after he was benched in the fourth quarter on Monday and criticized by Smart this weekend for not running the court hard enough. All fantasy owners can do is sit back and watch the fireworks.
