In last night’s Kings/Mavericks game, DeMarcus Cousins was ejected for a flagrant foul on Vince Carter. Cousins was trying to stand back up after losing the ball and on his way up, swung his forearm into Carter’s throat. The official called a flagrant two foul, which led to an automatic ejection. After the game, Cousins insisted he didn’t hit Carter on purpose:
“I swear to God I didn’t try to do that. I’m just tired of being in these situations.”
Otherwise, Cousins had a great game, finishing with 29 points, 9 rebounds, 4 assists and some monster dunks. When asked if he thinks this will lead to a suspension, Boogie said he’s hoping for the best but expecting the worst:
“I’m pretty sure my reputation will come into play … but hopefully they’ll realize it wasn’t intentional.”
Did Cousins hit Carter intentionally? Judge for yourself from the video above.
