Boogie Cousins’ Technical Foul made Steve Kerr Lose a Bet

Demarcus Cousins is no stranger to technical fouls. That’s partly what makes him such a loveable player, oddly enough, and of course, he’s a former cat. But his latest technical foul may have cost Golden State head coach Steve Kerr.

In just his third active game this season, Cousins picked up his 119th career technical foul when he pushed Washington Center Thomas Bryant after they got tangled up in the first half.

Kerr appeared on a local San Fransico radio station and jokingly stated he thought the first technical would come sooner than it did: “Yeah, I lost a bet. I had Game 2 as his first technical. But it took three games.”

Cousins has already been ejected this season while sitting on the bench injured for arguing with an official in October.

Despite the technical, Cousins went for 17 points, six rebounds, and three assists. In three games since returning from a torn Achilles last season, the 28-year-old veteran is averaging 13.0 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 3.7 assists.

Golden State is undefeated with Cousins in the lineup, and the Warriors are in the midst of a nine-game winning streak as they lead the Western Conference with a record of 34-14.

    Optional fact: Boogie not getting a technical through his first 2 games is what cost Kerr the bet. 😉

      The “optional fact” (which was in the article) was that Kerr had his money on boogie getting a tech in game 2.

      The bet was lost when there was no technical in game 2, not when he got one in game 3.

    Check Boogies +/- during his 3 games.
