The old DeMarcus Cousins reared its ugly head today in Sacramento’s blowout loss to the Boston Celtics. Cousins was ejected in the fourth quarter for throwing Marcus Smart to the ground, his second technical foul of the game. Boogie’s been struggling to come back after viral meningitis, and today, it looks like his temper got the best of him. With 7:31 remaining in the fourth quarter and the Celtics leading Sacramento 90-69, Smart attempted to box out Cousins. The 6’11”, 270-pound center apparently took exception to being bumped, so he threw the 6’4″, 220-pound guard down hard.
Cousins reportedly apologized to his teammates for his actions after the game and said he has to get himself together for the team to win.
