The Sacramento Kings were without DeMarcus Cousins last night as they took on the Milwaukee Bucks. Cousins served his one-game suspension last night, a punishment for striking O.J. Mayo in the groin on Monday night.
According to ESPN Dallas' Tim Macmahon, Cousins claimed the hit was unintentional, but it was clear that Cousins had made a fist and punched backwards at Mayo below the belt. Mayo confronted Cousins after the punch resulting in double technicals, but the bigger penalty was Cousins' suspension.
With Cousins on the bench, the Kings fell to the Bucks 98-85. The Kings have had a rough season so far this year. They are 7-14, but they are 1-8 on the road. Their home record of 6-6 is somewhat respectable, but they lose it all when the team hits the road.
Cousins is averaging 17.2 points per game and 9.9 rebounds per game. The former Kentucky Wildcat is in his third year in the NBA. He was fifth overall pick in the 2010 draft after averaging 15.1 points per game an 9.8 rebounds per game in college.
