Confrontational style costs DeMarcus Cousins again

Overshadowed by the Lakers developments the past week was the two-game suspension served by Sacramento forward DeMarcus Cousins for confronting Spurs television analyst Sean Elliott following San Antonio’s 97-86 win over the Kings Nov. 9.

Elliott, a Spurs all-time great who overcame a kidney transplant to continue his NBA career, criticized Cousins for trash talking with San Antonio star (and former Elliott teammate) Tim Duncan. Duncan finished with 23 points and 12 rebounds while Cousins scored 14 points on 4-for-14 shooting with 9 rebounds.
