Kings' DeMarcus Cousins On Clippers' Blake Griffin Flopping: 'He's An Actor'

DeMarcus Cousins and Blake Griffin are two of the biggest young stars in the NBA, but apparently they haven't grown too fond of each other during their first two years in the league. Cousins called Griffin out last night for flopping to earn cheap foul calls, according to the Sacramento Bee.

"I guess the wind from my hand hit him in the eye," Cousins said of his fifth foul, when he swiped at the ball and Griffin got the whistle after grabbing his eye. "I guess he got fouled by the wind."

Cousins played just 18 minutes and 28 seconds of the Kings' 93-85 loss to the L.A. Clippers at Power Balance Pavilion in Sacramento. He had eight points and three rebounds before fouling out late.

While Griffin claimed he was fouled on the play in question, Cousins vehemently disagreed.

"[Griffin is] in L.A. where actors belong," Cousins said. "He's an actor, so of course he would say that."

The plot thickens, as we're treated to a rematch of the two young rivals right away. The Kings play the Clippers again in Los Angeles on Saturday.
