Cousins was whistled for his third foul at the 3:09 mark in the second quarter. After heading to the bench, he kicked the chair and then yelled at Memphis Grizzlies forward Tony Allen, who walked over to the end of the bench where Cousins sat down. A second-half surge carried the Kings to a 102-90 victory over the Grizzlies.
At the time, Cousins had four points and the Kings were leading 51-41. Cousins finished with 16 points on 6-of-13 shooting in 24 minutes. He made his first career All-Star Game appearance this season.
