DeMarcus Cousins tosses garbage cans after contentious foul call

Sunday January 22nd, 2017

After being called for a controversial foul toward the end of Saturday’s 102–99 loss to the Bulls, Kings center DeMarcus Cousins was seen by reporters throwing garbage cans out of frustration.

Cousins, who finished with 42 points and 14 rebounds, was trailing Dwyane Wade on a fastbreak and was whistled for a touch foul.

It appeared that Cousins never, in fact, touched Wade, who missed a dunk with under 15 seconds to go.

After the game, he sarcastically applauded referees, saying they did an “incredible job.”

A photo sent out after the game showed coffee cups and food containers spilled on the floor, with coffee coating part of the floor.
