Cousins Picks Up 16th Technical Foul Resulting in Suspension


The Sacramento Kings clinched their first 30-win season in eight years on Wednesday, but in continuing what has been a strange season for the team, the final seconds of the victory were clouded in controversy and tarnished by technical fouls.

Both DeMarcus Cousins and Rajon Rondo received technical fouls for sarcastically clapping at an official’s call in the waning moments of a 120-111 win over the Washington Wizards. For Cousins, it was his 16th technical foul of the season and will automatically garner him a one-game suspension.
