DeMarcus Cousins gets technical after going full MMA on a chair
During the game between the Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings on Sunday night, DeMarcus Cousins got into foul trouble early in the match as he got whistled for his third personal foul with still 4:14 left in the second quarter.
Known for his short temper and outbursts on the court, the 26-year-old Kentucky product was visibly upset while making his way to the bench. He was then called for a technical foul after he took out his frustrations on a chair by kicking and punching it multiple times.

After leading by seven points halftime, things went downhill for the Kings in the second half as they saw their lead erased by the Warriors and eventually losing the game 117-106.
Cousins had one of his worse performances this season by only scoring 17 points, on 4-11 shooting, and adding 10 rebounds, two steals and two blocks while committing seven turnovers in the game.
The loss extended the Kings losing streak to three games and they will look to snap it on Tuesday when they host the Detroit Pistons. However, it is also worth monitoring if the league will issue any sanction to Cousins for his behavior after getting slapped with his 12th technical foul for the season.
