Watch: DeMarcus Cousins, Terry Rozier get technical fouls for incident
DeMarcus Cousins and Terry Rozier received technical fouls for their roles in a fourth quarter incident during the Golden State Warriors-Boston Celtics game on Tuesday night.
Cousins was trying to work on Aron Baynes in the low post and got upset when he was called for an offensive foul. He then yelled at Baynes for flopping, prompting some words of defense from Jayson Tatum. Cousins shoved Tatum in response, and Rozier shoved Cousins back in defense of his teammate.

Cousins was having a rough night offensively, was targeted by the Celtics on defense, and his team was getting blown out. His frustration was understandable, though misplaced. Cousins is 270 pounds; he can’t be too shocked when an opponent hits the floor after Cousins moves into him with all his strength.
