Cousins was also suspended one game for punching Patrick Beverley in the game.

Quote:
acramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins has a bit of a reputation as a volatile personality, and his recent antics in Tuesday's game against the Houston Rockets have cost him a one-game suspension and a $20,000 fine.

Ben Golliver of Sports Illustrated reports on Thursday that the suspension came to Cousins because he threw a punch at Rockets point guard Patrick Beverley in the first quarter.

The punch to Beverley's stomach may have been retaliation for when Cousins injured his ankle and Beverley stood over him in a game between the two teams earlier this season, per The Sacramento Bee's Jason Jones
