SACRAMENTO -- Lost in the Warriors' unreal comeback victory over the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday night was some ill-advised, late-game taunting from Kings rookie center DeMarcus Cousins.
It started when the Warriors' Reggie Williams missed the first of three free throws while trailing 98-93 with 19.3 seconds left. That prompted Cousins to step into the lane, grab his neck and send a "choke" signal Williams' way.
Williams made his second free throw, but missed his third attempt. The Warriors, though, got the rebound and Dorell Wright was sent to the free-throw line after getting fouled.
Wright also missed his first free throw and was reportedly treated to the same choking signs from Cousins.
As karma would have it, it was Cousins' failure to secure a rebound with two seconds left in regulation on an intentionally missed free throw that led to Vladimir Radmanovic's desperation, game-tying 3-pointer at the buzzer.
The Warriors went on to secure a 117-109 overtime victory that ranks as perhaps their most thrilling win of the season.
Cousins, on the other hand, wound up scoring just seven points on 3-for-13 shooting with four costly turnovers and a big bowl of wrong for his post-game meal.
UPDATE: Our friend Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee reports that Cousins has been fined and benched by the Kings for the incident.
