UPDATE: DeMarcus Cousins has been assessed a technical foul for his postgame shove of Devin Booker, the league announced. There is no fine or suspension, which is the right call but with the league and Cousins one never knows where they will land.

—————————————

DeMarcus Cousins was frustrated, as were the rest of the Clippers. They had come back and taken the lead in the final minute of Game 2 on Tuesday night, only to blow the opportunity on Paul George‘s missed free throws and a game-winning dunk by Deandre Ayton.

After Atyons’ dunk, the clock went to 0.0 (the referees later added time), the Suns were celebrating, and in the middle of it all Cousins shoved Devin Booker.

That’s going to be at least a fine from the league for Cousins. Because it appeared to be unprovoked, and Cousins has a history of fines with the league, the idea that he could be suspended for Game 3 is not out of the question.

The Clippers come home for Game 3 of the series on Thursday, down 0-2 and with the Suns potentially getting Chris Paul back from COVID health and safety protocols.
