After coming back from injury and manhandling the Bulls in a 99-70 victory Monday night, Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins called Bulls forward Mike Dunleavy a “clown.”
This wasn’t just some random trash-talking. The two have history.
Last season, after being undercut by Dunleavy (who was then with the Bucks), Cousins retaliated with an elbow and was ejected.
