DeMarcus Cousins suspended for punch and fined $20,000

By Royce Young | NBA writer

DeMarcus Cousins has been suspended one game for throwing a punch, and then fined $20,000 for verbal abuse of an official and failing to leave the court in a timely manner after being ejected.

Cousins will miss the Kings' game Friday against the Lakers.

Cousins threw a punch at Houston's Patrick Beverley about three minutes into the game -- video here -- and then picked up consecutive technical fouls after disputing a call in the third quarter against the Rockets.

Cousins apologized on Twitter after the game:

The two technicals give Cousins 15 on the season, meaning his next will earns him a one-game suspension. Cousins led the league last season with 17 technicals.
