Cousins is no stranger to technical fouls. Despite only playing 14 games in 2018-19, he has already received six. He was even ejected after getting a technical foul from the bench earlier this season while he has recovering from an Achilles injury.
While Cousins wasn’t happy with the technical, he did record a season-high 24 points on 9-of-15 shooting. He is averaging 14.1 points and 7.6 rebounds per game in 2018-19.
Cousins signed a one-year, $5.3 million deal with the Warriors in free agency this summer.
Golden State sits atop the Western Conference standings with a 43-17 record. It will face the Heat on Wednesday.
