The Sacramento Kings obliterated the Chicago Bulls on Monday night, but the blowout wasn’t without interest.

In addition to Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah going absolutely nuts on referees who ejected him, teammate Mike Dunleavy found himself yet again in trouble with DeMarcus Cousins.

The Sacramento Kings big man has tangled with Dunleavy before  – Cousins believing the former Duke star attempted to take his leg out on a rebound. The bad blood continued last night as the two were seen pushing and shoving, leading Cousins to call Dunleavy a ‘clown’ after the game.

Dunleavy pushed Cousins as he ran down the court at one point, and Dunleavy also complained on a foul that Cousins tried to injure him.

“He’s a clown,” Cousins said of Dunleavy. “And he’s scary. I wouldn’t waste my time if I ever saw him outside of the gym.”

Sounds like both players are a bit over dramatic, though, it was Cousins who won the quote game – at least for a night.

The two will have a re-match (assuming Dunleavy isn’t traded) on March 15th in Chicago.
