League rescinds 13th technical on Cousins, who plays Tuesday

A couple days ago we told you that unless Sacramento’s DeMarcus Cousins got his 13th technical and unless the league rescinded it he would be sitting out Tuesday night.

After review, the league decided that the double technical when Cousins went face to face with Bismack Biyombo really shouldn’t have been one. The league made the right call — this didn’t deserve to be a double tech, just split the guys up and tell them to walk away (some refs lean too much on the double technical).

It got rescinded and Cousins played for the Kings Tuesday night when they took on the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Cousins had 32 points in that game but it wasn’t enough as the Thunder won, 118-110. Which actually is good for the Kings lottery odds and what the team’s fans wanted. Oh, isn’t the end of the season fun?

    Hate the double technical. Didn’t see the incident but if no elbows were thrown than I’m okay with refs just breaking it up. Let’s not suspend people unnecessarily.

    Glad thursday’s game vs the lakers is meaningless now, the kings will be up for that one, last game at arco and all.
