DeMarcus Cousins of the Denver Nuggets has been fined $15,000 for kicking towels into the crowd during Game 4 of their first-round series against the Golden State Warriors, the NBA announced on Tuesday.
The kick occurred during the second quarter of Denver’s 126-121 victory at Ball Arena. Cousins, incensed at the officials after picking up his third foul in a five-minute stint, walked walked to the bench, high-fived some teammates and took out his frustration on a stack of towels, some of which landed on fans sitting courtside.
Aside from the fouls and the infraction that led to this fine, Cousins’ 10 minutes of playing time went well on Sunday. Denver went on a 14-2 run with him on the court at the beginning of the second quarter, and he finished with 10 points on 3-for-3 shooting, four rebounds and two assists.
Down 3-1, Cousins and the Nuggets face elimination again on Wednesday in San Francisco.
