Warriors' Cousins receives technical for tossing opponent's shoe into stands

Golden State Warriors center DeMarcus Cousins had his best game of the season on Monday, but received a peculiar technical foul against the Charlotte Hornets.

Cousins picked up Hornets guard Jeremy Lamb's shoe and tossed it into the stands in Golden State's 121-110 win over Charlotte.

The referees were quick to respond with a technical.

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 was not happy with the technical, he did record a season-high 24 points on nine-of-15 shooting. He is averaging 14.1 points and 7.6 rebounds per game in 2018-19.

Cousins signed a one-year, $5.3million deal with the Warriors in free agency this offseason.

Golden State sit atop the Western Conference standings with a 43-17 record. They will face the Miami Heat on Wednesday.
