Report: DeMarcus Cousins suspended two games for Sean Elliott confrontation


After reviewing the postgame confrontation between Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins and Spurs color commentator Sean Elliott, the NBA has levied a two-game suspension according to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports.

Rather than doling out a fine, the league felt it was necessary to suspend the mercurial center without pay. Cousins, averaging 17.3 points and 9.8 rebounds this season, will miss tonight’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers and the Portland Trail Blazers game on Tuesday.
