DeMarcus Cousins Scores 54th Point, Spits Mouth Guard Out; Gets Ejected Then Un-ejected (Video)
This had to be the wildest sequence of the NBA season so far.
Last night, Sacramento Kings volatile star DeMarcus Cousins scored his 54th point in the wanning seconds of the fourth quarter to put the Kings ahead of the Portland Trail Blazers. He then proceeded to celebrate by spitting his mouthguard out at the opposing bench and got ejected by officials because of it.
Cousins was furious as he set into a dead sprint towards the locker room. After looking at the replay and talking it over, officials did something that possibly has never been done before and un-ejected Cousins, so he came back onto the court to finish the game.

Cousins was able to shoot the free throw, giving him 55 points on the night as well as a key block on the next play on Damian Lillard to seal the game.
He then ranted about it after the game.
Another day in the life of DeMarcus Cousins.
