(Reuters) - Sacramento Kings
power forward DeMarcus Cousins is facing a suspension after
receiving his 16th technical foul of the season on Monday against
the Chicago Bulls.
Cousins tallied a pair of technical fouls during the 112-107 loss to
the Bulls, boiling over the league limit.

from Sacramento’s game against Boston on Wednesday.
Cousins, who will be making his third All Star appearance later this
month, finished the night with 18 points, 14 rebounds and five
