Several former and current NBA players Congratulations to Chris Paul and the Suns Enter the 2021 NBA Finals on Wednesday night. Clippers center DeMarcus Cousins is not one of them.
At the end of the fourth quarter of Game 6 of the Western Conference Finals, Paul was hit by a technical foul after speaking a few words on the bench with Los Angeles. Phoenix was leading by 24 points at the time, so Paul knew that the final whistle was coming and might be talking about the last nonsense.
Well, Cousins doesn’t appreciate this.These guys have A bit of history, So it’s not surprising to see Cousins yelling in Paul’s direction.
“You want to know why no one uses your weak butt,” Cousins said.
This marked the second time Cousins and Paul caused a commotion in the sixth game. In the third quarter, Paul scored alone against Cousins. When Cousins went to fetch the ball, his elbow was close to Paul’s neck.
There was some contact, but Paul’s reaction was like being hit by a steel chair, which is a very CP3 thing.
Cousins was convicted of a technical foul for “physical taunting”-no matter what it meant-but Paul missed the free throw. (As Rashid Wallace said, “The ball doesn’t lie.”)
However, Paul finally had the last laugh, scoring 41 points (16 of 24 shots), 8 assists, 4 rebounds and 3 steals in this victory. There is no weakness in that statistical line.
