The Golden State Warriors pulled off a 128-100 win over the New York Knicks on Friday night.

Cousins has been assessed 118 technicals and has been ejected from a game 13 times during his eight-year career.

According to Steve Kerr in a postgame interview, Foster had warned Cousins about talking to Knicks player Enes Kanter from the bench.

Cousins also became the third player in the last 15 season to get tossed out in a game he didn't play.

If second place on the starting grid left the Dutch youngster feeling sore, the front row lockout was still Red Bull's first since the U.S.

But the four-time All-Star was only issued one technical foul at Madison Square Garden rather than the two normally needed for a sending-off - because of the manner of his response to the official.

"He said [the ejection] was because he had already warned him and then he kept going at Scott, I guess, so I'll talk to him about it". "I think you'll see us play through DeMarcus once he's back, and we'll put him on the low block and have guys cutting around him".

He recently has started practicing more with the rest of his teammates instead of just the individual work he's been doing since training camp began.

Apparently, the ejection marked a lot of things for Cousins, who is still recuperating from a torn achilles injury that sidelined him for the latter part of last season when he was with the New Orleans Pelicans.
