But the league noticed.
Sacramento Kings forward DeMarcus Cousins has been suspended one game without pay for hitting Atlanta Hawks forward Al Horford in the head with a forearm, it was announced today by Kiki VanDeWeghe, Executive Vice President, Basketball Operations.
The incident occurred with 2:00 remaining in the first quarter of the Hawks’ 103-97 win over the Kings on Wednesday, Nov. 18 at Philips Arena.
Cousins will serve his suspension tonight when the Kings face the Miami Heat at 7:30 p.m. ET at AmericanAirlines Arena.
Cousins probably should’ve been tossed during the game, but the league got the final call right.
