"It's really ridiculous!"
DeMarcus Cousins had himself a hell of a game last night against Portland, scoring 55 points, physically and verbally abusing Meyers Leonard, and calling out the officials in his post-game interview for their... ridiculousness.
Boogie's 55 point effort catapulted the Kings to a 126-121 victory over the Blazers, but he was only able to record his 55th point after being ejected, and then unejected, from the game.

After the game Cousins went on his rant about the officiating and took some more jabs at Blazers big man Meyers Leonard who he "brought back down to Earth" last night in dominating fashion.
Unfortunately, the last few seconds of his verbal assault were cut out due to a mic issue.
We had mic issues all evening with the battery pack connecting firmly. When I switched hands with the mic it disrupted the connection https://t.co/09D8xH4k1E— Kayte Christensen (@kayte_c) December 21, 2016
He was all smiles in the locker room though when talking to the media, and we all know how his relationship with the media has gone so far this month.
The same can't be said for Leonard who told reporters that Boogie's antics are "over the top."
