Sacramento’s December to Remember (you can read about it here and here) ended with a throwback performance from DeMarcus Cousins — an ejection, after tossing Boston point guard Marcus Smart around like a rag doll. Amid all the puzzling front office decisions, the last thing the Kings can afford is have Boogie regress into old habits. Habits that include hot, bone-headed incidents like this.

In a related story, the Kings lost to the Celtics, 106-84. They’ve dropped six of their last eight games, with little hope of recovering in the brutal Western Conference.
