Do not make Vince Carter angry. It won’t end well. Just ask Devin Booker. During Tuesday’s Suns-Grizzlies game, Carter was agitated after a foul from Booker. When Booker followed Carter as he mockingly continued a drive to the basket, Carter hit Booker with a shocking elbow. Seriously, he dropped Devin Booker. Carter must not have the patience to deal with these young players.
Rod Beard: #Pistons may miss #Pelicans DeMarcus Cousins tomorrow, after he got his 18th technical and is set to miss the game — unless it’s rescinded.
Cousins reached a suspension-triggering 16th technical foul more quickly than anyone in NBA history. From there, every other technical results in a one-game suspension, and the one last night was his 18th. Cousins: I don’t feel I did anything wrong to receive it. So, hopefully the league handles it the right way and hopefully I get the benefit of the doubt.
