Technical rescinded, Kings' Cousins to play
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP)
Cousins was set to serve a one-game suspension after picking up his 13th technical of the season in a win at Charlotte on Sunday. Instead, he was in Sacramento's starting lineup.
Coach Keith Smart says he hopes the close call is a lesson to Cousins that he has to leave himself a cushion and can't afford to pick up technical fouls throughout the season.
The Kings were without leading scorer Marcus Thornton for the third straight game with a left quad contusion. Reserve Terrence Williams was out sick.
