The league fined Morris and Cousins, and the two have long been grieving
NBA issued a ticket to the Lakers Morris and Rockets Cousins on the 13th:In the previous two-team game, the two had a fierce conflict, Cousins was fined $10,000; Morris was fined $35,000.
In that game, Morris made a push when competing with the Rockets Tate for the basket. After seeing his teammates being bullied, Cousins immediately took the lead for Tate. Morris gave a shove in return. After falling to the ground, Morris quickly got up and rushed towards Cousins, with some physical movements and constant provocations. But Cousins remained calm, and he did not have more entanglements with Morris. Morris was convicted of a technical foul and a first-degree malicious foul. Cousins got a technical foul. But after that, Cousins fouled the Lakers James, and the referee gave him a second level malicious foul.
The league issued a ticket to two players, Cousin Si was relatively light, but Morris was fined heavily. Rockets coach Silas once expressed his support for Cousins’ actions. He said:“I understand and support Cousins’ actions. He saw his teammates being bullied and helped his teammates. I support such actions.”
Cousins and Morris are both players with more technical fouls in the league, and they also have a lot of origins. In February last year, Cousins was waived by the Lakers due to injury, and it was Morris who replaced him. Therefore, this is also one of the reasons for the jealousy after the two met.
