Prediction Contest: DeMarcus Cousins' 16th Technical

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

In Tuesday night's game against the Rockets, DeMarcus Cousins picked up his 14th and 15th technical fouls after arguing a call in the 3rd quarter. That puts him at 15 for the year with one more tech meaning that he gets suspended for a game, and every two techs after that mean another suspension. Cousins has been among the league leaders in technicals each year he's been in the league.

Coach Malone jokingly mentioned in his media availability yesterday that there were players on the team that were taking bets as to when Cousins will pick up his 16th technical, so I thought, why not let's do exactly that and make this part of our prediction contest!

So, the rules and predictions:

1. Pick Over/Under which I have set at 5 games for DeMarcus to pick up his 16th foul (He has averaged a tech every 3.27 games). This is worth 1 point to get right.

2. Pick the game you think he will pick up his 16th technical in, here's the schedule. Guessing this correctly is worth 10 points. However, if the technical is rescinded it will not count.

3. Predict DeMarcus' final technical foul count for the season.  This is worth 3 points.

On a lighter note (and by lighter I mean the Kings roster will be lighter), the NBA just announced that DeMarcus Cousins suspended for Friday's game against the Lakers for punching Patrick Beverly. I totally missed when that happened, but here's the video proof. Cousins was also fined $20,000 for verbally abusing an official. This will be Cousins' first game missed due to suspension this season. The Kings are 0-9 with Cousins out of the lineup.
