DeMarcus Cousins pushes NYK security guard while arguing with the officials

C'mon Boogie!

In a strange sequence last night, DeMarcus Cousins pushed away a New York Knicks security guard who seemed to be trying to escort him off the court.

After the game, DeMarcus had this to say about the incident (via NY Daily News):

"Actually I think he was trying to remove me from talking to the refs, so he kind of put his hand on my back and tried to move me forward. So I don't think it was that big of an issue, honestly."

It's just another head-scratcher in the midst of one long head-scratcher of a season. Why would the security guard step in between a player and a ref? And why did Boogie seemingly stare him down for a second afterwards? Or did the security guard just accidentally run into him and Boogie over-reacted?
