DeMarcus Cousins shoves Bulls coach while Chicago players argue with a referee

Jimmy Butler will be a game-time decision against Kings tonight

Wade scored 31 points, including the final seven for Chicago to rescue the Bulls and help them hold off the Sacramento Kings 112-107 on Monday night. More importantly, it was his 16th technical foul of the season, which means Cousins will automatically be suspended for one game and miss playing Wednesday night when the Boston Celtics come to town. Cousins thanked Divac for the support by shoving Bulls assistant coach Jim Boylen in the third quarter and, later, picking up a second technical foul with 1.1 seconds left. The Kings' furious comeback wasn't aided much by DeMarcus Cousins, who managed 18 points on 16 shots to go along with two freaky technical fouls.

Ty Lawson scored a quick 10 in the first several minutes of the quarter, then back-to-back triples from the two Kings combatants, Barnes and Cousins, cut the lead to 107-105 with 56 seconds left. Chicago's Taj Gibson thought he was fouled on a layup attempt and appeared to say something.

DeMarcus Cousins had 18 points and 14 rebounds for Sacramento. Collison cut the lead to two with a three pointer with 4:05 and while Wade and Michael Carter-Williams each made a couple plays to get the Bulls some much needed buckets, the Kings' star was there when they needed him most.

The Bulls played without leading scorer Jimmy Butler, who missed his second consecutive game with a bruised right heel.

The story following the Monday morning shootaround at the Golden1 Center didn't exactly scream that Butler would be available for the game against the Kings.

DeMarcus Cousins is going to lose a game check due to his temper.

He responded against Sacramento by scoring 11 of Chicago's final 17 points.

"But I want to play basketball, so sometimes you gotta risk it to get the biscuit, as Nate Robinson used to say, " Butler said. "It was slow start, a very slow start".

Before the midway point of the first quarter the Kings were already down 20-5. Fight to get back in the game.
