DeMarcus Cousins has been upset when he's been left out of games in the fourth quarters.

So Cousins was asked if he was surprised Jason Thompson wasn't on the court with him on the court in the fourth even though he had 15 points on 7-of-10 shooting.

"I can't make a call on that," Cousins said. "That's not my decision."

That decision had players confused, as did the decision not to play Isaiah Thomas most of the fourth quarter.

Thomas didn't stick around to answer questions. I don't remember him ever doing that in two seasons.

Thompson was about as controversial (while remaining diplomatic) as he ever gets in discussing the situation:

"I don't know why I didn't but sometimes you've just got to go with the flow. Especially those games, when you're in good rhythm and it's positive, it's not like you were down or anything like that, you were definitely up at times and energy was there, making shots, feeling good - the last place I want to be is watching it from the bench. For me being a veteran kind of, slightly, being my fifth year, you try not to get too frustrated; you try and learn from it."
