DeMarcus Cousins looked like he took a cheap shot at O.J. Mayo during Monday's Mavericks game, and afterward, O.J. Mayo took some shots of his own.

The Mavericks won easily against the Kings Monday night. After a run of 19 unanswered points in the first half, Dallas never really looked back. All of which makes it easier to focus on what happened a little bit later, with the Kings down 27, when DeMarcus Cousins took a cheap shot at Mavericks guard O.J. Mayo.

"It wasn't intentional, but there was a lot of trash talk," Cousins said afterward. The play ended with a double technical for Mayo and Cousins.

Mayo's reaction? More from ESPN Dallas:

Mayo said he told Cousins to "play basketball and you've got a chance to be a good player," but that type of conduct made him a "garbage player."
