Kings center DeMarcus Cousins renewed his beef with Bulls forward Mike Dunleavy during and after Sacramento’s 99-70 home victory over Chicago on Monday.

“He’s a clown, and he’s scared,” Cousins said, in post-game comments recorded by CowbellKingdom.com. “I wouldn’t even waste my time on him if I ever saw him outside of the gym. He’s a clown.”

The Sacramento Bee reports that the two players mixed it up on the court during a wild game.

Dunleavy pushed Cousins as he ran down the court at one point, and Dunleavy also complained on a foul that Cousins tried to injure him.
Cousins received a technical foul in a contest that also saw Joakim Noah ejected following a profane tirade against the officials.

The Cousins/Dunleavy bad blood dates back to last March, when Cousins was assessed a flagrant foul 2 and ejected for elbowing Dunleavy, then with the Bucks, in the back of the head. Cousins and Dunleavy were also assessed double technical fouls prior to Cousins’ ejection, after Dunleavy appeared to undercut Cousins as he battled for position on a Marcus Thornton drive. Cousins later told reporters he felt Dunleavy’s action was intentional.
