DeMarcus Cousins was booted out of Monday night’s game in OKC after referees determined that he elbowed Russell Westbrook in the head.

Tony Allen was pretty sure that Russ flopped in order to draw the flagrant foul on his Pelicans teammate.

New Orleans withstood Boogie’s ejection and held on for a 114-107 road victory against the struggling Thunder.

Per the AP:

“We didn’t think it was that fair. He doesn’t do anything intentional,” [Jrue] Holiday said of Cousins, who was assessed a flagrant foul for swinging an elbow near Thunder star Russell Westbrook’s head. “We just wanted to win for him.”
