DeMarcus Cousins has been ejected in the second quarter of the game between Golden State Warriors and Charlotte Hornets after he has been assessed a flagrant foul.

Per ESPN, The play in question came with 6 minutes, 9 seconds left in the second quarter as Cousins tried to get position on Hernangomez in the paint with his right arm, which made contact with Hernangomez’s head following a second move. Cousins reacted as though he could not believe the decision after the video review, and fans in Oracle Arena started booing following the announcement of the ejection.

“It was inadvertent,” Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said after Golden State’s 137-90 victory. “He was trying to box him out, but he had a closed fist, he hit him in the head and so automatic ejection. I haven’t seen the replay, though.

“I felt bad for DeMarcus — he was playing well and you hate when something like that happens when it’s just a random, you know, random act,” Kerr added. “There wasn’t any malice intended.”
