Cousins scored 19 points with 11 rebounds, seven assists, five steals, three blocks and three 3-pointers before he was ejected from the game alongside the Golden State forward with 1:14 remaining in the game.

I can't let anybody take me off my game. I've been in the league too long. "That's just who he is, I gotta be me".
